I've read about this several times in the newspaper over the decades. In each case stories were related about how they got ripped off and stopped doing the honor system. People who use that method don't last long if they try.

A local potter in Spring City Utah does this with all of his pottery. One weekend he went on a trip and he forgot to close up shop. When he came back, almost every piece in his entire shop had been taken (several months to a year worth of work). When he went to the back of his shop and found his money pot was literally overflowing with cash. Not one piece was unpaid for.
Turns out a tourist bus came by the shop and they snatched up everything.
Good to know there are decent people in the world.
