Autumn Returns

After Labor Day there are those that are thrilled to return once again to the routine that the Fall season brings, or there are those who revel in the memories of the unstructured Summer days just past. At Frantic Framers we belong to both camps. The month of August was a bustling month for us. We allowed ourselves to close on Mondays in July and August, and now we are open again. Today, our first Monday back, brought in many friends from the past. Kim Weineck dropped by to say hello and pick up a few art supplies. Kim, a former employee, is also a very talented artist and teacher ( Her amazing pastels continue to inspire us in many ways and encourage those of us inclined to create. A long-time customer and friend, Michael Moss (a local fine artist) also came by, up from his summer studio in Provincetown. Michael’s vivid color palette is always a delight to view ( Dottie Merrill came by with her lovely water-lily painting (a tribute to Monet) to be framed for a dear friend of hers. Dottie has taken art classes with Edwina Caci for many years, and has framed a lot of her wonderful work with us. Christine Schoettle, another fantastic local artist, came in to have several commissioned house portraits framed. Check out her work on or Etsy:

With the return of the Fall season, so too do the art supply lists return for high school and college students. Frantic Framers is always fully stocked with all the needs of students and professionals alike. And we can also special order any item you will need for your project or assignment. Please note that we have many items still left from our “End of Summer Yard Sale”, so come on in and check out what we have in stock.

We are also looking forward to seeing all of your summer vacation photos and art pieces ready and waiting to be framed! We are now open 6 days a week, Monday through Saturday – with extended hours on Thursday evening. See you soon!
