on friday’s i make a quick trip to the reStore while my son is taking piano lessons. today the vintage furniture was non-existent, but they had boxes of scrap fabric 3/$1.00. i only saw one i liked, but didn’t want to use a debit card for 25¢. i wasn’t able to dig into every box at the moment, so i walked over to the lamps until i have full reign. i was about to walk away when i saw this…
it was $4 and even has a light bulb in it! the fancy expensive kind that requires NASA to come out and clean it up if it breaks.
i walked back over to the fabric to give it another look…
as i was sifting a girl came straight up to me and said “awwww, can i see that lamp. i guess you just beat me to it. i love old things from the 50’s”
we talked about vintage things and i even offered her the lamp. she wouldn’t take it.
i was able to find 3 rolls of fabric remnants that i really love. i will use it for wrapping or just keep it in my vintage wire basket with my yarn.
