Thanks mate, yes the copper thing is a lamp I knocked up when I had run out of engine parts, it was polished & then lacquered so didn't have to be done again

Similar to you, as a kid our house was full of brass & copper things, we even had a copper topped coffee table I used to have to polish, I hated that bloody thing & used to get twitchy every time someone went near it, probably accounts for my aversion to polishing now :laughing-rolling:

Have you got an Ebay shop ? or a website ?

A mate of mine was going to build me a posh website but that hasn't happened yet, I know I could do it myself but thought it might be better if he did it as that's his job

I do sell on ebay but not this stuff yet & I don't have a shop, I'm a bit wary of listing it as there are plenty of folks who will just copy my ideas

Etsy is useless as there isn't a place for anything like I make & the other similar places either don't have the traffic or cost a fortune in fees

Still making a few quid at it but nowhere near what I could make if I could find a reliable outlet

Just a thought Slim - have a look at Drew Pritchard's website and drop him an email - he has worldwide contacts and may be a reliable buyer for you - Great stuff in the pics :-bd: :-bd: :-bd:

My friend had a craft shop here that took in other crafters stuff for a small comission. Sadly shes stopped now..

Maybe ask if you can have a corner in a local shop ?

Thanks lads :-bd:

I have been looking at places that might provide an outlet but there isn't anything local to me, probably the nearest places with the right sort of shops are either Stratford or Matlock Bath

I have a bit of a plan to tour round shops Stratford in the summer as they get plenty of foot traffic from tourists, bikers & general oddballs :lol:

Cant hurt to ask.. :-bd:

Around here they are quite open to stuff like that..

Ive seen a few shops that have given a bit of space to some outside products..
