Hearing the word “shadowboxes” takes me back to my childhood when every single gift we gave my mom was a small bear figurine for her shadow box. Our last name is Bernstein so it was only fitting that she collect bears.
I come across shadowboxes all the time at Goodwill so I figured it is time to buy one and sass it up! I bought this one at the Lakemore store for just $1.50.
