Secret Postcard Sale

This is one secret that you shouldn’t keep to yourself!

We’ve created a unique postcard which will feature as part of the Made in Essex Secret Postcard Sale alongside 99 other fabulous creations.

The sale will raise money for an incredible local project run by the charity, Metal, providing art classes for people living with dementia. Follow @metalsouthend and their #netparkwellbeingproject for more info.

You’ll find all 100 postcards (including the Art of Adventure one obviously) on display at 70 The Broadway, Leigh on Sea from Sat 26th Jan – Fri 1st Feb. Pop along and check them out. They’ll also be online afterwards from Saturday 2nd Feb.

If you want to get your hands on a Golden Ticket and the chance to own one of the mini masterpieces, you’ll need to get in early. Tickets go on sale on Saturday 26th January on made-in-essex.com and you’ll also find full details of the fundraising initiative there too.

Size Does Matter

Ahoy there Thames Estuary lovers! You asked and we listened.

Our popular Thames Estuary location prints are now available in a new, smaller size (A4). That means you now have the choice of six different sizes, from the large A1 down to the new, small A4 version.

The A4 print works particularly well as part of a group of pictures. Choose four in identical frames and position them in a block format on your wall for a striking display.

Take a look at the range of Thames Estuary pictures available, from Thorpe Bay to Leigh-on-Sea via Southend, Westcliff and Chalkwell.

In The Pink

  

October is the month when our surroundings change colour. Leaves on the trees turn shades of red, orange and brown. The grass scorched by the summer sun becomes greener again. Evening skies are no longer a hazy blue but darker and darker.

Then comes the bursts of pink. Look around the shops and you'll see a veritable array of pink products and decorations to raise money and awareness for breast cancer.

We want to do our bit too. If you buy one of our pink pictures this month (choose from the striking flamingo or the fun Fiat 500), we will donate 10% to Breast Cancer Care who do such wonderful work.

This October, please go pink to help people with breast cancer now and in years to come.
