It's not everyone who can say they've been within sneezing distance of Jimi Hendrix and John Lennon. But Stu Robb of Sgraffito Picture Framers has probably been closer to more famous people than any of us can imagine.
Husband and wife team Monette and David Blackborow of Antheas answer in unison when asked what it's like working together every day. "We're best friends!" say the couple. Which is probably just as well, because not only do they live and work together but they have recently undertaken a major refurbishment of the shop which has all been designed and styled by Monette.
It's not so much keeping up with the Joneses as it is keeping up with the Bilkeys. The family have been retailers in Remuera for 30 years now, first with Bilkey & Co Jewellers, then with Browns clothing store. They've recently combined the two and relaunched as Browns.
