I know this thread is pretty much dead, but only other collectors will understand my anger. I took the plunge 8 months ago and hired a house cleaner. I just fired her this week because I suspected more than one occasion of theft. Turns out I was right. Her assistant was stealing from me. Specifically my makeup (and I think a piece or two of clothing). I noticed this week my Marilyn eye shadows are gone. I'm devastated. It has no value but it was mine and this collection was my favorite. I suspect I'll realize more is missing but I'm really too upset right now to even start looking. To think she went through my makeup drawers is sickening.
