Picked Up Another Lovely "Chocolate" Lamp At An Estate Sale This Weekend. 'Cuz Chocolate's Better When....There's More. Status: Doubled.
Check it out! The lamp in the background was pilfered from an estate sale long, long ago in West County and the New lamp in the foreground was snatched up at an estate sale this weekend in Belleville Il. which could be kinda considered East County!
Not a perfect match but Oh So Close! I say "Chocolate Lamp" but really it's more of a Three
Musketeers Lamp. You know...like the candy bar....if you cut one in half. Great...now I want
a candy bar. Other coincidences? Both were found in the basement in of their respected sales.
And both were the same price!
...But those shades couldn't be more different! The first is like burlap with spun fiberglass and
then laced along the edges. Weird, right? But it's really cool. The second is a standard shade...
that is wrapped with two tones of twine. So they are completely different...yet both weird...and
Classic Genie Bottle shapes. Gotta love 'em! Do I need another lamp? Nope. No really, we got
lamps out the wazoo 'round here! I need to get some garage shelves for all the extra stuff we
got sitting around in this joint! I'm sure it would make finding stuff much easier. Maybe I'll find
some cheap shelves at the Estate Sale I'm going to in the morning! Maybe I'll get another lamp
