We have a confession to make. Here at I've Been Framed we are quirky. We do things differently and we may even operate a little old fashioned. However, we have come a long way and have done our best to figure out what works and what doesn't, all by trial and error. I wanted to reserve our first blog post to extend our gratitude. We absolutely would not have been around as long as we have, or become who we are without the amazing customers who've carried us this far. It’s truly because of your love that we are starting to become A REAL ART STORE. We are kind of like the Velveteen Rabbit in a way. We've been around for a very long time, longing to flourish and win the hearts of every artist that steps foot in the store while staying true to ourselves. We genuinely love the art supply world and the people that surround and support it.
I remember the days when we only dreamed of having a real website. It was always a little embarrassing when ours was the only business in the area listed without one. Finally, because of your love, loyalty, and continued support, we've made it to another amazing milestone.
This Velveteen Art store finally has a website. Phew!

“Real isn't how you are made,' said the Skin Horse. 'It's a thing that happens to you. When a child loves you for a long, long time, not just to play with, but REALLY loves you, then you become Real.'
