I really wrestled over these lamps.
If I should get them, or not
Why, you ask?
They are mid-century, sort of nice, but nothing too special.
Well, my folks had these very lamps when I was a kid.
Ours were a dark green, and I love these in pink. They would have gone in the master bedroom where the others had been.
I saw the matching lampshades, a pair, not too long ago on eBay.
But didn't get those, either. If I had, I would have grabbed these. The last time I saw a pair, they were in turquoise, and the seller wanted $200 for the pair. Uh, yeah, right. No thanks.
Trouble with these was, the seller had a poor rating of 98%, and I am tired of getting bum deals on eBay!!
I might be able to find the matching shades eventually, but as much as I wanted to buy for sentimental reasons... I let these pass. Sigh.
Have you ever bought things based on sentiment alone?
