Olyphant Art Supply & Framing, soon to be known as Olyphant Art & Media, is closing in on the end of its fundraising effort on indiegogo, a crowdfunding website.

Owners and brothers J.B. and Nick Baldridge, who are moving the business into the space once occupied by Whodunit? Books on Fifth Avenue in downtown Olympia, are seeking to raise $8,000 for the move and related expenses.

So far they have raised about $1,300 since June 15. The fundraising campaign ends July 15.

The business is offering T-shirts designed by Olyphant employees, prints of original paintings by local artist Nick Baldridge, original custom portraits and other gifts to those who donate.

A grand re-opening for Olyphant in its new location is set for August.
