The Outlet Cellar

Nestled in the stone basement of our historic Dexter shop is one of the best kept secrets of D.I.Y. framers of Southeast Michigan! Only opened to the public in August 2011, the Outlet Cellar is a framing treasure trove.

In the Outlet Cellar, you will find an ever-changing selection of highly discounted:

  • frames of standard and non-standard sizes, ranging from 4x4" to 24x30"… (currently over 500)
  • gorgeous mouldings that would normally be out-of-range for many customers
  • framing tools and equipment
  • foamcore
  • mats
  • original artwork
  • poster-sized reproductions
  • nifty odds and ends
  • packing supplies

How Are We Able to Do This?
Two busy retail shops and two high-volume online stores inevitably generate some miscalculations, inventory overruns and returns. The fact that we assemble the majority of all frames in-house also means at some point we come to the remainder of a beautiful moulding. What to do with that last little bit? Make a small frame, of course! The Outlet Cellar helps us manage the surplus and allows savvy frame seekers to buy distinctive frames at up to 90% off. Win-win!

Art teachers, crafters, apartment renters and homeowners have been quietly visiting the Outlet Cellar since this Summer. Come join us! We suggest you bring a list of your unframed art and photos, so you can take full advantage of all the framing potential…Stock is constantly changing and Outlet Cellar framing supplies are not available through our online store.
