But I didn't have to pay $40 for it at any target store. Nope. I got it at goodwill for $9.30. It didn't come with a shade, but I'm confident I can find one for a relatively low price. I loved this lamp when I saw the commercials and now it's all mine!
I found this lamp shade at target for $7. It might be a little too big, but I don't mind. I'm not sure about rules for lamp and shade proportions, but I like it.
I'll tell you what, with the top of the lamp being cracked, it was not easy to get the shade on. It took about 20 minutes and several pieces of duct tape. And still, every time I walk through the room I have to go straighten it. Oh well. I got a $40 lamp (plus whatever it would have cost for a nice shade) for $17. I'll take it.
