The KINGDOM mirror– proving that you NEVER KNOW what is on the other end of a Craigslist ad.

After the Victorian wardrobe salvage saga…

After loading and unloading a truck until nearly midnight…

Paul told me to stop looking on Craigslist for a while.
He said I had reached my quota.

I nodded and pretended like he was the one who made such decisions.

When you SEE what I just got on Craigslist?  You will fall over.

My pier mirrors.  I collect large, gold Victorian mirrors… the more ornate, the better!
Wow. This is totally fascinating… keep reading.
