I scored some great 50s lamps at the flea market. I am so excited about them! The first, a dual shade floor lamp (excuse dark photography) was very reasonably priced at the outset, considering that many 1950s items are commanding insane prices these days. I cannot wait for that trend to end, but that's another story. Anyhow, upon spying these lamps at the flea I had to have a conference with the Saint regarding (a) would he kill me if I bought them and (b) would they fit into the small convertible we were driving. (I swear he chose that car for the flea on purpose so I couldn't buy much). While said conference was in session the lamp seller came over the volunteered a LOWER PRICE!!! I couldn't get the money out fast enuf, believe me! WOOHOO!!!
Some vintage tins on display in the bathroom.
Now, a word of WARNING. If you ever find yourself going to Rehoboth Beach, Del, avoid this hotel like the plague: The Breakers. I have never been to a bigger sh*thole in my life. Total nightmare. Long story, this is where the wedding guests were imprisoned for a wedding I had to go to, and in my deluxe vintage inspired dress, no less. (see previous post for info on dress) Words cannot describe the indignity! The dress was a hit, by the way, Considering just about all the women there were dressed like strippers ( regardless of age, I must add) my modest dress created quite a stir. I collected a slew of compliments. back to my original point, with regard to this hotel, sleep in your car, sleep in the gutter, sleep anywhere but this dump.
