The Val Racher Blog: Bowled over by the rate these mugs have been selling



WITH THE first exhibition of 2015 just 2 months away, I’m working hard to complete my first pen & ink drawing of Eastbourne.

It covers the area from Beachy Head to the Pier. Later this year I’ll be starting on a second drawing of Eastbourne which will include the Pier along to the Sovereign Centre and the third, and last in the series, will cover Sovereign Harbour.

Unfortunately, the recent wet weather has thwarted my plans to go into town and take some photographs of the buildings I want to include in the drawing.

I have made some progress though, working from earlier sketches I took, and I’m pretty confident I’ll have it finished in time to enter in the Society of Eastbourne Artists’ Exhibition at the Lansdowne Hotel at the beginning of May.

The exhibition will run over the weekend of Saturday 2nd May & Sunday 3rd May and will also include the Bank Holiday Monday, 4th May. Entry is free to the public.

I also hope to have a craft table and display some of my paperweights which are a combination of watercolour paintings and pen & ink drawings. Subjects include local landscapes, dogs and flowers. In addition, I will have a selection of my Pevensey Bay Mugs there.

I’m bowled over by the rate these mugs have been selling at the Pevensey Village Store since they first went on sale at the beginning of February. It seems red and blue are the most popular colours but turquoise and magenta are running close behind.

I’m grateful to Tia & Ali for letting me display the mugs in their shop window and pleased that they are drawing in more customers for them.
