This week I’m showing off two fabulous finds. This brass engraved floor lamp was at a Salvation Army store in a nearby town for the regular price of $6. Because it just happened to be yellow tag day I got it for half price. A measly $3. Take a look.
I don’t know anything about it, and I can’t find any markings on it anywhere that could help me identify it. It definitely looks vintage, but I’m not sure. I’ve tried to do research on the Internet, but I haven’t had any luck. If anyone can help me with this that would be fantastic!
The lamp is about 5′ tall and in great condition.
The yellow tag said it worked, but I didn’t care whether it worked or not. It was coming home with me the moment I saw it. I asked the man at the counter to hold it for me while I was finished shopping so no one else could scoop it up.
He said the lamp had been there for quite awhile and nobody seemed to want it. I still can’t believe that! I think it’s so beautiful. No makeover for this baby, and no clean up either. I love the brass patina just the way it is, and I wouldn’t want to do any damage to the colouring in the engraving.
I’m not too sure about the lampshade though. I’ll live with it for now, but it might just be getting a makeover in the future.
My second great find is this set of shabby chic stacking tables that were at the local Cancer Society Thrift Store for $15. That’s more than I would usually pay, but I really loved them and my instinct was telling me to buy them. My instinct isn’t always right, but it’s right enough that I’ve learned to trust it.
They’re totally unmarked, but I’ve since seen a very similar set of three on ebay for $350. and another set on Etsy for $260. Too bad I don’t have all three in this set. It looks like they’re vintage Italian Florentine nesting tables. No makeover for these either. I love them just the way they are.
I just love thrifting! Have you found any treasures lately?
