GREAT LAMP OR WORLD'S GREATEST LAMP?

Let the debate begin...

You may want to ruminate your consideration over this.

Talk amongst yourselves....

Is it wrong that I'm trying to incorporate that lamp into my apartment right now? "Maybe I'll spray paint it white and put it in the living room...."

@ Jessica

I guess we all have that holy grail of dream lamps. Mine, naturally involves a certain bug-eyed monster from a certain 70s kids show.

@ katherine

Incorporate away. But why not consider a nice coat of day-glo rainbow colors?

Totally dependent on what type of lampshade is used.

Tell me you BOUGHT it?!!! I am decoupaging a lamp shade with vintage sheet music in my head as I type. It would be godawful and fabulous!!!

Paper Dolls for Boys said...

Seriously, I am in pain now because I do not own that lamp. I've changed my mind on the lampshade.

I've decided to spray paint it a fabulous lime green and match it with a black shade. I WANT IT NOW!

An exciting new thrift store has opened up in New Jersey, benefitting the nonprofit Soldiers', Sailors', Marines', Coast Guard and Airmen's Club. I copied the press release below, as I thought it may be of interest to you. Any mention of it on your blog would be much appreciated! Thanks, and feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

Kindest Regards,

SOLDIERS’, SAILORS’, MARINES’, COAST GUARD AND AIRMEN’S CLUB (SSMAC) OPENS NEW THRIFT STORE

Encore Thrift Store Located Near Military Installations in New Jersey to Provide Shoppers Paradise for Military Families and Other Smart Shoppers
*****
There’s a new shop on the thrift shop block! And sales proceeds will benefit Soldier’s, Sailors, Marine’s Coast Guard and Airmen’s Club (SSMAC) www.ssmac.org, a non profit, one of a kind organization that’s been providing safe, affordable accommodations to active military, veterans, emergency responders and their families since 1919!
Whether it be warm gloves, a designer gown, tinsel for your Christmas tree or an unusual birthday or holiday gift, you’ll find it at the Encore Thrift Shop, 1220 Route 166, Stella Plaza, Toms River, New Jersey- tel.-(732) 505-0062. Strategically located near three military installations, McGuire Air Force Base, Fort Dix and Lakehurst Naval Station, Encore will provide a shopper’s paradise not only for military families but for the cost-conscious consumer in these troubled financial times. The thrift store, now accepting donations, is especially configured to look like an attractive, elegant shop where finding the item you’re looking for is easy and browsers are very welcome.
Encore is the brainchild of SSMAC executive director Hazel Cathers, who for many years operated the USO Thrift Store as part of her duties at the USO. When she came to SSMAC, located in two Victorian townhouses in the Murray Hill section of Manhattan, she felt that the Club needed another mechanism to raise funds to keep up its mission of serving those who serve us in the military. Calling upon her daughter in law, Jennifer Cathers, with her thrift shop know- how, Hazel and Jennifer scouted out a location for this new venture where both felt it could do the most geographic good-near military families. Even by just word of mouth, customers are starting to take advantage of bargains. Plans are also underway to feature “items of the week” that can be purchased on the SSMAC website.
And because it benefits a charity that’s based in Manhattan, those with items to donate (gently used clothing, furniture, appliances, books,) can drop them at SSMAC at 283 Lexington Avenue (between 36th and 37th Streets) or in cases of larger donations, have them picked up. Donations are, of course, accepted at Encore Thrift Store itself and are tax deductable.

@ paper dolls

Well, not to be a foul tempter, but I noticed it was still at the Salavation Army yesterday, with a couple of people chuckling at it but no takers. If I see it next week, it may have to go in my office.

Visty said...

Now the joke isn't even funny.

Uncle Deetou said...

Well, I've certainly seen the light...

Beethoven is cool, but I like my Davy Crockett lamp better: http://www.flickr.com/photos/baikinange/2338520121/

@baikinange

That's way weird cool.

Who would win in a fight, Crockett or Beethoven?

Miss Alex said...

I need this lamp... please tell my you'll sell it to me LOL

The Fiji Mermaid said...

Enik, Do you have any idea where to find a Beethoven lamp like that? After seeing your blog post I expected a quick Google search would yield a ton of them, but I'm unable to find anything like that.

sewingchick said...

AWESOME! I'm a music teacher though, so I may be a little biased. Two summers ago I found a Beethoven shirt at a garage sale. Score! If I had that lamp, my shrine would be complete.

P.S. Everyone knows that his seventh symphony, not the fifth, was his best :)
