|It all began in 1983, when the present owner, Connie White Jones, purchased a three year old frame shop. Mrs. Jones soon added an array of home accessories to her store front at Gaston Mall. In addition to providing professional framing, The Frame Shop offered customers decorative accessories, lamps, framed art, mirrors, small furniture, and florals.|
During the year 2004, Mrs. Jones realized that a move would be in the future for her store. The aging Gaston Mall was to be torn down and rebuilt. Not knowing the exact time of the demolition, plans to find another location were begun.
A new shopping center, Hoffman Village, was just beginning. There, Mrs. Jones found the future location for her store, and in December of 2004, The Frame Shop made its move to Hoffman Village and opened under the name Art's Desire. A name change for the business was done because so many customers had said "you're more than just a frame shop!". We listened, and changed the name.
Art's Desire is all about the art of entertaining, accessorizing, corresponding, giving, ……………….
