THANK YOU PICTURE FRAMING CLIENTS FOR YOUR SUPPORT.

When we opened the shop in 2010 we decided to do both picture framing and chair caning because we had no idea the amount of chair business we were in for!  We thought the chairs would be a corner of the shop in the form of a resident artist.    For four years we have been playing musical chairs and the picture framing business has been a nice distraction. Well, it is time to focus on chairs and spread chair nerdery to the world!
