FINALLY found me one! It looks so groovy in my office, I just can't tell you! Oh, and I got if for only $32, what a steal! I'm swag-happy!











Oh I love this. I never seem to find swag lamps in good enough shape to warrant paying the asking price for them.

Bongo you got such a good deal and it looks great!

My latest acquisition in the chunky resin lamp genre:
I decided my bathroom needed one such light to create a more cosmic, "meditative" mood...



"Handcrafted in California by House of Mosaics":



Aaaaah! Super-chunky goodness!:



...made from rare and toxic plastic compounds!:

And that Sven is awesome also!! Maybe if I think about it hard enough I will stumble upon one of these somewhere in the wild that is of the same caliber.

I actually have room to hang stuff in my place (as oppossed to wall space left!) so I am actively seeking one of these out.

Great finds!
