Do you remember the pineapple lamp? I bought it at one of the first estate sales I ever went to, back in the summer of 2011, and I rescued it from the landfill, I'm sure. It had a ruined cord and was so dirty and gross that the estate dealer was amazed that I even wanted it. After it was cleaned up and rewired, it was a treasure!
Well, a lady found it on my blog and wanted to know if it was still available. When I replied and told her I still had it, she wanted to know how much I would sell it for... I still owe her a reply. She was so nice about it and it's really a nice feeling to have someone contact you about an item in the blog -- I feel bad that I haven't answered her yet (Goldie, if you're reading this, read on!) The problem is, I don't know if I want to sell it!
I've gotten quite attached to it. Besides the fact that it's an awesome teal and a great mid-century design, it was also one of my first restoration projects when I started going to estate sales. I also use it -- it sits next to my laptop on the counter in the basement that I use as a work-station for selling. So, I could always tell myself that I need to keep it.
On the other hand, I'm supposed to be selling the stuff I find and fix up -- right? It's not as though I can't find another lamp...
What do you think? Should I keep it or sell it?
