Yesterday I Dropped In At The Green Shag Market To Pays Me Rent And See How Thing Were Going, Then Of Course I Had To Troll A Few Thrifts. Sadly, This Lamp Was All The Vintage I Could Come Up With. Status: Ready!
Sometimes you can hunt all you like and come up blank. Luckily I found at least ONE cool item while out yesterday! It, of course, was a little bit of a mess when I picked it up. A little bit of elbow grease (and Howards Restore-A-Finish) took care of that!
Funny story, when I walked up to the counter to pay for this the sales person kinda caught her self
and let out a little sigh of relief. She said, "Oh my goodness, the way you were holding that lamp I
thought you were carrying a gun in here!". Hmmm...well, it didn't have a shade on it...and it is
walnut and brass. Still, that'd be a funny looking gun! Certainly not very intimidating. Even the
squirrels might have a laugh should you show up in the woods with it.
The good news is that I had the perfect shade for it waiting at home. I even had the perfect bow to
hold the shade up off the table! I love it when that happens. And to make things even more perfect, a
large table lamp just found it's way out of my booth at The Green Shag Market and this might just be
it's perfect replacement. Oops, I was going to go down there again today but got side tracked. Oh
