Vintage Frame Sale
Where else can you be invited to a vintage frame sale in an old warehouse jamb packed with handmade wooden frames that have been collecting dust for almost a hundred years? Nowhere but Cincinnati. And that is why I love living here!
I went to the sale with the idea that I would only take photos. But I left the sale with about 15 circular frames of varying sizes because the deals to be had were too dang good! People were buying huge stacks of frames for $75. It was really quite a scene. When we arrived we were offered rubber gloves and we all thought that was extreme...that is until we saw the amount of dust. The frame in the photo above looks grey, but it is really a white frame covered in dust! And after about fifteen minutes of frantic frame shoppers grubbing and grabbing frames, the air was filled with dust too. I'm sure we all left with a pound of extra dust not only on our frames but in our hair, coats and lungs...small sacrifice for such fun. Now, what to do with all these frames?
