    What a great find! Not only the one but you have two! So cool. I would have those appraised . I bet those are worth alot. They had to been in some kind of castle. King and queens and elect subjects looking in that very mirrors. So cool.

    This story is hilarious and makes me wish I had Craigslist luck like you do. The fact you have a similar mirror in your entry really sealed the deal, and now I must read all your other posts.

    Omg that was a riot- I had o read it to my hub and I was laughing the whole time I was trying to read it to him. I do the same thing. My last craigslist “find” I had to get from southern california to the central oregon coast. I found it a ride with a lady driving a volvo wagon back from there to the town next up from mine. I gave her $50 gas money to haul it here. She had been seeking a paying passenger thru craigslist rideshare for the trip back. The item was an oak artists taboret- a cabinet to keep supplies in. I’d researched all the possibilities for the best set up for me and this was the model I wanted, but they were many hundreds of dollars new. The wife of the guy who owned it wanted it gone and she sold it to me for less than what he asked (she literally ased e to offer less!)- I got it for $100 plus the gas money. And the lady in the volvo got a safe, silent, paying passenger for her trip back. She delivered it to my door. Destiny.

    ever so slightly disappointed that you didn’t take a picture of it in the house. I’m not sure that it’s standing up by some rickety old steps did it justice.

    I’m giving my husband dirty looks after I read this, because he’s coming up with excuses why I wouldn’t have been hauling home that big mirror. But, I did get him to haul home my giant water fountain. That I got for free. After being the 26th person in line. And only because I believed them when they said it was heavy and brought along enough muscle to load it! I can’t wait to read more of your stories!

    Hey! I have the troll and the husband with murderous facial expressions. He exercises them every time I get anything of eternal importance. It only happens about 4 times a year. When will men learn if you don’t follow through, your nonverbal threats become meaningless?

    Sister, the only difference between us is your troll has access to money. I bid you good tidings as you live the life yearn for. With all the things.

    I love the part when you say it’s the look of defeat or the question after all of his silence is defeat ❤️️💯❤️️

    My dear, dear Victoria Elizabeth. We share more than the name Elizabeth. I only just discovered your site. The Kindom Mirror story was shared on a Facebook DECLUTTERATON group. LOL!!! I have a house full of thrift store treasures, which I must now (sadly) send on to new homes. But I have never, ever scored anything so glorious as your Kindom Mirror! Your description of your experiences and your hubby’s enabling responses are hilarious and so fantastic to read. Bless you Victoria Elizabeth. You have made my day. 🙂

    I soooooo completely understand this!!! I am green with envy, and super happy for you! I collect mirrors as well, have for many years, have never came across a score like this one!!! Better than triple 7s at the casino in my book!
    I am looking at a wall in my home right now that giant would be perfect on!
    Literally the Mother Load of mirrors!
    Congratulations!!! And shine on!!! 🙂
