Well, it's been a little over a year since we reopened, and we can not thank all you you enough for your support and patience through this difficult time. We experienced some growing pains this past year, and one important fact came to our attention.
People still do not know we are under new ownership. If you think of it, would you tell a friend about us? Word of mouth and satisfied customers are our most important form of advertising.
If you tell someone about us, be sure to remind them to tell our sales staff you sent them, by full name, and we will give them 10 percent off, and give you a $25 gift certificate for the referral!
Check out the latest black and silver laquer frames! This hot new collection designed by Jonathan Adler for Larson-Juhl just arrived yesterday in time for the holidays. Check out the image at the top of this email.
A matching laquered gloss white set is coming along too, but has been delayed for now. To see some more of the newest collections that we have, click here Larson-Juhl.

In case you missed our past emails, a little history as to how we left 501 Main Street and came to 502 Main Street.
The year 2011 was an incredible experience for us. After multiple extreme snowstorms left many feet of snow on roofs across the state, the freezing rain and ice storm on the morning of Feb. 2 took down the roof and third floor of the building our store was in.
Although no direct damage was done to our shop, because of safety concerns we were only allowed a few hours to get what we could...and as a result lost almost everything. Luckily as fate would have it, Chiarappa Jewelers, directly across the street, was just ending a long career serving Middletown, and we were able to take what we could save there to begin the process of rebuilding.
Seven months and a near complete renovation later, we opened our doors again, and have been enjoying a different view of Main Street since!
- Don't forget, Santa is coming! Place your order for Christmas early so we have plenty of time to finish it! Old restored and framed family pictures are the perfect gift for that person you don't know what to get!
We hope to see you soon and thank you for your support over these years.
Rusa, Nikolai and Dmitri
