BIZNOTE: Wallflower announces it’s closing this summer

Wallflower Custom Framing in The Junction will close when its lease ends this summer, its proprietor has announced:

With a heavy heart, I am announcing that after ten years in West Seattle, Wallflower will not renew its lease this year, and the shop will close at the end of June.

I am so grateful to every one of you who has had something (many things!) custom framed, purchased a photoframe, or collected a piece of art. This community is unbelievably supportive of its small businesses and I can’t ever thank you enough. I’ve been truly humbled by the success of this little store, and I’ve sincerely enjoyed getting to know all of you through your art, through conversation, through ArtWalk, or just walking by tossing a wave…you will all be sorely missed. I will be framing like mad right up until mid-June, and all custom framing will be 15% off as a final thank you. Photoframes, mirrors, and framed art for sale in the shop will be 50% off.

All my gratitude,
Courtney, Owner, Wallflower Custom Framing

Wallflower opened in the then-new Mural mixed-use building at 4735 42nd SW in 2009.

    Oh no! They gave me a fantastic matte and frame for a really unusual midcentury painting, and even liked the quirky thing, which most people thought I was crazy to buy. I’ll have to get in there before they close for something else–honestly, the best art framing I’ve ever had!

    Oh no indeed!  I had two pieces framed here and they always did a great job.  Oh that stinks.  :(

    Courtney, you are the best frame shop around!  I need to buy some more art before you close.  Wish you all the best!

    Almost everything in our house has been framed by Courtney. She is the best around! This is a huge loss for West Seattle. Thanks for all of your help over the years, Courtney!

    Sad to see it go. How expensive is it to lease a shop space in junction these days?

    U Frame It in Jefferson Square is terrific and highly recommended. We’ve gone there for years.

    Courtney is awesome!  I’m gathering up everything in my home to make sure she can do it before she closes!

Sorry, comment time is over.
