I’m excited to say I have a new retail outlet for selling my work. I’ve taken a space at Botany Bay, a big old mill near Chorley that has been converted into a major shopping destination.
I’ll have a fairly sizeable permanent display of framed and unframed prints for sale. It’ll be interesting to see how they sell without me there to tell the story. Normally I can tell the potential customer all about the shot, where it was taken, when, the challenges of getting it, what you can see in the scene, and such like. I’m sure this helps with the sale, bringing the physical object to life. I won’t be there at Botany Bay so they’ll have to stand up for themselves.
I signed the papers yesterday and I plan to have the space fully stocked and open for monday the 3rd of April, less than two weeks away. I’ve got a hell of a job of printing, mounting and framing ahead of me.
I don’t know if I have many Lancashire-based readers but if you’re near Chorley, drop in a have a look and let me know what you think.
