Petty theft hurts a lot

-A A +A
By The Staff

On Oct. 14 in the afternoon between 1 and 3:30 p.m. the sandwich board sign out in front of my new business (Karen Wray Fine Art-Gallery and Studio at 2101 Trinity Drive, Suite B-2) was stolen. The sandwich board was not small. It is 36 inches high by 24 inches wide, made of white plastic with attached signs stating “Gallery / Open” in black print on yellow corrugated plastic. Earlier, on Sept. 11, this sign was outside with 10 balloons attached to the top, announcing the Arts Crawl that was taking place that evening. My husband and I walked outside for a moment when we noticed two boys approaching the sign; one boy removed a balloon from the sign and started walking away. After my husband shouted at him to put the balloon back, the boy turned back and reattached the balloon to the sign. Just because a sign is outside with balloons attached does not mean that the sign or the balloons are free to anyone walking by. Having just opened my business in March 2009, this sign was practically the only way to inform the public of my gallery’s existence, other than the banner attached to the north side of the building. This banner is not easily seen by traffic on Trinity Drive.
