Mirror, Mirror on the Wall . . .

This morning I thought, "How can each of us tackle the day with the best attitude for the day's challenges?" Positive reinforcement can't hurt!

Now when you look at the mirror on the wall at Foursided you'll get a little boost.

Custom Framed "I Look Good" Mirror $175

Frames We Love

New frames for the new year have just arrived, and we think these are quite lovely. With a variety of stain options to choose from, these beauties will match up with any art and decor combination in your home. We especially love the subtle pattern, setting these frames apart from an otherwise ho-hum wooden frame! Stop in today and let the framers at Foursided make a standout piece for your wall!

Many Many Maps

Mapquest and Google Maps? Too Futuristic.

Folding Road Maps and GPS? Too Tiny.

We say go big or go home; and while you're at it, go vintage with these amazing wall maps! We have more antique pull-down maps than you can shake a stick at here at Foursided, in Andersonville! The majority of our maps hail from the early 1900's, and range from $94 -$110. Sure they may not be practical for getting to and fro, but they make one heck of a wall decoration or room divider. We suggest you enter 5061 North Clark into that GPS thingy of yours and come see us soon!
