A series of eight 'Historic East Riding' DVDs are available to buy, priced at £5.99 each or £35 for the full set.
The DVDs are video presentations of various clips of archive footage.
Please note: picture quality may vary according to the format of the original source footage. Each video lasts around 1 hour.
There are postcard-sized prints of many of the pictures in the art gallery collection, including The Panic and pictures by Fred Elwell, Mary Elwell and Thomas Bonfrey Burton.
There may be larger reproductions of selected prints but these are not on offer at all times. At present the following prints are available:
These are reproduced on high quality photographic paper in A3 format at £6 per print. Price includes any postage or packing where applicable. Frames and mounts are not supplied.
Many of the items have been produced specifically for the Treasure House. Wherever possible all other items are sourced from small independent businesses.
All the silk items are produced under One Tambon One Product (OTOP), the Thailand equivalent of Fairtrade, which is a government-backed scheme to provide extra employment for local people. The items are handmade by craftsmen in the northern part of Thailand, with other workers employed out of the farm season.
It is hoped that in the near future the shop will work more with local artists to sell their products, particularly sculpture, ceramics, and glass.
