The first day of the pop up shop was a great success, taking nearly a thousand pounds in painting sales. Our newly set up “Card Reader” proved very useful as the majority of sales were made by card rather than cash.
The number of entries was higher than last year and there was lots of interest in all of the paintings on show. Tony Yates very kindly offered to paint a harbour scene during the day which drew quite an audience. Tony delighted some of the younger members of the audience by including the objects that they wanted to see in the picture.
Day two (being Sunday) was much quieter but we still managed to sell three paintings. There was a lot of interest in our Society and several people left their contact details with a view to becoming members.
Definitely a worthwhile venture.
