My mom just found this antique lamp at a thrift shop recently. Retro styled lamps are in style and I’ve been seeing similar lamps in design magazines, blogs and online.

What a find, she bought this lamp for only $15.00 at a local thrift shop. When I first saw the lamp I thought she bought it at a high end boutique because it looks expensive. The funny this is that, she told me the lamp shade cost more then the lamp.

She purchased the lamp shade at Target for $35.00.
