Derry Nice Things was started almost by chance back in 2015. Having always loved vintage travel posters and being a proud Derry man, I set out one day to search high and low for one from my home town to hang on my walls at home. I soon realised that these prints were extremely difficult to come by so I set about creating my own. The first few designs proved very popular with family and friends so I began working on a variety of scenes which were special to me. Soon I had a range of local scenes of Derry and Donegal and was encouraged to showcase them at Christmas markets and craft fairs. The response was overwhelming and from there I began regularly attending more market events not only in Derry, but further afield.
The most rewarding part of the process is meeting the customers on market days and hearing the special significance that some of our scenes have with the who buy them as well as hearing how far our prints travel to. Hopefully we’ll continue to go from strength to strength and that our customers will enjoy viewing our prints as much as we’ve enjoyed creating them.
