Shop closed this week

Hello everybody, just thought I’d remind you that the shop will be closed this week as I can no longer avoid having to spend time with the family!

The shop will reopen on Saturday the 10th and we’ll be firing on all cylinders as soon as possible.

Thanks as always for your loyal support

Shop closure

I’m really sorry to say that the shop has had to closed for the last couple of days.

I have been suffering with vertigo since Saturday night and though feel I am getting slowly (very slowly!) better, I am still in no fit shape to drive into work and man the fort.

I don’t take this decision lightly, but in this case I have no choice.

Phil will be in as usual on Thursday and Friday so if you have work to collect or drop off those days will be fine. I think that work already in with me will be delayed. As soon as i’m fit I’ll be in to resume battle and I’ll make up for lost time as quickly as possible.

once again I ask for your understanding and patience, and any remedies or tips for getting rid of vertigo would be greatly received…as long as they don’t involve roundabouts or cross channel ferries!

See you soon

Happy new year everyone!

Just thought I’d take a moment to wish everyone a happy new year and also say a big thank you for a great 2018!

The end of the year was busy, the usual Christmas rush, but also some other spanners thrown into the works. But that’s life and it keeps moving forward. I took the opportunity to close the shop over the festive period and enjoyed time off with the family which was fantastic and we’re now back up running and firing on all cylinders!

The heavy workload at this time of year means that lead times are a little longer than usual, although Phil and I are working our socks off to ensure everything is completed as quickly as possible.

Thanks again

See you soon

Closure due to the snow...again!

The shop will again be closed today due to bad weather.


I will get across as soon as possible but obviously the disruption may now effect the collection date for this weeks work. 

I will call everyone individually as soon as your work is completed and ready to collect.


Have a good day, and stay safe (and warm!)




Closure due to the snow

Good morning all,


Just to let you know that the shop will be closed this morning and probably the rest of the day due to the snow.


I will continue to monitor the weather and get across to the shop as soon as possible to resume the work for this week.


Thanks for your understanding




Pete's annual blog!

Well hello again!

It's been a whole year since my last blog post, and i'd suggested that I'd try to update the blog more often. Clearly I have failed at this! But hopefully we haven't failed at delivering for our customers on the framing front.

It has been another busy year, thank you all, and an especially busy end to 2017. We managed to complete all our Christmas orders (and then some) on time, and feel like we can start 2018 with a virtually clean slate...sorry Andrew, I still haven't got round to framing your rugby shirt!

I plan on taking a couple of weeks off over Christmas and the new year, to spend some quality time with the family. After a couple of weeks of that I'll be itching to get into the sanctuary of the shop! 

So this means the shop will officially reopen on the January 6th 2018 with the next collection date being the 13th of January depending on the workload.

In the meantime, thanks to all our customers for continuing to support our small family business and make it the shop that it is. Have a fantastic Christmas and New Year and we'll see you in 2018.

Pete and Team

Hello again!

Thought I'd better update the blog as I was still wishing everyone a merry Christmas and informing you that the shop will be closed until January 2017!

It's been a busy old time in the shop, so Georgina, Phill and myself have been working hard to ensure we deliver the high level of service we expect of the shop. Thanks to all our customers old and new for keeping us on our toes!

I will endeavour to update the blog more often and the website in general, as it's too easy to let drift beneath the framing work load.

In theory I'll be in the shop in the hours of daylight during the summer holidays (and less often like a nocturnal framing gnome). Fast Phil will be in there as usual on Thursdays and Fridays.

Thanks for your custom and ongoing support

Merry Christmas everybody!

Thank you all so much for your ongoing support and custom. 2016 has been a busy year in the shop but also great fun. It's been a real pleasure working with customers old and new.

The shop will now be shut until 10am on Saturday 31st January. All my suppliers have closed now until the new year, so I will also take this opportunity to have a break and recharge the batteries ready to go again in 2017!

In the meantime have a fabulous Christmas and a wonderful New Year.

Busy times in the shop

The shop has been busy this year, hence why I haven't updated the blog as often as I'd like!

The reindeer on the windows of the shop must mean Christmas isn't all that far away, so to avoid the rush make sure you get work in as early as possible. I will still try to turn work around as quickly as possible, but there will be a cut off date for work guaranteed to be done for Christmas. This will probably be around mid December as I have to allow for deliveries of moulding etc.

Thanks for all your custom and support this year,


Saturday Shop Closure

The Frame Shop will be closed for one day only on Saturday the 27th of August.

I will be attending the wedding of a close friend and have been unable to find suitable cover that will provide the usual high standards of customer care and service.

I hope you understand this decision, one I have not taken lightly, and I will endeavour to complete all work as normal.

Sorry for any inconvenience caused,

New Neighbours!

Some of you will already have visited Maud's House, the new lifestyle and gift shop newly opened opposite The Frame Shop. If you haven't its well worth a look. 

A very smart and modern shop filled with lots of cool goodies, and Hattie is lovely as well!

The High Corn Mill will doubtless benefit from a new retail shop situated within in as it will add variety and more options to somewhere that already offers so much in it's own corner of Skipton. So now you can get that old map framed at The Frame Shop, buy a new dining table and chairs at The Home Company, get a fathers day card and gift from Maud's House, before booking Georgina Brewster to photograph your wedding! If that all sounds too much, you could always take a break at one of the many eateries in the area...and then burn the cake and coffee off with a pilates session

See you soon 



Revised opening times



TUE: 10-3PM

WED: 10-3PM

THUR: 10-5PM

I hope the new times work for everyone. If you have any special requests for dropping work off or collecting please do not hesitate to contact me via phone or email.


Brian Hindmarch editions

Visit his website to see some examples of his atmospheric work, evoking thoughts of the wild landscape around us.

The Ultimate Fathers Day Present

Have a look at what Al specialises in!

Just bring in a photo and Al will do the rest. Your picture will be completed and framed all under one roof at The Frame Shop Skipton.
