To call Dave a history buff is an understatement. “I’m here with my latest treasure,” he says each time he stops in with a new project. As a treasure hunter, Dave has researched and collected the historical postcards, artifacts, and photographs of the City of Red Wing for many years.

As a retiree of the Northern States Power Co., Dave is a fan of the old electricity mascot, “Reddy Kilowatt.” He boasts and extensive collection of historic media, mementos, and relics.

Dave discovers many of his treasures on Ebay. When he finds something of interest, he conducts research at the Goodhue County Historical Society to ensure its legitimacy.

Dave has framed several newspaper ads, tintype photos, military certificates, and most recently a playbill from the Red Wing opera house, which burned down in 1882.

When it comes to framing, Dave is no frills–preservation is his game. His aim is to ensure history “will be around for future generations.” As museum quality framers, we are proud to help Dave achieve his goal.


We are proud to serve the Prairie Island Indian Community, which is located approximately 15 miles northwest of our Red Wing shop. We’ve been blessed to preserve several pieces of historical significance to the tribe.

The community proudly operates Treasure Island Resort and Casino, which is Goodhue County’s largest employer. This large gallery wrap will welcome hotel visitors. The inscription reads:

The people of Prairie Island are descendants of the Mdewakanton Band of Eastern Dakota, also known as the Mississippi or Minnesota Sioux, who were parties to the treaties with the United States from 1805 to 1863.

The next few weeks’ weather forecast looks to be a lot of thaw and freeze. This epic icicle from last season measured probably close to 6 feet. We are excited to see what this upcoming round of weather will bring. Stay tuned.

Autumn is our window artist and this latest window is quickly becoming a shop favorite.

Happy 2017.  We are always relieved when the holiday season is over.  In our line of work we don’t get to enjoy the holidays so much because we are so busy.

But being busy is a blessing.  Here is hoping you have a busy and blessed 2017.
