The Aardvark Blog
Yesterday we finally managed to file the hideous VAT, so not withstanding the dull start everything seems brighter. Sue our new occasional team member has come in to give me a hand processing some of the immense backlog (which last week's trip to the auctions has not helped), and the rare absence of customers has given me a chance to have a chat about what's happening next.
As a result of big profiles in both the Shropshire Journal and Hereford Times we had a good flow of visitors through the exhibition yesterday, and a nice group of additional sales. But to repeat there are still some wonderful maps across all the Marches area for sale, and you still have a week to make it to the exhibition before it closes next Sunday.
Once the map exhibition closes our thoughts will turn to the Brocante/Flea Market at the end of the month and the Shropshire Hills Art Week show which is opening almost immediately after. This year's show is called 'Shropshire Boogie-Woogie' and the announcement cards feature a superb semi-abstract painting by Helena Orlowski (shown right). The show opens on the 4th of June and this year is only open for 9 days, so don't miss out!
