Additional Policies and FAQs

A Word about Choosing the Right Lampshade:

Most of the lamps I sell do NOT come with a lampshade. There are two main reasons.

First, I only have a very limited number of shades, and many more lamps. I use each shade over and over again to take my photos to give an idea of how a shade will look on each lamp. Often the shade shown may have stains on the back or other damages, or it really isn't right for the lamp overall. I crop my pictures so you can't see that it's way too tall, too wide, etc.

Second is the consideration of additional shipping cost. Most shades are big, and all shades are fairly delicate. Proper packing of a shade takes up a LOT of box space, and may even require a separate box from the lamp itself. Obviously this would increase shipping costs drastically over the base cost of the lamp.

For both reasons, I recommend buying a shade locally that is exactly what you want. Stores like Lowe's and Target offer great looking lampshades at low prices. Also try local thrift stores or antique malls for vintage and antique shades at very reasonable prices. Or, simply repurpose a lampshade you already own!
