    Default Vintage Ethan Allen Shaving Mirror - Want to bid on ebay need opinions please

    Hi


    Has anyone owned or had any experience with this Ethan Allen vintage wooden shaving mirror? I love the old school charm of the thing and it has storage too which is nice. Just seeing if anyone has any feedback, the price seems really good to, gotta love ebay.

    I have no experience with the mirror in question, but I do have a cautionary word. If you see something really cool in an online auction that has a really low price, it is probably best to use your own best judgment and not bring it to the attention of hundreds of other people who share the same tastes and interests as yourself. The folks who participate on this forum are as giving and helpful as you will find anywhere on the internet, but we are all looking for a bargain. Posting an ongoing auction that might otherwise have been overlooked can greatly reduce your chances of winning with a low bid.

    What they said about broadcasting the auction.

    Ethan Allen especially the older stuff is high quality furniture. As far as the item goes it's all a matter of your tastes in styles.

    I don't think you're going to hear back from him . If you check his profile , you'll find that the first , last , and only time he was on this forum , was when he posted the auction .
