We Left The Salvation Army And The Sold Set Of Brasilia Behind Stopping At The Goodwill With A Sour Puss Only To Find... Status: Blam!
This AMAZING retro lamp helped to ease the pain of missing out on the Brasilia bedroom set yesterday. This is, hands down, the BEST lamp I've ever found at the thrift stores...and I've found plenty!
This is truly hard to believe. This made it through the machine without getting busted up, bent or
broken! We stopped at the St. Charles Goodwill after suffering bitter disappointment back at the
Salvation Army on Saturday hoping to find at least a little something to salve the pain of missing
out (by mere hours according to Nick, who had been to the same thrift earlier in the day and did
not find the Brasilia yet available!) on the killer bedroom set.
BINGO! The thrift Gods opened their hearts and poured unto me a mountain of blessings...well,
they delivered unto me this Bad *ss retro lamp anyway! This really did make it all better too. I'm
so dang easy! I just couldn't believe that all the "shades" were intact and unbroken! AND it all
works! AND it came with three working bulbs! Check out the three way switch settings. One,
Two or Three bulbs on. Nice.
Overall, it's in pretty good shape. I haven't done ANY cleanup on it At All! It's got enough wear
and tear on it so's you know it's legit but not enough to embarrass itself either. I'm thinking about
including this in the Green Shag Parking Lot Sale next weekend. Any takers out there? Make
sure you get there early to get your hands on this first! June 2 - 9am sharp! Think I might need to
put numbers out while I'm setting up? Since I'll have a booth ostensibly "set up" inside (we'll see)
I think I might be able to "take" a check or credit card but you'll have to pay sales tax inside. I'm
not sure about this, I'll have to talk to the management about it. Sure would be nice though, huh!
