Business Description
Hilton Smythe is delighted to welcome to the market this well-established art & craft, hobbies and picture framing business, which is ideally located within the town of Weymouth, Dorset.

The business was established by our client in 2013 and is only now being offered to the market, due to our client’s desire for a well-deserved retirement. The business currently operates 6 days per week and generates a turnover in the region of £40,000 per annum, with a gross profit of approximately 62%.

Our client supplies a wide variety of art & craft supplies, including acrylics, brushes, calligraphy goods, canvases, card making materials, drawing equipment, easels, craft kits, watercolours and soft toy kits, to name a few, as well as offering a picture framing service. Our client can frame all type of pictures, specialising in box framing and undertake commissions for items that need protecting.

The business has built up an excellent reputation within the industry for the high quality of the goods and service offered, which has resulted in a very loyal client base, with a high volume of repeat trade and word of mouth recommendations.

We feel there is scope to increase the turnover by extending the opening hours, perhaps by offering Sunday trading. A new owner could also embark on a modest marketing campaign to promote the goods offered. Our client already has two websites in place to promote the stock offered at and, which incorporates online ordering facilities.

This is an excellent opportunity for a new owner to take this already busy business to the next level. Our client would be willing to offer training to the purchaser on the picture framing side of the business; free of charge.

 Early viewing must come highly recommended to avoid disappointment.
