This year has been a difficult one, but Calico Gallery, Custom Framing & Gifts in Easton is looking forward to getting people in the mood for our treasured festive holidays, which are just on our horizon.
During down time caused by COVID-19, Calico Gallery was busy rebuilding its inventory of framed Chesapeake Bay area charts and decorative Chesapeake maps by Myrna McGrath in various sizes. There is nothing like a large framed Chesapeake Bay chart to accent a family room or sunroom wall. Display where you live in the whole huge Chesapeake watershed region. The themed Chesapeake maps by Myrna McGrath illustrate wildlife or lighthouse features around the Bay.
Looking for a quality custom framing job? Look no further. Calico Gallery has competitive pricing, excellent quality and a great selection. Calico Gallery has a large selection of framed Chesapeake Bay art pieces, too, including Aubrey Bodine. Why not spruce up your décor? Or, buy now for a holiday gift. For the remainder of this year, select any of these great pieces framed at a conservation level, for free, with the purchase of another piece at equivalent or greater discounted price. Buy one for yourself and one for a friend.
Other gift ideas include puzzles, potpourris, and greeting cards. Calico Gallery carries 3-D Santoro Swing cards from London and Pop-shot cards for all occasions. Want to laugh? There is a large selection of “New Yorker” cards. Calico still carries note cards featuring John Moll and other artists, too.
Many of the non-commercial gift items in stock are artisan created woven art by Heidi Wetzel and fascinating jewelry created from Glass and Wildfire by Sharon Stockley. During the quiet time of quarantine, Calico shed the “Toys & Games” business via several yard sales in September and repurposed most of its space to give customers an open and easy way to see the craftsmanship and products of some of the resident artists.
Calico Gallery, Custom Framing & Gifts, is located at 125 Kemp Lane in Easton. As always, there is plenty of free off-street parking. Hours are as follows: Wednesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and by appointment, especially for custom framing. For more information, call Brad Fout at 410-310-5070.
