Someone Stole My Lamp!

The late, great Coco lamp!

MY LUCKY CHARM HAS BEEN STOLEN: Why do people do this? Is it just human nature to steal? Yesterday, while de-staging a home that sold very quickly, I walked into the living room only to notice that one of my lamps from my inventory was gone, more! It was one of my favorite lamps and it held a special place in my heart (like most of my items do!). But this was special - this was the first accessory that I bought when I started my staging business. I bought it on EBay (a pair) and whenever I used it - the home sold quickly! True to form, it did just what it always did - performed beautifully...with a quick sale in the dead of winter!

If anyone knows where I could buy this lamp (I have not found it on Ebay and I've looked many times over the years to purchase another set), I would be ever so grateful. It is called "Coco," but when I search that name on the web, a whole host of things come up - and none of them look like this!
There's a number on the bottom - Cat# CL2148. Date May, 2008. It was made in China. There's also a bar code. Maybe I could find out where to get this if I could read the bar code! If anyone has advice - I'd appreciate it!

Hopefully - someone out there knows where I can buy another one! The investor, whose property it was, told me he would give me the money to buy another one. He was so great to work for - and I appreciate his offer so much.

Does this happen often? Would love to hear from realtors about this. How do you protect the contents of your clients' homes?

Oh so sorry that someone took off with your beautiful lamp. I'll keep my eyes open, but have not seen one like it.

Sorry to hear about your lamp! Really do not understand how can somebody just walk out the door with a table lamp. Hope that you find one soon :)

Thanks everyone for your condolences (sounds silly right?). Sandra - I will try to connect with you - but I went to the link you posted...but I could not find the lamp there.

Linda, it's on page 13. Top right.

Hi again Sandra. Thanks for writing. I did contact them - but I will try again. They said that they had the lamp but it has been discontinued.
