New find at a new vintage store....

Today after lunch, I somehow persuaded my husband to let me stop in to check out a store near home which is a resale shop (Jodi's off Northland/Plainfield). It has been there a few years now and I never bothered dropping in to check it out. It turns out there is quite a bit of vintage furniture as well as other things and has openned a second space in the same strip mall. I found a few things I might 'need' in the future and almost skipped out on the second space but I'm glad I didn't. I found a small straw hat lampshade that I have been covetting since I saw one on a 'Clean House' episode. I couldn't believe that the woman got rid of such a unique lamp and lampshade! So now I have the straw hat lampshade alongside my top hat lampshade. Could this be the beginning of a new collection?!


  1. It could very well be the beginning of a lamp collection. I have never seen one like these. They are neat, and I can see why you would want them.

  2. Very fun. I really like the start of your lampshade collection. I haven't been on Plainfield in ages. I'm always on the hunt for a new store!!
