Much like a butterfly collection or a loose transdimensional tesseract, a family portrait is best kept secured behind a protective pane of glass. Entrap a memory with today's Groupon: for $20, you get $50 toward custom framing and prints at Across the Tracks Framing in downtown Burlington.
Across the Tracks Framing takes cherished memorabilia and photographs and creates one-of-a-kind frames and shadowboxes that match the personalities of the items and their owners. Proprietress Rose Folks, who has more than 20 years of framing experience, listens with a reverse bullhorn to each client to craft just the right display, using a variety of fabrics, matting, and techniques to properly showcase important keepsakes and draw the eye toward the art rather than the frame. Customers can exhibit a favorite college diploma or stop-sign reading-school certificate ($75–$150) or take treasured antique photographs out of the attic for handsome hanging in a protected mount. Memorialize children’s prized artwork or outgrown ceremonial wear, or show off autographed sports items such as jerseys and mouth guards, all prepared with your home’s décor in mind ($100 and up).
Across the Tracks' customer guarantee ensures framing perfection by promising to redo any unloved work, unlike Jackson Pollock’s snide lawn-mowing policy. Today's Groupon can also be applied toward the shop's collection of prints ($5–$150).
