About Us

It's almost hard to believe, but Frames Games & Things Unnamed is entering it's 7th year in business!  We first opened shop in Longmont, CO in March of 2011 and since then expanded to Estes Park and Breckenridge. Our Longmont and Breckenridge stores are no longer there, but we are still going strong in Estes Park.

This business started as a dream of Paul's to be able to do something 'in retirement' that would keep him off the couch!  We started with our custom made frames and built the business from there.  We are known for our family friendly, educational wooden games and puzzles that require face to face communication that helps to build the social skills so many of today's kids lack.  We pride ourselves on disguising learning by having fun!

We have a wide variety of games, puzzles, jigsaws, kid's items as well as custom frames, wooden watches and jewelry and various wooden items throughout the stores.  We invite you to come and see how much fun you can have!

Owners Paul and Julie Johnson migrated to Colorado in 2004 from their native home of Minnesota.  Paul has a background in kitchen design and sales and Julie is an educator; after 10 years in the classroom is now a K-8 charter school principal.  You can meet our 'baby' Reese if you are lucky when you visit our Estes Park location, as he comes to work with Julie when she mans the store. 

We are located in Estes Park at 440 E. Elkhorn Ave. (next to Kind Coffee).  We look forward to visiting with you!
