Original Art that you CAN afford – Christmas Gift Guide

Street-Cafe-629x997

Street Cafe by Paul Taylor

This site plopped into my inbox this week – and I fell instantly in love, and have revisited many times since.

It’s just… brilliant.

Being married to a photographer our walls are filled with images; not just his, but all types of visual art. Sadly, though, much as we love to browse art galleries it’s incredibly rare that we can afford to take hom the art that we fall in love with.
So imagine my joy when I saw this site – which not only supports artists sell their work, but only features original, signed art at prices UNDER £100.

I know!

Naturally, I presumed that it was going to be filled with the duff stuff that no one really wants to buy… but I was staggered at the quality of the work available – and the entirely reachable price tags!

Our model means that if artists don’t sell, they won’t pay to use the site – so it’s pretty much self-regulating in terms of quality.

I’m in LOVE I tell you!

Just look at these few I saw at a quick glance this morning.

We love it because it’s good for the artists as well as us buyers – the artists sell COMMISSION-FREE and direct to buyers via the site. Since most other on-line galleries charge between 30 and 50% commission on sales, the artists are able to pass on this saving to buyers.

Is there much choice – oh yes! There are currently 80+ emerging artists exhibiting over 800 original pieces.

Go. Look.

Buy a genuine piece of art as a gift this Christmas. It’s the gift that gives back every day, every week, every year, for ever.

A 70's child, I’ve been married for a Very Long Time, and appear to have made four children, and collected one large and useless dog along the way. I work, I have four children, I have a dog… ergo, I do not do dusting or ironing. I began LittleStuff back in (gulp) 2004. I like huge mugs of tea. And Coffee. And Cake. And a steaming cone of crispy fresh fluffy chips, smothered in salt and vinegar. #healthyeater When I grow up I am going to be quietly graceful, organised and wear lipstick every day. In the meantime I *may* have a slight butterfly-brain issue.
