This TV appearance for the Metrolina Habitat ReStores made for such a fun (albeit EARLY) morning!
I shopped the ReStore in Gastonia and shared tips on great vintage gift ideas with Wilson of WCCB News Rising. Tons of great gift ideas throughout the store will help you check things off your list this season while giving back and staying green!
Towards the end (7:18) we discuss all things vintage and related to gifting: home décor, summers at Myrtle Beach, Puzzles > Smartphones, mugs & frames and debate whether a *FAB* vintage elf lamp is creepy or cute….

Here I am, defending the lamp to Wilson, which is hidden from view in this pic:
After many offers to purchase said vintage pixie lamp and subsequent refusals, my hubs has now stolen it from me (!!!) to be part of his tiki room kitschy Christmas décor:
And okay so here’s a fab closeup:
Well, I DO still think it’s just completely A-DOR-Able!
SOOOOOOOO…..now I must know what YOU think, dear reader! Are you in the Wilson camp where this lamp is ‘creeping you out’? Or, do you think it’s just the MOST awesome kitschy cute vintage-y goodness and perfection, like moi? I certainly know by now that in vintage (and in life)– one person’s ‘cute’ is typically always another’s ‘creepy’… please comment and let me know!
