Deborah. Buying them will be the easiest way but I have always found ways
to get mirrors free. The most successful is to ask a glass company for
them. Tell them who you are and most of the time they will give you scrap
mirror cut fairly rectangularly.....or cut a sheet for you right
there. Tape the edges with masking tape. If you have a parent who works
at one of these places that helps even more. The glass is better than
those plastic ones also.

>I ask because:
>1. I inherited my art room without any mirrors, and
>2. The cost of buying decent acrylic mirrors made for art classes would
> wipe out a substantial part of my budget, and
>3. I saw some approx. 6" diameter round mirrors at the dollar store
> today, that have an adjustable angle and can be propped on a table.
>Opinions welcome... thanks
