I finally remembered to take my camera with me on a day out! On a grey and blustery day, with a craving to see the sea, we visited Llangrannog beach in Pembrokeshire. Low tide enabled us to see the beautiful rock formations, the striations of different colours really sung in the miserable weather, the rain bringing out the slate blue tones.
Our favourite beach-side cafe was unfortunately closed, with all the windows boarded up. They were clearly anticipating the wrath of the sea which has recently battered the Northwest Wales coast.
I love a good rummage in a charity shop. In the depths of Carmarthenshire I found this wonderful, I'm guessing 1960's 'Sylvac' tableware. The pattern is supposed to be lace but I love it, as, to me it looks more like coral formations.
After much thought, I am having a radical overhaul of my pricing. I have just recently been invited to take part in two prestigious exhibitions both of which will take 50% on any sales. In addition my current retail commitments are taking 25% commission. I'm finding it more and more difficult to justify my current reasonable pricing system and they don't reflect the hours involved in production.
I am researching four different pricing strategies ( which I'll report on) passed onto me from various sources and will be making up my mind and repricing everything by the end of July. So, if you've a mind to, it would be wise to buy something now before they increase in price!!
