A new antique market opened last week, so I stopped in to take a peek. There were only a few booths open. Just your regular flea market clutter and such. I was quick to stroll through and look for any goodies. On a shelf tucked between the beer steins and McDonald's glasses this gem caught my eye.
Vintage Irmi...for just a few dollars...be still my heart.
Gorgeous muted yellow, felt brim hats and hankies. Choo- choo chains and doxie dogs.
Stunning little blossoms adorn the engine. Little yellow ball feet lift the base off the table.
How could you not love this gorgeous little art from the past. Yet, there it was amongst the ilk from the 70's with a price tag that didn't do it justice...lucky for me. I have yet to give it a fitting lampshade. Although, it promptly found a spot in my studio and was graced with light. Very fitting that I was bidding on another Irmi lamp on eBay that was not listed under Irmi. I thought I could sneak in and get it cheap. So did someone else. This made it all okay.
