L'Eclat De Verre opens first United States Store in Georgetown


L’Eclat de Verre recently opened the doors of its first store in the United States in Georgetown’s Cady’s Alley.  The French boutique, which specializes in 18th-century framing techniques, boasts in-hous technicians who can frame anything from sports equipment and wedding mementos to photographs and more traditional works of art. L’Eclat de Verre also houses more than 500 varieties of matting material from around the globe. Stop in on Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. for workshops on framing and cartonnage- the art of creating boxes (pictured), photo albums and other crafts from French-made board or paper. L’Eclat de Verre is located at 3336 M Street, NW. Call 202-333-6840 or visit the web site
