History of TFS Restoration, formerly The Frame Shop and gallery:

Louis Bucklin opened his first Photography Studio and Frame Shop in 1956 on State Street in Media, Pennsylvania, where he offered photography and picture framing services as well as photo, painting, and frame restoration work. In 1968, The Frame Shop moved to Baltimore Pike in Media, where Louis later phased out photography to focus on framing, restoration, and the newly added gallery.

In 1978, daughter Kathleen joined Louis at The Frame Shop and gallery, becoming an official partner in the business in 1994.

Although our retail location closed in 2014, we continue our tradition of expert photo, painting, and frame restoration work by appointment at 610.566.5485.

Customer Reviews:

"I am a Philadelphia lawyer who has been going to The Frame Shop & Gallery in Media for the past 15 years. During this time, I have gotten to know the owners, Louis Bucklin and his daughter Kathleen Bucklin, both of whom are not only exceptionally talented at what they do but also exceptionally wonderful people. Through the years, I have had many precious items framed, including diplomas, awards, courtroom drawings, paintings, etc. and have always been 150% pleased at the quality of framing and also the quality of service. Despite the fact that I am very particular in selecting frames & matting & glass, Louis & Kathy always took the time to explore every option with me so that I could make the perfect selections. Additionally, they have always done an extraordinary job with items that required special attention and/or restoration. For anyone looking for superior craftsmanship and superior service, I would recommend this framing gallery without hesitation."
