Thanks to Sarah for sending:
“Spotted this sign in the window of Frame Mart Gallery.. seems like they are moving? Or maybe just closing? Their website refers to losing their lease but doesn’t say where they are moving, and they ask customers to “visit us while we are still here… as our ’50 years in one location’ but closing (?) anniversary retail sale is ongoing!”
Their website says:
“While Northwest infrastructure crumbles (as the current mayor, ward representative and city council continue their push for expensive apartments and “new restaurant” gentrification & overdevelopment into the N.E., S.E., & S.W. quadrants),
Frame Mart Gallery steadfastly continues to be a one-of-a-kind, 2nd-generation-owned & operated family business rarity in the slowly eroding retail & service streetscape of Connecticut Avenue, N.W. Washington, D.C. !”
Ed. Note: If they do leave, they’ll follow the recent closings of Wake Up Little Suzie and the Artisan lamp shop.
