New Outlet, New Cards, New Printer, Good Brecon Craft Fair

The weather has been terrible so I haven’t been out and about since early last week, although when I’ve got stuff I have to do indoors I’m always grateful for bad weather as I don’t feel so bad about not going out. The Brecon Craft Fair was on Saturday and I pulled out all the stops and have done all I can to improve my display. I had 14 framed photos on display in my new frames and it seemed to work. The weather was bad, May is supposedly the worst retail month of the year and there was a small holders’ show in Builth Wells so it was expected to be a bad day for sales. There was often a lot of people around my stall and I even sold a framed photo! This is something I’ve never done at Brecon before, so it was very good. I took twice as much as May last year, so I’ve definitely got it right I think. I should have taken a photo of it really – maybe next month…

 

The Bookshelf in Saltash is now selling my Brunel fireworks cards. There are 6 different designs and they’re blank inside so if you’re in Saltash, make sure you check them out! They also sell fridge magnets with my fireworks photos on too amongst other products of mine.

 

Pontardawe Post Office by The Cross will soon be my selling greetings cards (by the end of this week). They’re initially taking 3 different designs of Pontardawe itself to see how it goes. After speaking to someone at the Brecon craft fair, I really decided I need to increase my outlets, so this is very good news.

 

My trusty Epson R2400 died – this one lasted 18 months (my first lasted 12 months). I think it was due to printing on thick card which damaged the heads as everyone else seems to have Epson printers that have lasted for years. I have now replaced it with the highly regarded Epson R2880, so any orders will now be printed on this fantastic printer.
