Framed by Kosal's archivists comb a vast inventory of conservation materials to retrieve mats and mouldings that best showcase each client's valuables. By giving special attention to each custom framing order, the archivists carry on a tradition that began when the shop first began preserving artwork, keepsakes, and entire refrigerator doors. From in-store to at-home consultations, staff members guide customers toward the framing materials that optimize beauty and longevity. In addition to framing, Framed by Kosal's specialists offer photo restoration and large-format photo printing, and stock the store with a wide selection of art.
The proprietor of Say It In Thread began sewing at the age of 13, eventually graduating from the famed Fashion Institute of Technology. But it wasn't until she became a mom herself that she figured out how to support her little family with what she loved to do. In 1989, she began by embroidering baby gifts. Today, she crafts custom gifts, from pattern to hemming, embroidering each one to make it one of a kind. Customers can choose from a range of gifts, robes and towels, laundry bags and duffel bags, and throws and baby blankets. Each one is personalized with bright-colored thread, with the recipient's initials or name, and even a clever graphic such as baseballs for the sports fan, flowers for a gardener, or an adding machine for someone who likes things that tick.
Studio Art supplies the media and the instruction for customizing everything from canvases and pottery to skateboards and sneakers.

Mirrors, moccasins, and belt buckles dress up in an arsenal of paints, glitters, jewels, and trinkets according to creative whims or the demands of the preschool fashion scene. Classes hone specific skills such as sewing and fashion design, and teen night occupies adolescents with henna, beading, and scrapbooking in an informal setting.
