It’s been a quiet time recently for me photography-wise. I’ve taken delivery of 48,000 of my Wild Wales postcards, beautifully printed for me by a local printer, and now I have to get out on the road and sell them! Just waiting on the first batch of fridge magnets too, being air-freighted from China. At first the idea of producing fridge magnets seemed a bit tacky, but I gradually came around to the idea. Depending on the image (and the quality of the printing) they can be quite attractive. We’ll have to see how they go.

For some reason I happened to glance in the window of a local estate agent this morning. We know they tend to enhance the positives of their properties but this is surely going too far…..!

Fridge magnets - a new venture.......

I  try not to think about Christmas until the middle of December if at all possible. I’m normally the one wearing the Homer Simpson “Bah Humbug” Christmas hat in a dashing shade of black……..

But this year I have a stand at the Winter Fair at Aberystwyth Arts Centre and it opened last Friday, so I’ve been obliged to think ahead. I’m selling the following  –

1. A3 prints in 20×16 inch mounts @ £39.50.
2. 7×5 inch prints in 10×8 inch mounts @ £12.50.
3. Photo-mugs @ £9.50.
4. A small range of photo-magnets @£2.50 or 5 for £10.00.

The latter is a bit of a departure for me. I’ve spoken to a couple of other photographers who recommended that I should try them. There’s a decent profit margin on them (if you buy sensibly) and they take up very little space. They’re popular with retailers too. So I’ve taken the plunge with my first batch and we will see how they go.

The Winter Fair started brilliantly for me, in fact. I spent a couple of hours setting up on Thursday afternoon and during that time sold four prints!

The Winter Fair is at Aberystwyth Arts Centre until Christmas and opens Monday-Saturday 10 am > 8 pm and Sunday 12 noon > 5.30 pm. Buy now while stocks last!
