Just looking through the picture window at Framing & Findings, you get a sense of the scents that lie within. The woody aroma of framing samples, the floral character of jarred candles, the metallic tang of decorative statues. Sounds make an impression, too, from the rattle of hard candies to the jangle of a vintage necklace being looped around a dog's neck. The collection of decorations is perfect for adding character to homes, whether as custom frames encircling beloved photographs or a chest of drawers filling an empty corner.
Frame and Art Gallery's staff preserves keepsakes using archival framing materials in addition to conservation-clear, conservation-reflection, and museum-quality glass. Many of their moldings sell for less than $175, efficiently enclosing photographs and other valuable items.

Maxwell original paintings or purchase a pet portrait to memorialize domestic animals without constructing a shrine out of fur.

Nadeau characterizes its furniture as "with a soul" because it's true artisan work: handcrafted from wood rather than mass-produced from gasket pylons. Showcase fine china and live gerbils in a mahogany regal glass-door cabinet ($372), or in a hefty, finely trimmed narrow bookcase with drawer ($197). Or, display a new moving picture box on a bobbin leg console table ($116). Furniture comes in a myriad of stains and colors, and many pieces are one-of-a-kind. Nadeau's ever-changing inventory includes a variety of sturdy dining room tables and chairs. Prices and selection may vary due to rotating inventory, but pieces are always fully assembled and ready to welcome any tuckered torso or mound of toothbrushes.
