Specializing in the correct and conscientious care of your antiques and collectables. Always tasteful, elegant and of the highest quality.

Welcome to Broadmead Gallery & Framing

Have you ever taken an antique dress, an artifact, a treasured manuscript, or some other valuable memento to a framer, only to have it turned away with “we can’t do that here”.  Or worse, to have it accepted for framing and then ruined by improper handling? Since we started as professional framers in 1985, we have not lost or damaged a customer’s valued artwork, because we treat every piece as though it were our own, and we will never do anything that cannot be undone.

There is no such thing as an impossible framing job.

Our staff can provide unusual and ingenious solutions to the most difficult framing problems, with both the vision and the means to bring your concepts to life. We work with a wide selection of the finest quality rag mats and an unparalleled variety of moldings to choose from. We can also fashion that magnificent display case for your heirloom flintlock in such a way that Grandfather can easily remove it whenever he’s feeling nostalgic!

  • your grandmother’s doll
  • your great-grandfather’s christening dress
  • the jersey autographed by Wayne Gretzky
  • the medals your father earned in the war
  • your wedding invitation with the dried corsage
  • the portrait and collar of your beloved pet
  • the souvenirs from that special trip

Consider preserving them forever in a way in which you can always enjoy them. Left in drawers and boxes they are soon forgotten, but properly presented and hanging on the wall, they can be a joy forever, and a conversation piece when friends visit.

Change of plans

Bruce is not retiring yet…

Ok, so we”re still here. And still enjoying building innovative and artistic creations for your walls. We have created unique displays of everything from rice cakes to wedding dresses, toast to hockey sticks: those “impossible” pieces, like the ceremonial dagger with sand from Dubai, the lighted football, the 18 foot long frame, to name a few. And it”s always been the most rewarding thing to see our customer”s eyes when we”ve managed to surprise and delight you with the results. My sister De has been with me in the business from the very beginning. Her creativity and attention to detail has made us the foremost framers in the city for needlework and creative crafts. We”re the official framers for the Victoria Sampler Company and the Button & Needlework Boutique.

Now, to celebrate our continuing in the business, we invite you to come on in with a few challenges for us to frame.

Bring one piece and mention this article, and we”ll take 15% off your order.

Bring in two and, instead, we”ll frame the second piece at half price.

We look forward to seeing you soon.

Cheers, Bruce
