You may remember the other day I made a plea to my readers (yes, you) to help me place a value on this monstrous candelabra:
Nobody came through with anything. No worries…I just thought maybe there was an antique candelabra expert among my lovely friends. I decided I didn’t want to mess with the thing any longer so I took it in to a local antique shop for an expert’s opinion. Guess what? She really didn’t know either. She offered to consign it for me but as we were talking about the specifics of how this is done, something caught my eye in the far off yonder. When she saw my interest in her gorgeous lamp she offered a trade. I said, “done!”. Did I lose money? Maybe. I don’t really care. What I do know is that I lost an item that wasn’t being used and gained a great vintage lamp for my foyer.
It is a little too bad that the outlet is out so far from the table but it will only be plugged in when in use.
I love bartering.
