Most of our photo frames are upgraded with MUSEUM GLASS, featuring 99% protection (the highest available) from harmful UV light, as well as an anti-reflective, virtually invisible finish, for amazing clarity. The readymade frames found in the big box stores do not come close to this quality.  Our photo frames, featuring state-of-the-art museum glass, allow you to enjoy the finer details of your photos for years to come.  Don't let your memories fade away.


We also carry a unique selection of those hard-to-find decorative tabletop easels for displaying your small framed art, plates, calendars or other small treasures.

FLOATING FRAMES . . . “Hang Once, Add Art, Change Often”

We carry Wexel Art floating display frames made with clear polished acrylic and silver (other metal finishes available) wall mounts.  Small impressively strong magnets pair-up on front and back to hold your art in place, allowing you to change out your art often.  Create a room that transitions with your child or display a collage of small photo prints.  The look is bold, sophisticated and fun! They could even add style and sophistication to that wall full of business licenses that many offices have.


The Frame Shop at Lakeside offers a variety of fine art note cards by local artists capturing local Nevada and Tahoe scenes.  Also available are boxed sets of 12 nostalgic note cards by Roy Powers, known for his acrylic paintings of popular Reno area landmarks including Lander Street Grocery, Liberty Belle, Mount Rose School, Louis Basque Corner, Landrums Diner and many more.

We even have a wide selection of repurposed authentic vintage postcards, dating from the turn-of-the-century. These holiday themed postcards are archivally mounted on high-quality card stock, with a window opening inside, revealing the original handwritten message on the back of the postcard, sometimes even a dated postmark and 1-cent stamp are still affixed. Each card is unique.  Matching envelopes are included.
