I picked up two frames with an antique metallic finish and beautiful custom mattes for $10 each.The asking price was $15 but it never hurts to ask.A smile and a please can do wonders! The designers want to get rid of their inventory so they do not mind reducing the price. The prints were somewhat damaged but I knew a single frame would cost me more than 40 grand each if I buy retail. Just when I was about to leave, I saw a calendar with beautiful coral prints. The ones like you would see in designer furniture catalogs and priced at a couple of hundreds of dollars. Guess what they were asking for the calendar -- $5 only! A match made in heaven.
