Hmmm…that shouldn’t be clearanced out right now. (That’s me thinking to myself.) Then I noticed the writing on the tag. $120 for a lamp at Hobby Lobby? Huh?
And then I saw this tag underneath it. I quickly looked around for the hidden camera. Someone must have been trying to catch my reaction for giggles. There was nothing, so I put it in my cart—still bewildered. Would they really mark it down that much for a finial?
I decided to employ my little one to demonstrate my “quick fix”. Here’s her story–
“I wonder how I can make this lamp work? If my mom’s taught me anything, it’s that I can DIY this.”
“Ah ha! This finial (that cost $2.39 at Lowes) will be the perfect fix!”
“Come here, you mangy lamp shade. You and I are gonna have words.”
“Well would ya looky ther? It worked! I’m pretty sure my mom is a genius, and she’s taught me everything I know.”
A $120 lamp. A $2.39 finial. For $26.39. Boo to the Yah.
Thank you, Hobby Lobby.
