antique GE fan

this little number gave me a ‘Shopper’s High’….when i saw it, my heart started pounding and everything around me disappeared. i had to have it. and for $12, who could pass up such a beauty?! love the patina and the fab color. SO COOL. i could totally see this in Pottery Barn…..with a price tag 10 times what i paid!
love the old GE symbol
of course i plan to decorate with it…..those metal blades would not go well with the tiny fingers around here!!

Happy Monday!

    Its too bad that these old fans are so dangerous, they really can put out some air flow! And look so much nicer than new fans.
