Who-who-who doesn’t love an ugly lamp?!!!
The winner of the Junk Bonanza’s Ugly Lamp Contest (featuring the lamps from the spring issue of Flea Market Style magazine) was Mary Strack of Elk River, Minn.!
The owl won it by a 3-to-1 margin, and there were a lot of votes!
Mary received a $100 gift certificate to Home Depot! (where, we are certain, she won’t be purchasing an ugly lamp!)
As part of the Bonanza fun, the lamps were sold by the Junk Revolution store, with proceeds benefitting Arc’s Value Village, a Minneapolis nonprofit that operates thrift stores to benefit people with disabilities.
We’re already thinking about next year’s contest so you can once again exercise the franchise!
I’ll be keeping a lookout for lamps now at thrift shops! Congratulations Mary!
How fun! Hmmm, I think I have one of those ugly lamps in my storage room.
I kind of like the owl lamp!
This made me smile as we have all seen a few horrors in designer stores as well as flea markets.
