A few months ago while I was shopping in one of my favorite thrift stores, I stumbled upon the poster above. I was immediately attracted to the warm colors and the french phrasing. I thought about putting the poster in my kitchen but decided against it because I was trying to stick to a budget that weekend. Needless to say, I left the store without the poster but I never forgot about it. Fast forward to last weekend, I was shopping on all searching for a poster of New Orleans street names and I decided that maybe I should search for that photo. I searched “french umbrella” and lo and behold my poster was available to purchase, and it was only $8.99, less than the thrift store price! Without hesitation, I purchased both photos for less than $25, including shipping!!

I must mention that aside from being excited about my purchase I was super impressed with the site. Not only did I find exactly what I needed, the site was pretty advanced. You can buy your posters without a frame or you can chose and view your photo with custom framing and mat. In addition to that, the site offers an option to view the poster in several settings like behind a sofa, above a fireplace, in a bedroom etc.. How cool is that?

Check out All and take advantage of the 20% promotion that they are running now!

P.S. As soon as I get the photos and frames, I will post pics 🙂
