As a small business we know the challenge when it comes to exposure and finding new customers. We have been extremely lucky in the past 40 years finding customers who have stuck with us and continue to purchase our American Made picture frames. To give back for the past four years we have been highlighting small businesses in the best way we know how: by sending them a 5×7 Decorate It Frame and letting them show us their talents using it! When you’re looking for gifts this year, consider shopping small and purchasing from one of these fantastic places.
