It’s a haven for area artists. It’s the local flower shop. It’s a frame store. It’s the go-to for birthdays, holidays, and everyday gifts. The Sellars Place is Roundup’s creative catch-all business, with a little something for everyone in the community.
“In a small town, you have to be a jack-of-all-trades,” says Angie Sellars, who owns and operates The Sellars Place with her sister, Jessie. “People can come in for a good variety of whatever they might need.”
Roundup boasts an impressive arts community in spite of its population dipping below 2,000. Because The Sellars Place offers custom framing, artists and art buyers regularly stop in for their framing needs.
“I make my frames from scratch, from bare wood… No premolds unless by request,” Angie explains. “I also do a burning technique on them if requested called Shou Sugi Ban, an ancient Japanese technique used to set and preserve wood that makes a beautiful frame.”
The Sellars Place not only provides framing for artwork, but a variety of artwork for purchase. Local artist and artists have supplied the store with everything from crocheted items to handcrafted furniture to jewelry, photography, and fine art. In fact, two of the artists on display at the The Sellars Place are the Sellars themselves.
“We’ve done artwork all our lives,” says Jessie.
It shows in the sisters’ variety of mediums and level of skill. They paint with acrylic and oil on canvas, and have also explored painting on rocks, feathers, and other nontraditional canvases.
“We do a little bit of everything,” says Angie.
It’s a statement that applies to both the Sellars’ artwork and their eclectic store.
The Sellars Place is located at 218 Main Street in Roundup. For more information, call (406) 323-7711 or follow them on Facebook.
