Flea Market Friday- Lights out!
I took my kids to our local farmer's market this morning. It's not an open-air market; more like an indoor bazaar with regular shops and an outdoor flea market on Fri & Sat. I had to buy some lettuce and rolls for our Father's Day barbecue, but had kind of forgotten that the flea market was probably going full force in the back. (Don't know how I could've forgotten that- I'm promise it will never happen again!)
So I headed on back just to take a look- you never know what you might find. Oftentimes there isn't anything good, but every once in a while I really score.
I'd been wanting new lamps for the nightstands in our master bedroom forever. (I've been wanting new nightstands too, but that's another story for another day). I hate hate hate the lamps we have now- they're 1980's solid brass lamps that my husband had before we got married (same with the rest of the bedroom suite- probably why I don't like it!)
I always thought they were Stiffels and had been his grandmother's. For some reason that kept me from getting rid of them before. Then recently I mentioned that I wanted something different (aka something vintage, cottage style) and would it really bother him if I got rid of the lamps... which he told me then that he had won from a buddy in a poker game! So I guess there wasn't such an emotional attachment after all.
