DS Advent Calendar, Day 12: Picture frame moulds

Happy Monday, and welcome to Day 12 of the DS Advent Calendar. To mark the halfway point to Christmas, here’s a totally unique gift from our store: Picture frame moulds.

The story: many years ago we got a call from a man who’s father had passed away, leaving a garage full of these moulds – all made by hand and individually numbered. His father was a picture frame maker, and these moulds were for the decorative ornament bits on the frames. We bought the whole lot, and every so often we dig out a new batch, clean them up, and put them out for sale. Each one is a one-of-a-kind, so it’s a lot of fun for us to unearth them. They’re graphic, rustic, and industrial all in one, and they look amazing on their own or in a big grouping. Picture frame moulds $35 and up.
