Years ago when we owned an antique mall, we bought a box lot of vintage lamps for a ridiculously cheap price. They were hideous. We laughed at how ugly they were. And yet, miraculously, they all sold.
When we began buying props for Summer of ’67 we thought about those lamps as we found ourselves purchasing very similar styles. Only, this time, I liked them. I’m not sure what it is, but what I once hated, I now see the beauty in, and even though we’ll be selling many of the vintage items we bought for the movie, I’ll be holding on to a lot of the lamps. They’re just too fun to get rid of.
