Masters shadowbox

What do you get a loved one who has everything for Christmas?   A shadowbox of personal memories makes an incredibly thoughtful and original gift . . . and we make the process easy at Barnel’s.

Not sure where to start?  We always tell our clients to bring in ‘more than enough’ items based on a theme, collection or timeframe, and let US help you pick the pieces that work.  Let our experts guide you on a look and color scheme to work with your loved one’s décor.

Some ideas to spark your creativity:

Music & the arts:  instruments, playbills, props, clothing and shoes (think tu-tu’s or ballet shoes) and of course photos make a great collection.  No item is too big!

ballet shadowboxOutdoors:  guns, hunting and hiking items, maps, fishing lures, rod and reels, duck calls, binoculars—any assortment or collection of these items makes a great showpiece.

Wedding, anniversary, honeymoon:  of course we frame wedding dresses, but there are so many wonderful options including napkins, invitations, flowers, garter, rosary, cake top, and as always, photos.

Sports:  signed collectibles, antique or special gear (even a baseball bat or hockey stick!), balls, trading cards, programs . . . the ideas for sports fans are endless.

Military:  one of the most well known concepts for a shadowbox, pins, medals, flags, patches, and dog tags make a wonderful, personal work of art for any serviceman.

Inspiration can come from anywhere—from a mod collection of key chains or pins, to a rare set of antique coins or doorknobs.  So embark on a treasure hunt this Christmas, and create a one-of-a-kind gift that’s sure to ‘wow’!
