After 8 years of successful finds on craigslist, I just had my first disappointing experience. I bought a large (38" x 48") wall mirror with a wooden frame for $35. It looked like it was in good condition, but unfortunately, the whole thing collapsed during transport. The glass is still in perfect condition, but the frame broke at the joints. Since the breaks were clean, I'm thinking that there's a chance that it can be repaired. I stopped by a framing store near my house and they weren't very encouraging and suggested getting a new frame for it, which would be like $300-500, so um... no. If anyone has any suggestions for how to repair this on my own, please let me know. I was planning on hanging this horizontally over a dresser using the "d-rings" attached to the frame.
