Hi loyal blog followers. (This is heavily ironic; no-one reads this at all)
In collaboration with a good friend I have just opened a film poster shop in Hamlet Court Road Southend.
We sell genuine cinema posters, rolled or framed. Most of the selection here are the UK quad size (as it’s known in the trade) – the ones used in the light boxes outside the cinema to advertise what is currently playing.
These are quite collectible with premium examples fetching 1,00s of pounds. Regardless of value they look pretty striking when nicely framed and hanging on your wall.
We have some space in the Big Society depatment store, Hamlet Court Road, Essex. N.B. this name bears no relation to the flagship policy conception in the 2010 UK Conservative Party general election manifesto. It is intended to connote the spirit of the proprietor’s aspirations of supporting the community. One way of doing so is providing small businesses a low cost, no nonsense space to trade. Or something like that …
My business partner has been selling movie posters online for over 12 years (at favouritefilm.com, Amazon and Ebay) so this is the first time either of us have tried retail selling.
I will therefore endeavour to blatantly promote this enterprise via my blog. I’ll soon be blatantly promoting my online shop selling movie poster frames through a series of posts. First, an article on collecting film posters from my expert colleague. Then a follow up piece on framing your collection. Truly I have no shame – especially as NO HUMANS EVER READ MY BLOG. There I shouted, twice, with no chance of any remonstration.
So pay us a visit sometime. We can be found at The Big Society Department Store, 106 Hamlet Court Road, Westcliff on Sea.
