Thought I better post something quick tonight before TGBWC gets back from his evening stroll and puts up another incredible find! :)
I picked up my 1905 Lillian Nordica coupon-ad today from framer and tonight she's hanging by the fireplace. The guy at the frame shop (same dude that mounted the banner) gave me an incredible deal on a frame gilded in 18 karat gold leaf. He had a 6 ft. length in his shop which had not moved in 5 years, and he insisted on pricing it at his 2007 cost of $50. So the whole job cost less than $100. When I paid him off today he said today's material cost would have yielded a $300 charge. So here it is, probably my classiest looking piece to date. Hope everybody has a great weekend.
