Thrift Share: Aladdin's Magical Lamp


My brother has come to the dark side, he's now a thrifter. He was that guy who couldn't buy anything used. It had to be all new video games, movies, clothes, and electronics. He'd rely on credit if necessary. Slowly but surely, he's realized the virtues of second hand shopping.

This ceramic lamp from Disney's Aladdin was a random thrifted gift from my brother. It brings back memories of our living room in Italy. My (twin) older brothers and I had just finished watching Aladdin. We all looked at each other, then promptly hit rewind on the VHS so we could watch it again. I'll think of that moment every time I admire this lamp at home.

Did you go thrifting this weekend? What did you find? I wasn't feeling to well on Sunday, my new thrifting day. I braved a couple of flea markets before I had to go home (empty handed) to rest.

  3. Jessica: You'll get the hang of it now that you have a cute little kit to use.

    Miss Lou: The lamp is about 4.5 - 5 inches long, it looks like an accurate translation of the movie scale.

  5. CRY: Hell yes, I did rub the lamp and wish and Genie would come out. Maybe not Disney's Genie, though.

    Keeping up with him would be exhausting.
