i deleted my double post from the macro thread. Duh.
We went to Big Lots yesterday and i got a sweet deal on gallery quality black wood frames, four for $40 (last ones they had). Easily worth $60 from my normal supplier. All i have to do is add screw eyes, wire, foamcore and mats i already have.
Also noticed they have stretched canvas in three different sizes, largest being 18x24 for $8. Soild constuction with taut canvas. i haven't painted in many years but thought some of y'all might be interested. Their inventory varies from store to store but it's worth checking.
They also had good bargains on various fruit juices, some are organic.
