About Us

Welcome to Side Street Framers & gift gallery, now at two locations to serve you better (Severna Park and Pasadena Maryland).. We have built our reputation on being able to frame virtually anything. People come to us for high quality, yet affordable, traditional two-dimensional framing, but how we made our name is by taking on the more challenging three-dimensional projects that other shops won’t touch. Because of this experience, we have become known as specialist in the fine art of shadowbox framing.

Side Street Framers & gift gallery began in Severna Park, Maryland in 1989. We are a family owned and operated business. Started by Barbara, Dawn, Sandy & Donna, four women who love design, color, and art. Stephanie Lavis, our amazing and wonderful framer, joined our team 28 years ago and has become part of our family.

We can help you frame your diplomas, children's art, needlework, sport's memorabilia, canvasses as well as just about anything else you may want to hang on your walls.  

We also help preserve some the items that mean the most.  We offer conservation framing as well as UV protected glass to make sure your items last for generations to come.

Please come see our wonderful gallery filled with pottery, jewelry, handmade soaps and lotions and more, all created by artisans in the USA; many of which live in Maryland and surrounding areas.

It's a great place to shop for a gift that you know is unique and won't be found anywhere else. Whether you need custom framing or a gift for that special someone, stop by our two locations (Severna Park and Pasadena Maryland), we'd love see you.

If you have questions, suggestions or would like to contact us please feel free to call us at Severna Park 410.544.9050, at Pasadena 410-315-9660 or send an email to

Best Wishes,
Barbara, Dawn & Stephanie
