Show and Tell Friday.........

Kelli's Show and Tell Friday............


I bought this long mirror for $15.00 several years ago. Recently, I saw one just like it in an antique shop for $100.00. It is very heavy. I used it in the bedroom for years and decided to just stand it against the wall on the floor in the den. It reflects light and is a conversation piece. Also, it's wonderful to check appearance when hurrying out the door..........

Pretty mirror. You sure did get some deals! Looking at your picture, I can see that you definately know how to decorate!

PEA said...

It always amazes me how people will get rid of things for a cheap price, not realizing it's an antique and worth a lot of money!! That was to your advantage, though, when you found it! hehe It's beautiful and I love the idea of having it in the den!! xox

Shocking the wonderful things that end up in flea markets and yard sales! Pretty!

Your mirror is very lovely! My hubby and I like to watch "Antiques Roadshow", and it is amazing what people find at garage sales that end up being worth hundreds or thousands.
