So excited about my newest consignment store jade lamp find! I was looking for something interesting to place in the center of my dining room table when I stumbled upon this beautiful jade lamp at my local consignment store this weekend. So fun! The green jade lamp was sitting right up front when I walked in the store and it was the first thing I saw. I grabbed it immediately and while hauling the 50 pound piece up front the ladies mentioned they were thrilled that I was purchasing the special piece. I’m always taking a peek to see what interesting and unique things have been brought to the store and as a result I’m familiar to with those who work there and what new things they are showcasing. I love anything with a history and just knowing that someone has owned something prior to me makes it so much more meaningful to me. A little later I was told that this lamp had been previously owned by a College President, a world traveler who brings back many interesting items with every journey. Moving back East she needed to unload a few cumbersome heavy items and this lamp was one of those pieces. Couldn’t believe my luck! The jade lamp couldn’t be more perfect in my entry and after making it mine… painting the black base a rubbed silver and adding a new shade… it’s the piece I realize I’ve been missing. What a wonderful weekend! I think I have stated that I love this lamp a hundred times at the very least!
