Andrew Wyeth Art for an Unbelievable Price

I rarely find Andrew Wyeth art at thrift stores

I’m currently on an art buying spree, thanks to the new house my husband and I are buying. So now when I step into local thrift shops, the first place I head is to the art corner. On a recent trip, I spotted this framed Andrew Wyeth print I remembered from my childhood (we’re an artistic family). It brought back memories of my younger brother sporting a coon skin cap. Of course, I had to have it.

Now, anyone who recognizes the name “Andrew Wyeth” knows that his work is very collectible. Framed prints routinely sell for around $50 at my favorite consignment store and you’d be lucky to find them online for anywhere near that. So when I turned it over and saw the $5.99 price tag, I was giddy. What a deal!

Sure, the frame has a little nick, but it was well worth the $5.99 I was prepared to pay. But, no, my total was $1.07, with tax, since the print was on sale for $.99 that week.

Now that I’ve shown you my big bargain, I’m almost embarrassed to show you the large oil painting I bought last month online at Goodwill… it cost more than this print.
