Matted store in Long Island City

Though retail may seem like an afterthought at this concept shop (which is both a gallery and a custom-framing/gift shop) there’s plenty of things to spend dough on. Owner Donna Drimer fills the space with contemporary art from local painters and photographers (for six-week exhibits), allowing her to show off the store’s vast selection of framing supplies. In addition to earthy, handmade goods (pottery, glassware, wooden boxes, soaps and our favorite, a wallet fashioned from recycled candy wrappers, $25–$38), you can snag quirkier items, such as Jishaku ($22), a board game involving magnetic stones.

A must for folks decorating their new LIC digs and those wanting to add creative flair to their longtime homes. Bonus: the gallery aspect brings neighbors together to see each other's art and to be introduced to new visions!

The most wonderful art gallery-frame emporium-gift boutique-NY fashion destination. Beautiful environment, incredible service and guidance by owner and connoisseur, Donna. She has an amazing eye and impeccable taste. This place is a MUST-Lust shop!
