“I just used Steve Shafer aka Galleria Framing recently. The picture was large and needed dry mounting, matting, and framing. He did a great job, fast and very nicely. He also offered excellent advise on the mat color and size. Reasonably priced. He also has a great selection of frames, plus he’s a Fearringtonian!””He has framed numerous pictures and paintings for us as well as hung difficult large triptychs. His expertise is in framing, hanging and arranging as well as conservation and restoration.”

“Serving Fearrington Village for many years. Very reliable, prompt, and friendly service at very affordable rates.”
“One of our electric garage door openers was not functioning so Lee called the installer: Garage Doors unlimited. The owner, Nim, answered the phone and ” talked her through it. Problem solved. He told my wife he didn’t want to charge for a house call unless it was absolutely necessary. What a great guy.”
“We have also benefitted from his services and he really is a nice guy. He replaced the original weather seals on both of our overhead garage doors and tuned up the whole operating system. Much quieter, smoother, and no more instances of the door panels sticking to the vinyl weatherstripping! What a relief. He worked us into his very busy schedule and was very accommodating. We’re really very pleased with his work.”

Comment from Fearrington Village resident:
“Gay Gasper had an estate sale at my home [in June 2019]. My experience working with Gay has been terrific. She is professional, patient, honest and explains everything clearly. She and her staff worked very hard to set up our estate sale. She advertised the sale and posted photos. There was a huge turnout and the sale was a success. Gay took care of everything. After the sale, she donated unsold items and anything that could not be donated she had removed from my house. I cannot thank Gay, her son and staff enough. Moving is very stressful, and she made it so much easier for me.”

“I first learned about Bellhops through here, on a post that had mixed reviews. I decided to take a chance, as when I first moved to village last summer, I used a big-bucks mover that didn’t do the best job. Last week I moved out of my rental into a house I bought just a few streets over. The Bellhops guys were terrific! Professional, informed, nice, and willing to go above and beyond. Plus affordable. I highly recommend….and be sure to request Darren and Palmer if you have an upcoming move!’
“We, too, used them for unpacking and set up. Tuition at an average NC community college is about $4k and many Bellhops are students trying to get a higher education.”
