    I'm guessing he doesn't really want to sell the lamp?

    I was gonna go for it but, the $10 shipping stopped me.

    Aah etsy, always a good time.

    Occasionally when I start to have to much faith in humanity I do this search

    http://www.etsy.com/search?includes[0]=materials&q=rusty+nails&order=price_desc&page=0

    Not to be disappointed I see a large pile of rusty nails for $52 and this gem
    http://www.etsy.com/listing/105839273/rusty-nails-beach-metal-vintage-set-of-3

    Three large rusty (really rusty) nails, $22.

    Simply lovely

    Hmm...shop owner's last name is "Levine"...where have I heard that name before. Sounds like it could be worth the price if he's related to the other one I know of.
