2nd Time Around: Thrift Store Lamp

  Welcome to 2nd Time Around! If you love shopping at antiques stores, flea markets, garage sales, estate sales and thrift stores this is for you! Just create a post featuring something that is ‘new’ to you and link with Mr. Linky below.

This lamp is one that I bought recently at the Hope Village Thrift Store in our town. It may have been donated by a local furniture store, so it may be new. I can’t remember how much I paid for it…I think it was around $20 which is pretty good for a lamp of this quality. It is perfect on the table between our two recliners.

Hi Diane...

First of all, I just want to thank you for hosting "2nd Time Around Tuesday" and giving us the chance to display our "2nd time around" treasure finds!!! I really hit the jack-pot with my last shopping trip to the thrift store so hopefully I'll be participating for the next few weeks!

My friend, you did well in finding that fabulous lamp and for just $20? I'm impressed!!! It's unique with it's pretty two columns and I love all of the ornate detailing! Your living room is gorgeous and this new lamp fits in perfectly!!! So happy for you and your new treasure find!

Warmest wishes,
Chari
