I follow #CrazyLampLady on YouTube. She’s a vintage thrifter who stalks the stock at Goodwill and antique malls in Pennsylvania. I believe her name is Jocelyn and flips a lot of minimally priced decorative pieces for a profit. She works on quantity with up ton2 dozen new items flipping in eBay every day. She loves art glass, esp. Murano.
Decorative glass is not even my thing, but I couldn’t stop myself from angling into a booth, moving a display around and flipping over this glass duck that I found while waiting for a fried fish sandwich in a seafood shop.
Sideways glances and curious stares from diners and staff alike didn’t deter me.
I failed to find a makers mark in the not great lighting. Not 100% sure I knew where to look. I just knew I was supposed to look confident and flip the bird over.
Lacking a plan if I did find a mark, I realized that I am in fact an embarrassment.
