Linda Johnson isn’t leaving Bedford Village, she’s just moving around the corner.
The owner of Bedford Village Frame Shop & Gallery said they’ll be packing up the store at 648 Old Post Road by July 15 and open for business in the new location at 15 Court Road later this month.
The new space, next to Small Joys, provides the same amount of square footage but the new layout will be different, said Johnson.
“It’s a really quaint space in the new building and the layout will be more pleasing,” she said. Johnson plans to continue showcasing local artists’ work and serve as a seller of the paintings and photographs she takes on consignment.
Since opening in 2007, she said she’s developed a solid framing business. Johnson creatively frames fine art, collectibles, photographs and personal mementos. On a recent day she was assembling together an old children’s Indian Guide vest, camp badges, a drumstick and a photograph of a father and son by a lake for a family keepsake.
Artistic talent runs in the family—her sons, Jason and Patrick both work in the shop with her while working as artists in their own right. Patrick Johnson is a graphic designer and his brother Jason is a painter in the style of pointillism.
You can stop by to see Johnson in her new space after July 25.
