Shrewsbury products proving popular

A range of quirky products produced by a Shrewsbury woman are proving to be best sellers, with county people and visitors alike.

Linda Edwards, an illustrator based in Quarry Place, launched ‘Sunny Side Art’ to celebrate the town she loves and is expanding the selection of products every year.

Mugs, cards, tea towels and notebooks, showcasing Shrewsbury’s diverse range of architecture, are all on sale at Write Here in the town’s High Street and are proving popular this summer.

“Shrewsbury is an amazing place with some really interesting and attractive streets and buildings so I thought I would produce a selection of cards, prints and gifts that highlight the character of the town,” said Linda, who developed the project with her partner Nigel Elliott.

“The illustrations weave together words, pictures and songs to tell a story of my favourite town and its surrounding Shropshire countryside. We pay lots of attention to detail and like to design things that have warmth and soul,” she explained.

Write Here in Shrewsbury’s High Street is one of the county’s largest independent card shops and proprietor John Hall said that the cards were amongst his best-sellers.

He said: “We are delighted with the response to Linda’s range of ‘Sunny Side’ cards, which are proving really popular with local people and visitors to the town this year.

“We have found that many are being posted to friends and family all over the world so they are a great way to promote our county.

“The detailed illustrations make people proud of Shrewsbury and also draw attention to the wonderful architecture here – we are lucky to live and work in such an interesting town.

“Shrewsbury has some really creative people in all fields and we always like to work with local residents to do our bit to support county entrepreneurs,” he added.
