I know a few guys that used to work for Joe Gardin in Mississauga (just west of Toronto). His frames were made for him in Italy, many were painted at Gardin.
So is it still a deal at $260? :-) With shipping it'll make here for a grand total of $293 (~$465 CDN) sometime next week. I'm pretty pleased, but we'll see what surprises are in store when it gets here!
