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.
Dedicated to craftsmanship, creativity, and conservation-quality materials, the framing experts at Picture Frame Warehouse protect the integrity of portraits and paintings with acid-free mats and UV-blocking glass. In addition to ready-made frames, the shop stocks more than 1,500 custom mouldings, with designs to complement any diploma or certificate of lunar land ownership. Most framing jobs are completed within one week, allowing patrons just enough time to peruse the store’s entire collection of photo frames and oil paintings.
For 50 years, the owners and staffers of Plaza Artist Materials & Picture Framing have encouraged the artists of their community. They visit local fairs and set up booths for kids to color and craft, and they do workshops, demos, and classes for artists of every age. As their name implies, they also outfit art makers of all skill levels with top-of-the-line materials, such as Gamblin oil paints, Prismacolor pens and markers, and custom frames perfect for saving favorite art pieces or memorializing a sibling's failure to color within the lines.
More than 20 years in the film industry taught Kimberly Manz how to master most types of cameras, and she's honed her skills by spending about 10 years as a professional photographer. With so much experience and a love for meeting new people, Kimberly couldn't keep all that knowledge to herself. So for the past 5 years, she has shared this expertise by running classes that show students how to set their DSLR cameras for various types of photography. She also snaps shots for family portraits, weddings, and ads.
