understand that we make all of our lamp shades, in house.
We don't have someone else make our shades and put our name on them.
Back in 1972, my father decided he could make his own lamp shades. So he did!
46 years later and we are still going strong. When you purchase lamp shades

Are you looking for something that is

...well, you've found it!
Some of the lamp supplies that we offer may be

We do not make our glass shades but almost all of the Opal & hand painted glass lampshades we sell are
made in the U.S.A. by Davis-Lynch Glass in West Virginia.

We were absolutely delighted to celebrate our 50th anniversary in 2006. And now, as we move along, it seems harder and harder for independent family businesses to survive in today's business world. We realize that the quality of our work and our customer service is so important, but customer loyalty through repeat business and satisfied customers referring others to us, is most important. We are also pleased that several media outlets shared our recent Golden Anniversary with their audience. Please take the opportunity to view the following media links and see how they have shared our story.
