Experienced Ownership


What can 35 years of experience do for you? It started in 1978 in Jacksonville, Florida when a then 15 year old artist Brett Warren walked into a Do It Yourself Frameshop to frame several pieces of his own art.

After completing the framing with the help of the employees and really enjoying the experience, he then inquired about a part time job at Mr. Frame It and was given one building frames in his parents garage after school.

From there he was soon given a position in the shop framing and assisting customers. In 1982 at the age of 19, he ended up buying the business, building and running it for 8 years until selling it in 1991.

After attending a Jewelers School and working for a jeweler full time for 3 years, he then opened and ran another framing department for a retail Designer/Decorator for several more years.

The itch to own a shop again got the best of him along with a totally open market on Anastasia Island in St. Augustine, so he opened Island Framers & Gallery in December 2006 in the Sandpiper Plaza in St. Augustine Beach.

Since then much competition has come and gone but Island Framers & Gallery still survives and thrives.
