Help me buy a unique frame (or ten) online...

Are there any good resources online to buy unique picture frames online? Where else can one find good frames for 4x6 photos (or slightly bigger) for a large travel collage. I don't want to use the same frame more than once, and I'm happy to buy from several different stores.

I'm looking to frame a bunch of travel photos for a wall collage. Most will be a standard photo size, some will be enlarged but only slightly. However, I'm looking to find interesting frames, each one different than the next. Google searching turns up a ton of framing stores with very generic ugly frames.

I've already started my search in flea markets and a few local framing stores around Toronto (I've seen this thread). However, if I could mail order a bunch of individual frames, I'd love that.

Things I like include the old wood weathered look, metals, and anything a bit unique. Looking to frame things individually, not in a group of 3 or anything like that.

Thrift stores like Goodwill and the Salvation Army typically stock a wide variety of unique, inexpensive picture frames. I think the size you're looking for will be easy to find there.

Maybe buy lots of cheap simple frames [IKEA has 4x6 plain wood frames for no more than $1 with glass, IIRC], invite some friends over and bedazzle them.
