I run my own business designing and making jewellery and hats. Broadsheet has kindly featured my work In the past. This weekend I was taking part in a Craft fair in Dublin when a one of a kind Hat worth €200 was stolen from a display. Like many Irish designers I am a very small independent business and having something like this taken is a huge loss. I would be very grateful If anyone happens to see the hat or receive it as a gift could they please contact L Designs on my Facebook page.

I bought a brand new bicycle yesterday and it was stolen from the bike cage in the underground car park of my building in the Ashbrook estate in Clontarf, Co Dublin.

It didn’t even last 24 hours. I didn’t even get to know her. I was hoping you could spread awareness in case people spot it online or in the city. Appreciate any help.

I know you don’t normally do this but my guitar (above) was stolen from the boot of my car about two weeks ago. My car was parked on Jervis Street, Dublin 1. It’s not very expensive but has sentimental value.

I was learning to play and it was given to me by a friend. It’s hard to find an exact replacement online. I’m not holding out much hope but would appreciate any help! Many thanks…

I am a National College of Art and Design (NCA) BA hons student in my final year and doing my degree show at the moment.

I had one of my degree show pieces that I created for Newbridge Silverware in my car and it was stolen at about 1am on Wednesday morning in Portlaoise. My car was parked behind my house on the Mount Mellick Road.

This piece is approximately 16 inches high and 10 inches wide and is arch shaped.

They also took a gift I had for my dad for Father’s Day which was another piece of my art work. I am aware that I shouldn’t have left them in the car but I just forgot to bring them in!

 It’s a Suzuki Bandit 600 with Dominator twin headlights, a led rear brake light, rear hugger, bandit grips and bandit air cover. I’m gutted…

I know you don’t normally but the Hulk (above) has been stolen. Taken at some point yesterday on Clancy Quay [Islandbridge, Dublin 8]. It was locked up at the the bike rack and they even took the lock. It has been on loan to a very wonderful Dutch woman while its owner travels through Peru. We’d really appreciate it if we could get some information on its whereabouts. It’s very distinctive and has pretty unique handlebars and awesome stickers.

My workshop was broken into. Above are a few pictures of some of the pieces that were taken. I feel like a little part of my heart was taken with them. If anyone has any information, I would greatly appreciate it. As many of you know each piece is handmade, which involves many hours of time, love and dedication. I am a small business, a [one-] woman show, trying to do the best I can. Thanks.
