Bargin Box

We decided to follow other exhibitions by having a "Bargain Box" (for those artist that have paid the £4 entry fee). The box is for those paintings that you are still holding and want to sell quickly, at a bargain price, to make room for your new work (15% commission will apply on all sales).

Overview

We had a rather successful affordable art show this year with lots of interest, 19 paintings sold, despite the not-quite-central location of the shop and some dodgy weather. Here are sales amounts

CategoryPrice
paintings£1118
bowers£239
cards£102
etchings£40
entry fees£4
membership£33
total£1536

This year we also had the facility for card payments for the first time. Although most payments were still by cash £713, credit cards came in a close second £532, with y'oldy cheques at £291. Certainly this will be even more important come the summer exhibition when the amounts taken will hopefully be larger.

Many thanks for all the effort everybody has put in to achieve another successful exhibition, especially after the late start due to finding a location to hold it in. Thanks especially to all those who helped turn a dingy room into an exciting display. Finally, here's the return of Vincent.

Finaly, finally, here's a picture of eveyone waiting outside of the shop for the buying to cease.
