Thrifted Thursday: Atomic Starburst Lamp

I picked up this awesome starburst lamp today at a thrift store. It is the defintion of "atomic starburst" (a phrase that it way over-used IMHO). But in this case it's true.

It really does have a starburst where the base meets the neck, and miracle of miracles, all the points are still intact. The base lights up on its own as well- it is gold-flecked frosted glass, and it even has its original label on the back of the glass globe.

I do need to find the perfect shade for it- a tall skinny one I think. Good thing I'm going thrifting again tomorrow! :)

Oh, and the best part was it was marked down from $5.50 to 99 cents- can't beat that! 


  1. What a find! With a new shade, it will be spectacular. I like your idea of tall and skinny.

  2. Oh man, that is the best lamp ever! I've found a few I 'like' but nothing like this one :)


  3. Wow that is lovely and so pretty all lit up. Enjoy it, dee x

  4. What a steal! I agree a tall skinny sade will do the trick!

  5. It reminds me of a cubist pineapple! Awesome!

  6. Its beautiful and what a bargain!!
