With three new concepts open in the Main Line, shopping is as easy as ever this fall.
From preserving memories to displaying memorabilia, Suburban Square’s new Framebridge store, the design service’s first retail location in Pennsylvania, invites guests to customize frames in a few seamless steps. The company emerged online in 2014 with a simple concept: Customers select a frame, upload photos to their website or send in art, and Framebridge ships the finished project back free of cost. With nine retail stores and counting, the move to brick-and-mortar promises a more personalized experience with photo editing, gallery consultations and a wall of frames from which to choose. Pro tip: This is a great time to get that Eagles Super Bowl memorabilia framed. Framebridge offers a forest-green wood frame with an antique gold lip that’s exclusive to this location. 43 Coulter Ave., Ardmore, 610.490.8843, framebridge.com
Body+Beauty Lab, the Center City medical spa powered by Jefferson Health, expanded into the suburbs with a new Radnor location. Reputed for its outstanding complexion treatments, the boutique beauty destination provides a bevy of services, including over 10 injectable procedures, nonsurgical enhancements and body contouring, as well as laser hair removal and the state-of-the-art Visia skincare analysis tool. The new Main Line address also offers cellulite removal injections, spider vein laser treatment and microneedling. Korin Korman, Body+Beauty Lab founder and CEO, says that she settled on the second location to accommodate more clients. “Many of our clients either work or live in the suburbs of Philadelphia,” she says. “Our desire to expand to many more locations within major U.S. metropolitan areas, and one day reach global domination, starts with one location at a time.” 595 E. Lancaster Ave., Radnor, 215.989.3500, bodyandbeauty.com
After more than 40 years as the Main Line’s go-to place to see everything from world-class talent like Dave Matthews and Red Hot Chili Peppers to more local acts like Splintered Sunlight and Neil Young cover band Broken Arrow, Ardmore Music Hall is renovated, revamped and ready to take on the next 40. “We enhanced our guests’ concert and event experiences with installations and improvements that include a brand-new marquee, a classic street-facing box office, new premium balcony seating section, an elevated stage for better sightlines, upgrades to our state-of-the-art sound system and expanded hardwood dance floors,” says Chris Perella, head booker and owner. “The space certainly looks and feels different in ways, but we wanted to preserve the spirit of the rock club so many of our most dedicated regulars knew and loved from its days as Brownies and 23 East.”
This month, there’s plenty of variety for live music fans. If you’re looking to dance to some funk and jam, Melvin Seals & JGB, Dumpstaphunk, Perpetual Groove and Los Amigos Invisibles are slated to play. And jazz guitar staple Bill Frisell and conscious rap trailblazer KRS-One both have highly anticipated returns to the stage. And looking forward, on Nov. 17, The Soul Rebels will be joined by Grammy-nominated singer, poet, songwriter, author and lead singer Tarriona “Tank” Ball of Tank and The Bangas for an exclusive one-night show as part of the band’s Epic Vibes Tour. 23 E. Lancaster Ave., Ardmore, 610.649.8389, ardmoremusichall.com
