Thrift Find : $2 Large Frame
I love garage sales.
It’s like looking for treasure where you’ll never know what you will find at such an amazing price.
If you don’t mind getting second hand things, which I do not, thrifting might be a good idea for you.
This thrift is about how I bought this frame for $2 at a garage sale.
The fact is that I didn’t find this thrift. Well, it was my parents who found it while they were at a garage sale. They don’t do it anymore, but I’m so glad that they found this gem.
Thanks Mom and Dad!
I was actually looking for a frame for my wedding poster before we got married (which we later bought at Michaels, but you can find similar ones here). So they were looking out for a large frame for me as well.
This was how the phone conversation went down:
Mom: We’re at a garage sale. Your dad found this picture frame.
Me: Oh, is it big?
Mom: Yes, do you want me to measure it?
Me: How much is it? (It’s first about the price, haha)
Me: Just get it, we’ll figure out what to do with it later.
I bought something over the phone based on my trust in my parents.
It is a solid frame and I’m glad that my parents know good quality frames.
I didn’t know what to do with it at first because it’s an odd colour and I didn’t want to remove the backing.
I didn’t have a staple gun (still don’t, but my sister does!) so I have no clue how to remove and put it back together if needed.
Now that we (I mean my sister) have a staple gun, I took it apart and was able to make it practical and useful for me.
Here is the after picture:
You can see how to make this calendar frame here.
