hey look at me! I'm a dumbass!
this post was meant to go in the new phillyyardsale community.
put it there now.
*sigh*


FIRST POST!
hehe...

this is my favorite yardsale score ever, from a yardsale on 47th street just south of baltimore ave. in the spring of 2003.



Orange velvet lapshade, and the thing is about 4 feet tall and 30-40 pounds. It's got 4 little lanterns hanging off of it, each with a light bulb (that doesn't light at the moment). Unfortunate the wiring inside is screwy, and last time I plugged it in I got a good 110 volts running through my body. whee!
but damn is it too cool. ^_^
mood: amusedamused
music: office chatter

If you decide you want help rewiring it, talk to Marlin from... shit, i can't remember his house name. But you can get his phone number from the coop.

I'm a DIY fiend, and have plenty of experience rewiring things.
The only problem with this one is that it's REALLY hard to take the thing apart. Usually lamps unscrew really easily, but this one's a beast. If I could get it apart I could rewire it in my sleep. ;o)

That's what i thought, but it never hurts to know there's someone you can call.

Hey... can you show me how to splice a cord? I understand the idea, but have never done it outside sixth grade science.

Oh my god. Was that a yard sale from a bordello or something? I'm joking, but I mean, wow, that's a lamp.

ain't it marvy?
the story behind it is that the selling owner moved into her apartment with only that lamp and it's sister (same style and shade, different details, no lanterns) and NOTHING ELSE. one bag of clothes, no furniture or bed, just those two lamps.
I thought that was pretty cool. ;o)
*edit* hey look at me! I'm a dumbass! this post was meant to go in… - another LJ. or: how i learned to stop worrying and love this life-thingy
