About us

Foursided began it's journey in 2001 by merging several of our founder's loves–the world of art and framing with paper and beautiful gifts. We strive to cultivate communities that enjoy art, whether it's framing a showcase work of art for your home or the art of giving a handcrafted card or vintage gift. We are a resource for those who appreciate art and its sentimental value, as well as for advancing select independent artisans and makers. We have a wonderful team whose mission is to bring each of our guest's imagination to life with art, custom framing, curated gifts, ephemera, and vintage objects. Please stop by and say hello. Bring your dog, too!
