Thrifts of Terror: The Contender

This could definately be a contender for the Kentucky State Fair's Ugly Lamp Contest
Seriously, with the right shade this has blue ribbon potential.


Seen at the Orange, CT Goodwill

  2. I think we just sold the perfect shade for that lamp last weekend at our garage sale. We got it as part of a lot at auction, and it was hideous. I thought the scariest thing was that someone paid good money for that shade, but if you tell me those are orange plastic roses in that lamp, I'll have to concede that it's the hands-down winner for fugly.

  3. Oh yes Dana, those ARE orange plastic roses. Made even uglier by being put under cut glass. I can't even imagine what the shade for this thing would look like.

    Vinyl Whores, I think I know which shade you are talking about.

  7. Holy shizzle. I saw two of these at one of our Goodwills the other day. They were either yellow or pink, the flowers inside. I was thinking, "I've seen those somewhere before!" It was here on your blog. Now I remember! Hell's bells, I'm Eartha with a Kitsch at the end and I'm not sure that I could stomach those lamps in my home.
