"Pharmacy Lamp Finally Found"

Brass Has Class


I've been yearning for a Pharmacy Lamp for I don't know how long.  It is THE item that tops my thrifting list.  Every time I'm out and about I head straight to the lighting section and hope against hope that one day I'll stumble upon the perfect one.  Pharmacy lamps provide very specific directed light.  In the past they were used by pharmacists who needed well lit workspaces.  The height is typically adjustable, and you can swing the head in different directions towards or way from you as needed.

You see, not all pharmacy lamps are created the same.  They come in a variety of shapes and sizes including floor and desk models. I knew I wanted one with a brass finish and the extended arm.  Much like the $700 Restoration Hardware version pictured here.

Needless to say when I got a text message with this picture attached...

...from my friend Elise on Monday asking if I wanted this thrift beauty for $15, I almost jumped out of my desk and shouted, "Yes!!!"
The finish was beautiful and the lamp (once it was screwed in properly) was in pristine condition.  

I love the fact that it's adjustable in several places.

It's the perfect lamp to have over your shoulder while reading.  In fact, this has become my new morning devotional spot.



They say patience is a virtue, and I'm so glad I held out for this one.  It's PERFECT!  Thanks so much Elise for finding this great deal!  I owe you one.
