GREAT BARRINGTON -- A stolen car packed with handmade crafts to be sold at an upcoming Rudolf Steiner School fair was discovered by police on Wednesday.
Pittsfield Police found the red 2004 Toyota Corolla, owned by Krista Palmer, on Francis Street, according to Great Barrington police.
The car had an estimated $500 to $600 in handmade crafts that were supposed to be sold at the 41st annual Holiday Handcraft Fair on Nov. 9. The stolen goods include hand-sewn Waldorf dolls, embroidered baby booties, felt scarves and other knitted goods.
The stolen crafts were discovered in the car when it was found, but whether any of the crafts suffered damage has not yet been determined, according to school officials.
No one has yet been arrested in connection with the stolen car, according to police.
Jenna Lamond, development coordinator, spoke positively about the upcoming fair following the discovery of the goods.
Following a Wednesday article about the stolen goods, Lamond said the school heard from community members who donated crafts and cash donations. She would not specify how much money was donated.
Still, Lamond said organizers are invigorated, with the fair three weeks away. "I think we have all kind of been revitalized and mobilized to make this an awesome fair. It's brought an awareness to the fair. I feel really good about it," she said.
