Default Displays and props for photos.. Frames?

I have searched and found a few online but still on the hunt for ornate or unique frames.

Husband is actually going with me (I'll drag if I have to) to the stores tomorrow to look for props, frames and to help come up with ideas with me. He was saying he'd put his money on the mirror isles and home shops and is thinking we should check out walmart and home goods stores.

I'm thinking thrift shops and dollar stores would have something I can repaint and make my way. Like the ugly plastic ones could just use a coat of flat paint. Or something that has a break or chip.

He was also CERTAIN there was a great headband display out there that was just what I was after. I don't see one LOL. I see the plastic clear ones and that's about it. I can imagine just what I'd want but don't know how to make it myself.

Thought I would ask here. I don't know if any of you had a good find or anything but any ideas? Even a clue would help. I have none
We need a china frame buy here, y'all!

I don't know if there is a Homesense/Winners in the States but that is where I have gotten every single one of mine plus tons of my photo props. Its my favourite store!!

I depends on what look you are going for. I love vintage/shabby chic so I would try thrift stores and places like that and then repaint them to look like this:

No Ikea And for such a poor town the don't have great thrift stores. I think it's odd because when I shop the goodwill here the prices are over what they are in the big city next to us and they don't sift out icky quality goods.

I DO have a marshals. No idea why i didn't think of that one! And a Ross. They're both only maybe a 2-5 minute from my door. (Duh)
I'm hoping they have something really chunky and ornate to start with and then I can do some shabby ones like you posted here in colors to coordinate.

Can't wait to get these DONE! It stormed today so no computer or shopping but imagine we'll be out for them tomorrow and I can post pics.

I just know they're in the store waiting somewhere!!

Thanks for the ideas!!!
