The Framers Market & Gallery
The mission of The Framers Market & Gallery is to save memories one frame at a time. Vickie feels lucky to be in a profession that brings so much joy.
There’s no better feeling than seeing the look of delight on a client’s face when they see their finished project for the first time, she said. There may even be a tear or two shed when the piece evokes a powerful memory.
What difference does a picture frame make? Ask Vickie about this and you’ll learn that it makes a great deal of difference. Picture framing is both an art and a craft. People think first of the aesthetics of a frame in the same way they appreciate the design of a car. But knowledge of materials and craftsmanship to put that all together is equally important. Of what value is a beautiful car if the engine isn’t reliable? Similarly, the quality of the materials and methods used to put everything together in a frame can mean the difference between lasting for a few months or for generations.
