It is always funny to see vintage items for sale that you already have or used to have.

Noticed this lovely ornate brass candlestick on etsy from a seller which recently favorited me.

Not only did I see a pair of these at my favorite thrift store about a month ago, but these are identical to two lamps my parents have had since the late 1970s. I’ll have to ask them if they made the lamps themselves or if this is simply a matching item. I ended up not buying them from the thrift store since the ones I saw were not as shiny and my parents don’t really need or use candles.

Several other times I’ve bought things to sell and someone else is already selling them on etsy. Sometimes listing them on the same day I bought it. Strange to think someone on the other side of the country just purchased the same item as me.
