I had been admiring this handsome fellow for months over at Flutter, but the $45 price tag was too rich for my blood. So you can understand my delight when I found him sitting on the $10 clearance shelf on Saturday afternoon. He still had his $45 price tag on him, so when I got up to the cash register, I said, “I found this on the $10 shelf. Was he supposed to be there?” and the nice shop girl said, “Actually, he was supposed to be in the $5 bin!” Hot damn!
I suspect he was marked down so low because his little light bulb burned out. Luckily I happened to have a brand new light bulb* that was a perfect match, and he works perfectly now. I must say, he looks very adorable perched on top of my sewing table.
I don’t know much about vintage rubber animal lamps, and I can’t seem to find any information online**. If you know anything about them, please share!
