ASK NOT what White Rock can do for YOU, but what you can do for WHITE ROCK!

If you LOVE White Rock and are a PHOTO SNAPPER (professional photographers included) or SOCIAL MEDIA JUNKIE and do not have a business (business owners who are not AMAZING White Rock Business Partners are also welcome to become just friends), but like to take photos and have a smart phone or tablet with Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, or other social media, you can help by using the hashtag #AmazingWhiteRock.

If you LOVE White Rock and are a PHOTO SNAPPER (professional photographers included) or SOCIAL MEDIA JUNKIE and do not have a business (business owners who are not AMAZING White Rock Business Partners are also welcome to become just friends), but like to take photos and have a smart phone or tablet with Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, or other social media, you can help by using the hashtag #AmazingWhiteRock.

#AMAZINGWHITEROCK

We would like our AMAZING White Rock Business Partners to reward you for your efforts, in turn THANKING you for a few clicks, a photo and taps on your device. This is an idea under development to get businesses on board to get you FREE STUFF. Posting a pic and using the hashtag #amazingwhiterock will help get the attention of potential business partners, who may choose to offer prizes to people posting photos they like. For example: If your photo shows up on Instagram –   Twitter – or Facebook and they like what you posted – you could WIN. Any business could offer this even without being connected to us (without paying or owing us – FREE IDEA). As long as the photos are taken in White Rock and your posting has the hashtag #amazingwhiterock, feel free to post pics of sunrises, sunsets, the pier, the FAMOUS WHITE ROCK, your dog walking on the sidewalk, selfies with your friends, food & drink, classic cars on Marine Drive, etc. If your photos impress a local business, they could direct message you to offer you a reward (this is up to them, not to us).

A site to promote the AMAZING THINGS about White Rock & Area, British Columbia to the WORLD. YES we do have things to BRAG about, and with a visit to White Rock you will see FIRST HAND why. WARNING: You may want to stay and not go home (this happened to Ric Wallace – he never left).

The idea for the site came from being an Artist Walk ARTographer (The White Rock Beach Gallery) where Ric Wallace was and is  MARKETING* (not selling) his postcards, greeting cards, photo prints, magnets, canvas prints, acrylic prints to local residents and tourists. The most used word by visitors was AMAZING. You have AMAZING postcards, AMAZING greeting cards, AMAZING photos, AMAZING weather, AMAZING  sunsetsAMAZING  sunrisesetc.

People think it was AMAZING Ric Wallace was able to register the domain WhiteRockBeach.ca for $10,45 and it was not taken already. And the list goes on and on.

Listening to the visitors coming to White Rock Beach has inspired many of the 101+ White Rock Beach postcards & other products. Simply asking people where they come from has helped Ric learn from people’s first-hand experiences what they buy or are attracted to – by age, gender, nationality, country, etc. Ric Wallace has valuable marketing information not available to others. Also, by being a GOODWILL Ambassador for White Rock at the waterfront helps us collect valuable information; we do not get this information from the many stores that sell our products – just what has sold.

Ric Wallace has even walked all the streets in White Rock & South Surrey and has even taken the title Mr White Rock & the Postcard King– LOL.

AMAZING Sunsets, AMAZING Sunrises, AMAZING Food, AMAZING Ice Cream (see below), AMAZING Accommodations, AMAZING Weather, AMAZING Artists, AMAZING Postcards, AMAZING Greeting Cards, AMAZING Shops, AMAZING Services, an AMAZING Place to LIVE or VISIT. We are the ONLY city in Canada to have a Lucky Coin® – A local White Rock resident holds the Canadian Trademark. The movie Best of Luck had scenes filmed at the AMAZING White Rock Pier. White Rock is an AMAZING filming location. YES, if you had to use one word to describe White Rock – AMAZING would be it.

The visitors to The White Rock Beach Gallery coined the phrase AMAZING.
Ric Wallace (AKA Mr White Rock) was apparently the only one listening. He registered the domain AmazingWhiteRock.com and created the hashtag #AmazingWhiteRock.
He also registered WhiteRockBeach.ca and a few others.

WANTED: BUSINESS PARTNERS looking to
increase SALES and TOURISM at the same time.

