sorry for the delay in posts. i've been out all morning at meetings and then i got lost in anthropologie buying a christmas party dress. but, i did manage to score the best framing resource i've ever come across. lindsey adelman suggested that i use sky frame and art in manhattan and i am so, so glad i took her up on it. i wanted to have 5 pieces framed (2 LARGE wallpaper strips, 2 small prints and one medium sized poster). i had it appraised at three places for over $900 which was of course way beyond my budget. i just got back from sky frame and the whole thing was $350. i owe lindsey big time. so, if you're in manhattan and need a great framing resource check out sky frame and art: 141 west 28th street, 12th floor. and, small world story of the year: i ran into a girl i went to elementary school with who works there. so, so weird.
[sorry for the ny only post, i hate doing that but this was too great to pass up]
