“If everyone who’d complimented our beautiful gallery had bought just a card we’d still be open.”
When Sarah Hamilton heard this said by a shopkeeper who'd recently had to close her gallery she decided to start a campaign to encourage people to buy from independent sellers and to understand just how important each sale is......and so began the 'Just a card' campaign.
At the time I read about this campaign Sian announced her next 'pile of postcards' exchange.....where all the participants exchange 6 postcards with other bloggers from around the world....and I visited the 'Ladybird by Design' exhibition at the De La Warr Pavilion in Bexhill......a wonderful exhibition to celebrate 100 years of Ladybird books......a real taste of nostalgia for anyone in the UK who was a child in the 60s/70s/80s
and like so many galleries the De La Warr has a little gift shop......and in there I bought some postcards especially made for the exhibition.....ready to send round the world.
Do you try and buy from independent sellers and galleries....even if it is 'just a card'?
