For Books Inc., it's been a long road, and if you trace the lines back to its origins, it's California's oldest bookstore. After striking gold?literally?back in 1851, Anton Roman set up shop as a bookseller. Although the shop moved, was sold, burned down, changed hands again, and was rebuilt, the spirit remained intact, and today, multiple locations of the indie bookstore have sprouted up across The Golden State. Staff members keep the shelves lined with classic and contemporary tomes in all genres, and a myriad of book clubs help keep the love of literature alive. They also run a vibrant event program featuring author events and readings where patrons can enjoy an experience they can't download.

Since the shop opened in 1974, Frame-O-Rama's team has mastered all sorts of techniques to preserve family photos, works of art, and other frame-able objects. "We've framed ceremonial objects such as christening gowns and shoes, and African walking sticks. My personal favorite was a signed Willie Mays baseball with a signed and mounted print of him playing stickball back in Brooklyn," Frame-O-Rama manager Matt Miller said in an interview with SFGate.

See below for more details on their various techniques.

  • Closed-Corner Handcrafted Frames: Closed-corner frames are Frame-O-Rama's specialty, as the staff makes the frame moulding out of hardwood or gold and silver. They do everything by hand, including carving wood or leafing metal.
  • Leather-Wrapped Moulding: These frames arrive from Peru—Frame-O-Rama's team adds custom touches, such as stitches or cowboy buckles.
  • Shadow Boxes: Pretty much anything that doesn't require refrigeration or frequent human contact can go in one of Frame-O-Rama's shadow boxes. Framing bugs, sports jerseys, and wedding bouquets are just a few possibilities
  • Matting and glass: Frame-O-Rama uses museum-quality materials, including UV-blocking glass and matting wrapped in all sorts of materials, such as linen or velvet.

When Kit Morse took a sewing class in high school, she was certain never would again?she hated everything about sewing, especially the sewing part. But when her near-and-dear baby blanket needed mending, Morse took up a needle and thread. When she started making something beautiful to be proud of, she saw the art form in a whole new light, and fell in love with the hobby's meditative nature.

Morse opened Always Quilting & Sewing Center to create a sanctuary for people who shared a love of the craft?where they could take classes, share wisdom, and stock up on necessary tools. The vast inventory includes everything from batik fabrics to thimbles and even completed quilts.
