Alabaster Lamp UPDATE!!

IMG_9989

I posted about this beautiful alabaster lamp base a few days ago…

Remember when I said:

“This alabaster lamp base was the one thing that I really hated to leave behind. It was a little bit more than I want to spend when I’m on a limited budget. Especially when I don’t really need a lamp. But it was SOOO cute. Such a sweet size, so perfectly carved. I was worried about the wiring, but that’s something that could easily be fixed, right?”

So, on my way to the beach today, I stopped by the Antiques Market to see if I could pick it up. I checked my cell phone photo to see if I could find where it was, based on the other items that were near it and…

It was gone.

Only the ceramic dog and decorative bowl remained. Gahhhhhhhhh! I even went to the cashier, who regretfully informed me that it had sold. Why didn’t I hide it amongst the other crap??? I looked at all of the other treasures that I posted, and everything was still in EXACTLY the same spot! Nothing had sold. I’m convinced nothing in the whole place sold, except my beloved alabaster lamp base 😦

I did find very similar ones online, but the point was that this would be a souvenir from Charleston. It was the special hidden treasure that I found. Uggghhh! That’s what happens when you don’t buy a one-of-a-kind item right away…

Note To Self: BUY EVERYTHING!
