Light Up With Vintage Lamps

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.

  1. I love the vintage lamp with the fringe! I have a vintage floor lamp I inherited from my Grandmother. Its very pretty although I small piece of the gold (gold in color, I can’t imagine it’s real gold–maybe brass) has become dislodged. I am sure there are places that fix vintage lamps near me. It’s one of those non-urgent things on my to-do list. 🙂


    1. I love that lamp, too, Susan. It actually belonged to the previous owners of our house and the minute I saw it, I fell in love with it. I love the detail in it. It makes me smile.

      I understand completely about the missing piece on your lamp. So many of our pretty antiques look great at a glance, but if you look closely, you’ll see many flaws. But, to me, it just adds to their charm that they can be flawed but beautiful at the same time.
