When Tim Haines
purchased the Mohawk Building on Central Parkway in 2012, he understood that he
would probably need to sort through some abandoned items in the space,
particularly leftover stock in the old Castner Picture Frame Company
warehouse. But he was surprised to find hundreds of thousands of vintage frames
and equipment left behind. Now, he and close friend Janet Baltzersen are
working to clear the space, selling these rare gems (many of which date back to
the 1920s) for next to nothing. This Sunday, they will host and open house sale
in the warehouse from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. Come dressed appropriately (some rooting
around is required and much of the stock has been untouched for decades,
resulting in quite a bit of dust) — Baltzersen will provide gloves and masks
plus cocktails and snacks. Artists, antiquers and vintage-lovers will find a
huge variety of shapes, styles and sizes of frames like small ovals, large rustic
circles, gesso and antique gold finishes. The
warehouse is located on the south end of the building at 2145 Central Parkway.
For more information or to schedule a private viewing, contact Baltzersen at firstname.lastname@example.org. Read our full story here.

The shopping experience is as unique as
the products on the shelves. Customers make their way up the warehouse
stairs and are greeted by Baltzersen and her team, who liberally
distribute gloves and masks to combat the layers of dust customers
encounter while searching for the perfect size and shape frame.
Customers are also treated to light refreshments, including a choice of
wine to “help you shop,” according to one assistant
