No, there is nothing wrong with your thief. Stealing from stores isn't an option in IWD. Don't worry though. You will get the chance to accumulate enough money to buy all of that cool stuff.

Just remember to sell things in bulk (for example, store the yeti pelts in a drawer in the upstairs of the inn and when you have a good amount, load up and sell them all at once -- you'll get a better price selling them all together than selling them individually).

actually, you CAN steal in IWD. but i've only found one spot to do it. In upper Dorn, when you speak to the ill tempered Bandoth. You can offer to barter with him for some powerfull summon spells. here, you will get the option to steal
but that's the only place i've found

Ack! I never noticed that! Where is that option presented? At the merchent screen? What happens if your attempt fails? Will he attack like with a failed pickpocket?

I found pick pocket to be rather useless in IWD compared to the other skills... Not like in Planescape or in BG where you have some use from it...

Beware of whiney Paladins though...

Thieving is the last skill I improve for my Thief, as it is rather less important than 'find traps' & 'open locks'. As a consequence, I don't think I have EVER used the skill, lol! Gosh! I should be a Paladin!
