I Picked Up Another Danish Modern Three Light Pendant Monday Before Work. It Was A Late Night Craigslist Find That I Should Have Found And Snatched Saturday. Status: All's Well That End Well.
This fixture is another one of those killer items that got overlooked by everybody on craigslist...
including me! I had been listed early Saturday afternoon and I didn't spot it until late Sunday evening. I hate it when that happens.
I just found a home for the last Three Light Pendant I featured here! Now I've got another. This one
has been freshly rewired and is in great shape, ready to be installed. I had to meet the seller out in
west county early Monday morning before work as I wanted to make sure I didn't get snaked on this.
I'm getting snaked a little more often these days as I'm a little less serious about many of the
purchases I make a play for. I just don't have much room for anything but the best finds right now
so I haven't been giving it my...best shot, shall we say. But sometimes you just get lucky, and
snatching this up was just exactly that...luck!
After securing the vintage fixture I stopped in at a couple of thrifts in the area that I don't always
remember to check on my weekend scouting trips. At one of the thrifts I found the Dorothy Thorpe
style silver rim champagne flutes I featured yesterday. At another I found...nothing, but at the last I
picked up these spare globes! The three matched milk glass tapers are threaded for some kind of
brass holder that I'm sure was on a tension pole. The one round globe, I'm not sure.
I feel like I recently read a blog post somewhere about how difficult it is to find round globes like this
that don't have a mounting flange...so I bought it just in case. I bought all four "just in case". I'm
sure I would have kicked myself if I hadn't bought them all. You know how it goes. You see half of
something cool at one thrift...fail to buy it, and see the other half a week later at another. Fail. Not
