Jim's photo expo @Café de la Promenade (Bourgueil)

François Jamet, Domaine des Vallettes, 
Saint-Nicolas-de-Bourgueil

In conjunction with 2014 Bourgueillothérapie I held my first photographic exhibition – 'de Nicolas à Patrice' – at Café de la Promenade

I'm very pleased with the way it has gone. Of the 35 photos in the expo only 10 remain unsold. The framed photos cost 60€ each with 50€ going to La Croix Rouge – this year's charity of choice for the Bourgueillothérapie. In total 28 photos have been sold as I had orders for three additional copies. This makes at least 1400€ for La Croix Rouge so far.  I don't have the exact total as five were sold by auction on the Sunday afternoon of Bourgueillothérapie.

Many thanks Susan. Hopefully most of the rest will sell so the total will be close to £2000.
