FULWOOD GALLERY CLOSURE
With Peter earning a well earned retirement after framing in Preston for many years, are you looking for a new framer?
When I started framing in Preston 37 years ago, I worked closely with Peter from Fulwood Gallery. We use the same suppliers, so if you are looking for a similar service please give us a try. We have lots of framing experience and are happy to help.
