New walls, new floors, new counters, new lighting, new frames, new energy. ←Please continue reading despite the fact that my opening sentence was a fragment. Well, it has been a long time coming, but Paradise Picture Frame–our store on the corner of Thunderbird and Tatum–has gotten a much-needed facelift this month. Do people still say facelift? Is that still a thing, or are we strictly calling it plastic surgery now? Anyone?

It has been amazing and sometimes frightening (hello, irrational fear of ladders) to see our stellar sales staff and framers navigate the surrounding demolition rejuvenation to perform their creative magic on your artwork. Because you guys, closing down during construction is for amateurs. That’s right Starbucks down the road, I’m talking to you. You couldn’t even keep the drive-thru window open for us? I mean… a little drywall dust in the ol’ morning latte never killed anyone. I think.  #science

 

Oh and just to be clear, zero construction took place in our warehouse or framing production rooms. And no artwork was harmed in the process, in case you were concerned. You totally were. Admit it.

So I know you’re expecting some sort of shameless advertising right about now. Some “come on down! We have hot dogs and balloons and cookies” type of bribery. Mmm…cookies. But really, how did a free hot dog become the symbol of open houses, (open homes? no—definitely open houses) and business re-openings everywhere? Just asking the question. I mean no offense, Oscar Meyer.

Seriously though, stop by and check out our new look. Will it change the quality framing you’ve come to trust here at the Hall of Frames? Nope. But don’t we all feel better when we look better? Yes, we do. And don’t we have a new excitement and energy when we feel better? Absolutely. And don’t we… Okay, I’ll stop now.

In all sincerity, we look forward to serving you with the excellence that we have done for the last 40 years—only now in prettier surroundings. We echo the great poet Robert Browning in feeling that here at the Hall of Frames  “…the best is yet to be!” And with that said, onto some glamour shots of our new space.
