To the person who stole the pet jewelry lady's keychain at the farmer's market:

When you steal from a vendor at the farmer's market, you're really not helping your local community. When a person vends at a farmer's market, a lot of the money goes back into the community. There's the booth fee, which helps the farmer's market keep going, encouraging local produce and crafters, which take less gas to get to market and thus are better for the environment. Any profit that people make at the market often either goes back to buy stuff at the market or to help support the local crafter- when you buy local, you help kids go through college, stay at home mothers surmount the wage gap, disabled people have decent work...there's so much value there. So boo on you for stealing.

No love,
