Change is good. However, it requires learning new things, new ways, new routines. New used to be so great.
For the past 15 years I have used this local frame shop for everything. From matting student work for various reasons to restoring a family heirloom painting. The prices were so reasonable. It cost less than doing it myself! This frame shop owner knew all the requirements for the local contests. We didn't even have to talk about it.
You can imagine my dismay when I drove by and saw huge signs in the windows that said Framing orders no longer being taken. I popped in and she was giving away all the leftover matboard. The high end art supplies all 50 percent off along with the beautiful greeting cards, jewelry and more.
Free & low cost supplies - Yeah! No more frame shop - Boo!
