It Always Pays to Recycle!!

  In the middle of the seach for parts and supplies for a dining table lamp I came across this gem.... a Flos Model 2097-30 chandelier! Very excited to find the lamp unassembled in its original box I asked the attendant at the recycling center (yes a recycling center!!) how much for this light here, he looks at it shugs and says 150 SEK or about $25! The Flos 2097 retails for around 12,000 SEK which is about $1800 USD. Recycling centers, flea markets and thrift stores are always a great resource. Just remember it pays to recycle!
