More than 25 years ago, David D. Moon established the Sam Moon Trading Co. as a wholesaler of general merchandise and fashionable handbags. Though years have passed, its philosophy has only slightly evolved—it now deals in ladies’ fashion, accessories, and home decor but maintains its commitment to wholesale pricing. Its racks support handbags from leading designers like Misha and Nicole Lee, available in fun styles such as rosette mini bags and totes. Accessories range from aviator sunglasses to scarves, and jewelry includes Geneva watches, silver and turquoise bracelets, and pearl necklace sets that shimmer like a freshly polished flashlight.
Blooming from a family-run arts-and-crafts business more than a quarter century ago, Woodland Art & Frame now focuses on accentuating masterpieces with complementary borders. Aside from performing traditional services, such as dry-mounting posters and retouching oil paintings, certified framers enlist a virtual framer program to help patrons visualize their artwork in different mattes, frames, and ’80s hairstyles before finalizing selections. Framers also transform flat-screen TVs into functional artwork by crafting screen-hugging frames, and sometimes visit homes or offices to assess aesthetic needs.
With thousands of frame and mat samples, The Great Frame Up can satisfy any and all framing fantasies. The expert framespeople can make diplomas radiate (most diplomas can be framed for around $100–$200), personalized jerseys glisten (most for less than $300), and dorm-room movie posters sparkle (many 24" x 36" pieces are less than $100). The design wizards can also find a home for any prized possession, such as shoebox photos, baby booties, ticket stubs, medals, and really good pot roasts. The Great Frame Up’s no-hassle guarantee and assurance that all work is done on-site means your frameables won't be subject to mistreatment at underground commercial framing facilities.
