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