SHARON — Brian Wilcox loves travel. He loves photography too. Now the 35-year-old caretaker is combining the two in a new home-based business, Wilcox Photo Greetings. One day not long ago he asked himself what he was going to do with his thousands of photographs. His dream was to make fine art prints, but he knew people wouldn’t want to spend $175 on a 14 by 16-inch print. He realized people would be willing to pay just under $3 for a laminated card, which he signs on the back after his wife writes down where the photo was taken, and markets the cards at area businesses such as Paley’s Market, the Audubon Center and craft fairs. He is also looking for photo assignments. Recently a fellow asked him to photograph his goats for a greeting card. He obliged with pleasure.
Area residents know Sal Sanchez best as the amiable waiter with the Spanish accent from the White Hart Inn. Mr. Sanchez has indeed made his living all over the world by attending to the dining needs of others, but this skill hides other, no less formidable, talents. Sanchez left the White Hart this week to pursue those other talents and will soon be selling his own brand of largely organic foods under the label Earth Foods. Mr. Sanchez and his wife and partner, Duffy Sanchez, are in the process of purchasing and renovating the former Marina Restaurant in Hudson, N.Y., a facility they will convert into a large commercial kitchen with an adjacent deli.