INCREASED TOURISM = $ $ $
for your business and others!

We plan on working with one or two businesses at a time.
ASK NOT what White Rock can do for YOU, but what you can do for WHITE ROCK!

ARTographer Ric Wallace says “Thinking SMALL means Thinking BIG” with his MINI Canvas Prints

mr-whiterock-620

ARTographer Ric Wallace, also known as the Postcard King Of South Surrey and BC, is excited to be the FIRST White Rock Beach ARTIST to OFFER 8″ x 8″ mini canvas prints (he still offers his 16″ x 20″, 24″ x 48″ and 30″ x 60″ canvas prints, also 20″x 28″ acrylic prints ). These mini canvas prints are ONLY offered for sale at the waterfront Artist walk location (weather permitting) or directly from Ric Wallace – see card below.

The cost of these MINI Canvas Prints is $80 all taxes included.
Add a table top easel for $40 extra all taxes included.
FREE White Rock Beach greeting card with every
8″ x 8″ canvas print purchased at our tent at the west beach.

Invalid Displayed Gallery

These will cater to lower budgets and help fill small spaces with his ARTography. During the many times he had his tent set up at the west beach at White Rock Beach, he noticed many people were looking for photos for small spaces, such as bathrooms, gifts, or something tourists can take back home without getting broken in their luggage.  Glass framed prints in luggage will most likely get broken because of the way airlines handed your luggage.

The #WhiteRockBeach #Gallery THEN and NOW

mr-whiterock-620White Rock Beach Gallery founder ARTographer Ric Wallace shares some photos of how his galleries have evolved since spring 2015.wr-gallery-waterfrontThis was an early setup of the Now Famous White Rock Beach Gallery 2015. I had never set up one of these tents before. Things learned since then, dealing with wind from the ocean and trains. Noise of the trains, I NOW bring hearing protection. The above display stands are not practical for waterfront display use. The above setup has only one 24″ x 48″ table.

WRBG-01

The above setup summer of 2016, FIVE – 24″ x 48″ tables are used, with rubber top mats to stop things from being blown away. Tables are leveled using customized hockey pucks and wood spacers. Custom-made postcard and greeting card pockets are mounted to tables and the poles of the tent. The tent was modified to allow it to support horizontal poles on the back and left side. Sixty pounds of ankle weights on the front poles help stabilize the tent in windy conditions. On display are postcards, greeting cards, magnets, 6″ x 8″ and 8″ x 10″ prints, 16″ x 20″ canvas prints, 20″ x 28″ acrylic prints, framed prints and magnets. Magnet boards are placed on the table to help create a wall of products. Many of the products are also online for sale on WhiteRockBeach.ca. You can see an archive of some of my Instagram post photos here (BEST displayed on a computer):

WOW – a SHOE SALE at the New #Skechers Outlet in #Langley BC

skethers-01 On Sunday, October 25, 2015 we were on route to Costco in Langley BC and noticed the Sketchers Outlet was open for business. This was their second day of business at 100-19888 Langley Bypass, Langley BC V3A 4Y1skethers-02

skethers-03Sugar-toes had to stop and catch her breath when see saw all the shoes. She thought she had died and gone to heaven — SHOES EVERYWHERE — pink insoles, pink boxes.skethers-04

Lucky was LUCKY to find a pair of Skechers shoes the exact same colour and model of his worn out shoes that needed to be replaced. Skechers shoes are the BEST SHOE on the market, and Lucky convinced Sugar-toes to be a dedicated Skechers owner about 2 years ago.skethers-05 The staff was friendly and helpful and we got a few discounts. We were the first squirrels wearing glasses to shop there. Lucky first bought some Skechers over 3 years ago in the USA and will not buy anything else for his paws. With the Canadian dollar dropping in value, there is NO SAVINGS to be had going to Bellingham, WA for shoes. There is no border wait going to Langley from White Rock Beach. White Rock money is accepted at par in Langley. Lucky also gave them one of our Lucky Coins V3.0, and the store manager said she will keep it in the safe for GOOD LUCK for this new store for years to come. We wish the gang at Skechers Outlet much success. (Maybe all stores will want their own Lucky Coin – LOL)
