Repurposed Vintage S & H Green Stamps Stamp Dispenser Lamp

Hey friends.  You know I love making lamps so I had a blast with this one.  It carries a lot of childhood memories for me.  My mother and grandmother would go by the green stamp store after collecting the stamps in the grocery store and would trade them toward household goods.  I told myself if I ever ran across one of the stamp dispensers, I was going to make a lamp out of it.  Well -- it happened!  

I even freed up the gears inside so the black rings could spin that once determined how many stamps were issued.  

See it at Timeline Antiques in Shreveport, LA or in my GadgetSponge Etsy Shop!

Measurements:  Height 30"; Width 9" (16" with shade); Depth 8" (16" with shade).

Thanks so much Chad! I actually kept this one since I had such fond memories of going to the S&H store with my mother and grandmother. Thx for dropping in!
