FRAME ART SUPPLY STORE EXPANDS TO BROOKINGS

By Marjorie Woodfin

Pilot staff writer

Dennis and Suzie Wright, with help from other family members, opened Wright's Custom Framing this month, at 509 Chetco Ave.

The Brookings store might be considered an expansion of the family frame shop in Crescent City, originally the Ben Franklin store when Dennis Wright's parents Jim and Lillian Wright took it over in 1980.

Dennis, who worked for a trucking company, and Suzie, who was a bus driver, moved from Sacramento to join his parents in the Crescent City store in 1992 and began their on-the-job training.

"We started getting into it and we liked it," he said. "The Lord gave us most of the gifting. We trust in Him." About the new store, Dennis said, "If He wants it to go, it'll go. If not, that's okay. We're Christians first."

Over the years, they have learned how best to serve artists and art lovers, many of their customers traveling from the Brookings area.

"I always wanted to branch out," Dennis said. "We have enjoyed coming to the art walks and we considered coming here several years ago, but it just didn't seem like the right time."

When the opportunity to move into the shop next door to the Curry Coastal Pilot became available, it seemed to the Wrights to be the right time to open the new store to make shopping for framing and art supplies more convenient for Brookings customers.

The Wrights, including Dennis Wright's parents, grown children, Travis and Keiara, and sister and brother-in-law, Scott and Terri LaFollette, are all involved in the new shop as well as the store in Crescent City. However, Suzie said she expects to be the one tending the Brookings store most often.

The merchandise in both shops includes more than custom frames, with an extensive selection of ready-made frames and a wide array of art supplies.

Wright's Custom Framing is open from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Friday and 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Saturday.
