I only went to one estate sale this weekend - after I fooled around with the Flair oven for a few hours I stopped by a sale that had a set of four Salterini patio chairs and a table. Of course, the set was marked sold by the time I got there.
Anyway, the estate featured a TON of bells. Someone had amassed a huge collection, and for the 15 minutes I was there Saturday, little kids and all kinds of people were dinging bells - cute for the first minute, excruciating for the next 14. I picked up a few smalls, and before I left I spotted a pair of pole lamps which were turned on, and amid all the bell display cases it was easy to miss them.
So today I went back for half-price Sunday and luckily, they were still there! Score!! I even got the working light bulbs in the deal.
This first one is brass, with heavy, ball-shaped shades. It needs some polishing, but everything works.
The second tension lamp is black and brass, with bullet-shaped shades. It also works, but it seems to be too tall for the basement, so I may have to move some things around to find a place for it upstairs.
