Yesterday was one of my first times OUT of Orange Door Cottage in a couple of weeks. I can't unpack anything else until the studio is done, and I can't paint the studio until Monday. So, I went thrifting. Ah, thrifting. My computer thinks that isn't a word, but it is so! Hang on while I "learn it" in the compu-dictionary. . .
Okey-Dokey (which apparently isn't word either).
When you have my freakishly weird taste and my munchkin-sized budget, you spend a LOT of time on craigslist. I'll frequently do searches with the "max" amount set on like 50 bucks so that I don't get so upset when I see an original Eames Lounger I can't have because it will cost us our firstborn.
All that to say, I have been looking for a 1960s Arc Lamp for years but have refused to pay hundreds or even thousands of dollars for one. Yesterday, I scored one for $50. Thank you craigslist! It needs a little bit of clean-up, but it's a beauty. Thankfully the man likes it too.
ebay, and found a bunch but at $50+ I couldn't just start buying fans left and right. Yesterday, I found this little (working!) General Electric beauty at the McMinnville Goodwill for $14.99. SCORE!
