Part greenhouse and part craft shop, Fads & Frames stocks an abundance of supplies for DIY home decorating, gardening, and landscaping. The shop’s crafty staff fills shelves with bright ribbons, picture frames, and bins of silk flowers that attract groovy, disco-era bumblebees. A wide candle selection scents the store’s air with aromatic fruits, flowers, and spices. In the spring, a garden center blooms with annuals such as begonias, impatiens, and vinca, as well as Kimberly Queen porch ferns and Knock Out roses. While browsing blossoms, shoppers can also peruse a selection of French-inspired and rustic outdoor furniture.
Private Collection Consignment's stylists curate a fashionable assortment of well-cared-for, upscale women's clothing, shoes, and purses that changes almost daily. The store doesn't accept clothing that is more than two years old, ensuring a collection free of outdated duds such as last season’s shoulder-padded togas. Shoppers can keep their wardrobes on trend with dresses, jeans, and tops from brands such as DKNY, Vince, and Burberry. The well-organized store also routinely carries maternity and petite clothing, as well as colorful jewelry to accessorize newly assembled ensembles. Though not all the pieces in the shop are designer or couture, they are all brand-name, ensuring you won't have to spend hours sifting through piles of low-quality frocks.
The craftsmen at both Image Gallery Frame Shops pour more than 20 years of experience into each piece as they crown artwork, family photos, and precious mementos with traditional and eco-friendly mouldings. They combine these frames—many of which are harvested from managed and sustainable forests—with acid-free archival mats and conservation-quality glass to ensure memories withstand the test of time. Upon request, they can also use nonreflective museum glass to keep portraits from being startled by their own reflections.
In addition to custom framing, artisans stretch canvases, display three-dimensional objects in shadow boxes, and repair broken frames. When they aren't working in the shop, framers travel to customers' homes to assist with design needs and custom mirrors. For those with bare walls, an online gallery provides access to more than 3,300 images, which can be printed on paper or canvas and shipped for free to either shop for framing.
