Nerd Wood Trailer break-in recovery
Included in those items were over $1000 worth of merchandise, as well as a toolbox containing various tools and hardware, all of my business cards, stickers, shopping bags, signage, and my entire portfolio. They also took my hand cart/dolly, a brand new folding chair, and as mentioned above, several bins of art and completed work. Most of the stolen items aren't particularly valuable to the thieves, but they put a significant setback to my one-man artistic endeavor.
Let me first say that I'm not particularly comfortable asking for any type of handout. The most ideal way to support me is of course to purchase my wares, which I am always thankful for. But now even this is a challenge, as a good portion of my inventory is not even available to sell. I still have a decent levels of stock, many items are available on my Etsy page, but my initial plan to just say "please buy as much as you can" is tough when my inventory is reduced in such a way.

So, with a genuine and humble heart I'd like to ask for your support however you can provide it. If you can donate to help me recover my inventory and momentum, I will be eternally thankful to you. I'm going to provide a couple of reward levels depending on your contribution. Since I do everything myself, the rewards won't be extravagant, but they will be products of my own personal work. For higher tiers of donation, I will be offering a choice of a custom piece that I'm pretty excited to get started. If you choose to decline either of the rewards, you can simply say so in the comment box. Otherwise, be sure to include your address for shipping. Please allow at least 2 weeks for me to make and ship them.
I offer my sincerest thanks for taking the time to read this, just doing that alone is an enormously appreciated show of support. Feel free to share this with others if you can, I only wish to recoup the costs of my loss and replace the utilities that have been stolen so that I can continue the glorious struggle that comes with being a full-time artist.
Thank you all.
