What makes us different is the fantastic amount of help advice we give to our customers to ensure they select the right picture frame for their artwork.
It’s important because people don’t realize the massive number of choices available to them.
Sharmaine Guthrie has owned Opal Picture Frames since 2006.
The members of staff she has working with her have over 30 years framing and art experience.
