    Comments about RECLAIMED TIN FRAMES:

    The traditional 10 year anniversary gift is tin, so this reclaimed tin frame was great for the occasion. I had my two kids hold my wedding photo while standing in the same place it was taken, same time of day and weather. Then I put the picture in the tin frame. It was my wife's favorite present she has received from me.

      Nice product. Ordered three, wife only liked Green. Sent Green back too b/c it was so rusted it was falling apart in the bag. CSR said she would personally inspect and send new one. We think they sent us the same one just took it out of the rusty pieces filled bag and reshipped.

        Comments about RECLAIMED TIN FRAMES:

        I had purchased this with the intent of giving it away as a gift but I was disappointed with the quality of the design which is a little too "rustic". The cut in the middle of the frame is somewhat rough so I'm thinking of embellishing it somehow to make it more appealing. The construction is solid but the design is lacking. I don't think it's worth the price I paid, I'm just too lazy to return it.

          Would have loved it in a 5x7 size, otherwise, it's gorgeous! Great 10th anniversary traditional gift (tin).

              This was a gift for my mother who is very difficult to find presents for. I knew that she had photos of my niece and thought this would be perfect.
