Antique Store Junkie


I am a big fan of antique stores. The things you find at such stores may not always be in impeccable condition but that's fine by me :) I found this amber colored mid century lamp at an antique store close to home. The wiring needs a bit of work and there is a tiny scratch on the glass. However, I am not one to be disheartened easily:) The wiring is now in place and the scratch is hardly noticeable!

These pre-loved treasures can be pretty inexpensive if you know where to look! Sometimes you can get incredibly lucky and find something really striking. I was fortunate enough to find a pair of these lamps.....Yay!! They have now settled in beautifully into my home :) This is just a quick phone picture of the lamp, I will share more pictures later.

Are you an antique store junkie? What are some of the most amazing things you have found at antique stores and flea markets. I would love to know??

Keep on smiling and have a lovely day!

Hello Anu....Oh, definitely I am an antique store , and thrift store, and estate sale junkie. I even found two amber glass lamps once in Arizona. My daughter shipped them for me to Massachusetts! They are still in my bedroom on a dresser. I love them. That's why I can't wait to see the tops of your lamps! Mine have frilly amber glass tops! Gorgeous. Just like in a western bordello. ha haha Susan

Your lamp was a great find. I like antique stores, thrift shops and junk stores too. My favorite find so far is a set of transferware dishes that I bought from a junk store. The price for the whole set was less than I've seen for one piece.Thanks for stopping by,have a wonderful day.
