As much as I love thriftin',
there are times, what I think is a super deal,
isn't so much of one when I get home and do a little research.
Case in point...
The fruit motif lamp.
Paid $10.00 for it at the Habitat for Humanity Thrift Store.
Needed fresh paint and a lamp shade.
A day later, I saw one very similar at Home Goods,
for $29.99 -- brand new, with a lamp shade included.
Unfortunately, my Good Deal, wasn't so much of a good deal, after I paint and add a shade.
Oh well, you lose a few, but win many --- in thriftin', that is! :)
The ivory vintage metal wall lamps were a Habitat For Humanity find, as well.

And a great large Italian Pottery piece for $1.50.
Much better deal!
