There are times to buy at stores as well. I picked up my venetian mirrors at Homesense in the spring. After Christmas stores start to quickly put spring items in the store and they are usually perfect shabby chic stuff. Think of it, it's the time of pink, white, and pretty greens. I picked up my venetian mirror boxes at both Christmas (they are in the stores now) and in the spring. Christmas is more than red and green, now it's sparkly and gorgeous. As I mentioned before even Michael's is now doing pink and silver for Christmas.
The final place I look is thrift stores. Interesting frames can come in thrift stores wrapped around horrendous pictures so look beyond the picture. I saw a beautiful one once and walked away and still think about it.
When all else fails, ebay is a great source but to be honest I have never had a mirror shipped to me.
Thank you Linda for getting my creative juices flowing when I was still drinking my coffee!!
Until next time,
