I Rubbed Them....Both....No Genie. ::sigh:: I Guess You Have To Be An Astronaut. Status: Still Pretty Cool Lamps - Available.
One of the advantages of authoring this daily blog is that it kicks my but and makes me take pics of stuff that I've been meaning to make available on my craigslist ads. It's a Two Birds...One Stone thing. What is it with birds and idioms? "Two Birds, One Stone...A Bird In The Hand, Two In The Bush"? ::shrugg:: That's a question for a different blog.
This blog is about...well...I still don't know what it's "about", but I'm here to feature cool mid
twentieth century whatnot and ephemera! So check out these amazingly beautiful Genie
Nice right?! The "funny" story is: I didn't buy these as a pair! I bought the first one from
Hannah. I needed some chairs to pair with desks and when I went to buy some from her via a
craigslist ad she had placed, she also had a bunch of lampshades (which I also needed
and bought!) and one of these two lamps. I can't recall off hand which.
The other one I found maybe a month later at the Value Village Thrift store on Lindbergh here
in Florissant. Weird! They are such a great match. I wish I had a matched set of lampshades. If
I did, I might just keep them. But alas, I am making them available on my ads. The pictured
shade can be had with either one of them but I only have the one shade. It's perfect with either
The lamps aren't perfect but can be displayed to show their best sides. There are some flaws
in the wood neck on both. No biggie. Most folk wouldn't even notice.
