Experienced craftsmen outfit beloved images with frames that extend their lifespan inside the fully equipped shop and studio. Acid-free mat boards preserve colors and picture quality, and museum-quality glass helps sneak paintings or photographs into charity galas at the Louvre. The store also curates a selection of preassembled frames around works by Texan artists including G. Harvey, Andy Thomas, and Gary Crouch. Original pieces of artwork by Katy watercolorist Susan Thiele explore the beauty of natural subjects such as farm animals, flamingos, or landscapes filled with flowers.
The Shelton family applies more than 100 years' experience in the dry-cleaning business to swiftly cleanse clients’ garments at each of their locations’ in-house plants. Drop off any garment—from a blazer for work to coveralls for a live reenactment of American Gothic,—before 9 a.m. for same-day pickup after 5 p.m., or lollygag until 10 a.m. for next-day service. The reliable cleaners’ inspection department ensures that dry-cleaned clothes come back looking as crisp as a deep-fried cummerbund, and its gentle solvents, up-to-date equipment, and thoughtful recycling policies help steward the environment. In addition to its dry-cleaning services, Shelton Family Cleaners also provides regular laundry services, specialized wedding gown cleanings, alterations, and repairs.
Ceramics by Tess's sunny studio welcomes adults and children to craft one-of-a-kind creations in a fun, supportive environment. Against a lilac wall in the warmly lit entryway, more than 6,000 ceramics await creative types to emblazon their utilitarian canvases in paint-your-own pottery sessions. A rainbow of acrylic paints and shiny glazes transforms the blank objects into original works of art, from a coffee mug emblazoned with World's Best Third Cousin Twice Removed to a piggybank filled with glazed dollar bills.
The studio also proffers hands-on, all-inclusive classes, which guide groups through the shaping of a single item, such as a bird molded from a lump of clay. Children as young as 3 may participate in some classes, and adults take over the shop Thursday evenings from 7 p.m. onward, sipping BYOB drinks and crafting more complex structures, such as life-size replicas of the Great Wall of China.
