A Barrack’s Row business will celebrate 33 years of business in their new location this Friday.
Custom frame shop Frame of Mine is set to throw a grand reopening party on Friday at their new location in the former Playseum space at 545 8th St. SE. The store, which has been on Barracks Row for 33 years, moved across the street earlier this month from its former location at 522 8th St. SE.
Though the new location has been open for several weeks, customers will have a chance to officially welcome the store to its new location at Friday’s party, which will feature complimentary wine and cheese and a silent auction of framed art. Half of the proceeds from the art auction will go to Capitol Hill Arts Workshop, a non-profit that supports arts education around Capitol Hill.
Retail Manager D.J. Case said that a lot of the art in the auction are things that the store framed but were never picked up.
“You wouldn’t think people would forget things but they do. Or they don’t come back for whatever reason,” he said. “Over the years we’ve collected quite a pile of stuff.”
The grand reopening party will also mark the beginning of a week-long, 25%-off anniversary sale at the store to celebrate 33 years in business.
