BEST NEW BUSINESS 2021
WALLFLOWER CUSTOM PICTURE FRAMING
802 S. Sixth St., Fort Pierce
Wallflower Custom Picture Framing took off with a bang from the very beginning.
From the time she opened the doors on March 14, “I didn’t have time to take a breath,” owner Rebecca Street said. She attributes it to the strong network of artists and others in related businesses that cheered her on and hoped for her to succeed.
“We have a thriving and supportive art community,” she said.
Word of mouth helped. So did taking her business cards to the galleries around town. She started a Facebook page before the remodeling of her space started and kept friends up to date with the latest.
Wallflower offers custom framing, with more than 500 frames in a variety of materials and colors available. Street will have prints of photographs made and have videos transferred to thumb drives or DVDs. She also will stretch canvases and stretch needlepoint work, too. Besides custom framing, Wallflower has ready-made frames and mats for those who prefer to do it themselves. Decorating the walls are paintings for sale by local artists.
Street started framing pictures when she was 18. Later, she worked for Jiffy Photo and when Jiffy closed, she bought its framing business.
“What’s really cool is that you can take a piece of art and make it feel one way or make it feel another way by the mat and frame you choose. It’s the last stop before you put it on the wall,” she said.
