Whether you're wrapping a rectangle around your favorite still-shot or hunting for a specific tool or tint, Rainy Day's friendly, enthusiastic staff will happily assist in your artistic endeavors. The shop carries anything from Fun with Rock Painting kits ($9.95) to the Unemployed Philosophers Guild's Obamarama magnetic dress-up playsets ($12.99), as well as essentials for the established or aspiring artist, such as Prismacolor pencils ($19.31 for set of 12) and Crayola Ultimate Art Supplies sets ($21.19). On the custom framing side, the resident framesperts are equipped with a bounty of beautiful and inventive frames for a wide range of sizes. Though the pricing for elements varies just as much as their framed-in contents, framing averages around $15 to $25 per foot and around $145 total, depending on the glass, matting, and other options.
