West Seattle businesses: Museum Quality Framing closing

We took that photo tonight after Judy forwarded us the e-mail she received about the upcoming closure of Museum Quality Framing in the Admiral District (2352 California SW). Though the sign says it’s “moving,” the e-mail announcement says the store is “closing” and invites customers to patronize a South Lake Union location after this one closes January 27th. This will leave West Seattle with at least four framing stores by our unofficial count – Artistic Framers, Northwest Art and Frame, U-Frame-It, and Wallflower Custom Framing. (P.S. Yes, the store that’s closing is the same one a car drove into last May.)

    That’s sad. A great little frame shop! Admiral will miss them.

    While it is never good for a business to close…I am just as happy to see the small operations flourish, Wallflower Custom Framing is terrific. Courtney just framed two pieces for us and they look GREAT. The price was about 30% below what I was expecting to have to pay.

    I also hate to see businesses close, but I must say their customer service was so poor, I never went back after my first visit and I was dealing with owner…

    Sorry you had a bad experience. We’ve had numerous frames done by them and were always extremely happy. To the point of recommending them to friends and family.

    Don’t forget about Mel Neville and his Dunville Gallery at 9025 35th SW Ave! It’s across from Tony’s outdoor market (may Tony rest in peace). Mel has done plenty of quality framework for our family over the years.

    I’ve got to echo the plug for Wallflower Custom Framing.

    We’ve had 5 separate pieces done by Courtney now and they are fantastic, quick and cheaper than expected!

    Wallflower costed less than expected? I about had a heart attack when I went in to get something priced. It was a minimum 250$ less from the 3 other quotes I got around WS.
