The booty breakdown: yellow ginger jar lamp ($4), parakeets ($4), oil painting ($1), lamp bases (two for $6) and artichoke ($1). I can't wait to find a home for it all.
The brass lamp bases remind me of the vintage wheat-sheaf lamps and sconces I keep seeing in the magazines. I remembered I had just bought these black lamp shades (with gold interiors) at another tag sale over Mother's Day weekend.Brand new shades with the original price tag for $35 each, the very nice lady sold them to me for $3 each. So, I paired them up and I think they were made for one another. What do you think?
I plan on fixing up the bases a bit, but overall I like how they turned out. For a total coast of $6/lamp (including a brand new lampshade), I'd say that isn't too bad! I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend. I'm signing off until next week. Happy tag sale shopping!
