Happy New Year all you SHOP-Clubbers! We trust you all had enjoyable festive seasons, whatever enjoyable may mean for you.
We've had a slow start to the year, not reopening til the 7th January - but! We were far from idle, having tarted up SHOP to a-list movie starlet standards for you all.
This January at SHOP the newsletter is in-keeping with most people during the post-holiday period, that is, it's on a diet. There are a few scraps for you to pick at though and you might even find the odd bit of leftover selection box to cheer your gloomy soul. Go and not gorge yourselves...
As a continution of our vast beautification of SHOP (soon she will be entirely irresistable), we are looking to spruce up our signage (see awful pun above). We want to create two new a-boards for the top and the bottom of the Steps as well, as a new sign for above the door and for the old 'pub sign' on the exterior wall.
We don't need reminding how creatively talented our SHOP Club are, as well as uneccesarily generous, so any ideas, designs, materials you want to pass this way would be very, very much appreciated!
Offers? Offers?! Come on, what more do you want from SHOP?! Remember, all SHOP Club Members get at least 10% off everything, at all times (SHOP-pers get 20% and Hot SHOP Members get 30% too, so there).
Plus, you don't need to worry about the VAT increase - there is no VAT charged on vintage! Not that we would make you pay an extra 2.5% anyway in all liklihood, as our maths isn't up to it.
Saturday 29th January
Inviting people and self-professed artists of the Bristol area to play with the internet in the SHOP! Various images and topics which exist due to the internet will be brought to the attention of attendee's who will be invited to draw and create from the topics raised.
Subsequent to the workshop, a few invited artists and illustrators will discuss with one another opinions on Internet Art. Wrapping up the day with a tidy print auction!
Have a peek at this blog by the event organisers, Bear Gami for more info as and when it arrives:
