Equipment Robbery at Light Grey Late Last Night.

Untitled

Hi Everyone, we have some sad news. Late last night we were broken into and someone stole a bunch of our equipment. Luckily, we keep everything on cloud storage and, though it sucks to lose some great machines, all of the art (in the gallery and on file) and the rest of our files are safe and sound.

Today was a weird day, with the police coming in and out, and our landlord helping us track down video from the surveillance cameras. They took prints (which is something I didn't realize they did for break-ins) and asked a lot of questions.

Anyway, it's been an interesting day to say the least, but despite it all, we're in pretty good spirits. We've been eating handfulls of candy to 'ease the pain', and for one day out of our lives, we got a chance to sit down and not work.

Thanks again for all the support and patience as we sort things out. We'll be a little slower to respond to emails over the next couple days, but we'll make sure to get back to you asap! AND! If you are in the area and have seen something you think we should know (or if someone tries to sell you cheap computers out of the trunk of a car) we'd love to know! Thanks and we're keeping our spirits up!

Let me know if there's anything I can help with Lindsay-- I don't know if you guys have insurance that will cover everything but if you need to use a couple of my F&F discounts on new machines, just let me know-- I'd be happy to let you.

    1. Thanks Anika! Yeah - we're feeling a lot better. It was just a lot of paperwork and a lot of checking around to see what else is gone. But I think we'll be up and running smoothing again soon :)
