    VICTORIA! I NEES THIS MIRROR! I need to have a shrine built for you at my house. I will love it forever, please don’t give it to anyone else who will pretend it isn’t fabulous. I’ve followed you for years. No one else deserves it.

      I WANT to tell you— TAKE IT BECAUSE I KNOW YOU WILL LOVE IT AND THEN YOUR ENTIRE LIFE WILL BE PERFECT AND MAGICAL.

      WHAT KIND OF HIDEOUS MONSTER WOULD KEEP THAT JOY FROM YOU?
      Self would.

      Self wants to only give this to people who come with fistfuls of cash.
      Self is Al Capone with a newfound chandelier fetish.
      It’s embarrassing.

        you are a sweetheart…Self is a cunning,calculating fricking Genius! Motto: Get GFT stuff-the real stuff of Life and don’t spare the horses or maybe a yuge pick up truck? Moving van? your own 747!

        I’m slowly wearing my husband down to the idea of owning this GFT. But he is making me sell my other mirror first. I just hope you can’t tell it before I figure out the logistics of it all. Self is clawing inside my brain until it is mine😂

    At least I am afforded the relief of knowing that this will absolutely not fit in my house. So I don’t even have to bother wanting it. I greatly admire your ability to get rid of things you like. As for the new GFT? Bring. It. On.

    I have faith in you Victoria, I’m sure the new GFTs will be glorious. Especially the chandelier, as there is no such thing as a less than spectacular antique chandelier.
    My only complaint is that you live so far away as my husband is refusing to drive from FL to pick up a mirror that won’t fit in our home. As of one day we won’t live in an old Victorian! Men – no vision!

    Do you think there is a chance the person who buys it will start a blog and let us all into their personal lives, and home, and treat us to a tour of all their other treasures? Me either, but it would be fun!

    I am shocked and bewildered that you would give up the Kingdom Mirror—the coolest thing ever. Whatever this new GFT is, I’m on the edge of my seat to see it.

    Stop the world, I need to change into mourning clothes. VEB and the kingdom mirror is my favorite love story, and my heart is forever broken.

      I’m right beside you. This is a twist in the story most unexpected.

      The Kingdom Mirror Story was soooooooo meaningful for my husband as he learned there are others in the world almost as diligent in the pursuit of “things” as I am. Almost.

    I’m a little confused. Is the GFT you’re selling the mirror for, the bookcase/cabinet that is in the video at the top of this post? If so, I think you made a fantastic decision! If not, I’m still confused. 🙁 But the glass front cabinet is beautiful (an understatement) and so much more useful than a GF mirror, don’t you think?

      My thoughts EXACTLY!! Why, oh why, can I not come across some GFT such as this, grow tired of it, and replace it with something more of a GFT? At 10x the profit? Oh yeah, cause I reside in the desert southwest where all the GFT’s = dried up, dusty, cowboy paraphernalia……boo hoo! LoL!!
