Update - 10th January 2020


Open air markets are now unable to continue for non-essential retail. Our shop is closed to general walk-ins, however appointments can be made and safe measures are in place for collections of artwork or frames. 

Our website is operating as normal and our workshop and deliveries continue to be shipped as next day. 

Update - 3rd June 2020

Open air markets are now able to resume with social distancing measures in place. We will be returning to Northallerton market initially from Wednesday 3rd June 2020 and the following Saturdays and Wednesdays whilst the market operators feel it is safe to do so. Please note, at this time we are still NOT attending Wetherby Market.

Our shop also re-opens from 3rd June 2020 with social distancing in place, we have built a screen above our counter so that this is safe. We ask the only one household is in the shop at a time, so if you arrive and see other customers in the shop we ask you to patiently wait in your car until its clear. 


Update - 24th March 2020.

As per recent government guidelines we have now closed our shop in Tadcaster. However we are still accepting orders online and telephone and will be processing these as normal.

If we currently have a frame you were due to collect, we’re happy to hold this for you until we open as normal again. If you require it urgently please call us and we will arrange a safe way to get this to you. 

We encourage people not to come to the shop and would be more than happy to help over the phone or via email.

Currently our couriers are operating as normal.

Our website has a wide range of standard and made to measure sizes to fit your requirements.

If you require pictures framing urgently, please call or email us and we can try and accommodate the best we can at this time. 

We have also enabled a Gift Card option on our website, if you were planning to get a picture framed for someone as a gift, you could buy them a gift card instead that they can redeem in our shop when we re-open or on our website immediately.


Our Wednesday and Saturday Northallerton Market and Thursday Wetherby Market has been cancelled until further notice. If you were due to collect a frame from us at one of these, please call or email us and we will arrange alternatives. 

We thank you for understanding and look forward to seeing all our customers in the near future.

As a small family run business we’re currently staying open as normal at this time. We’re taking extra precautions and measures to ensure we lower the risk for our customers who may be concerned.

We’re disinfecting and cleaning our shop, materials and equipment thoroughly through-out the day and in-between customer visits. If you do turn up to our shop and feel it’s busy, we welcome you to wait in your car until the shop is free.

Our Market days are still continuing as normal until we’re advised otherwise. We will be at Northallerton on Saturdays and Wednesdays as normal and Wetherby on Thursdays. As with our shop we will be cleaning and ensuring any of our stuff that's touched regularly is cleaned and disinfected.

We also welcome you to order on our website or phone where we can courier customer frames to you.
