Goo Goo for Gourd

As you probably know by now lighting can be quite pricey. Gourd lamps can start at $200 and go up past $500. The fabulous feature of a gourd though, is that it will blend with almost any style and last through the years with timeless elegance. They are well worth the initial investment. Once you buy it you'll use it forever without having to switch it out with an 'updated' shape or style...a great gourd is always in style! I've done some looking and found a few that offer style and savings, check them out here.
