Nashville, Tennessee | 1,001 Sales

Announcement    Good News Y'all,
My shop is Open again
- after my extended break for most of 2019.
My Goal for the rest of 2020, is to make my Artwork,
which was once listed in Physical Form as Shippable Prints,
Immediately Available for you to Digitally Download at $10 Each.

Once Purchased, you instantly own the downloaded file,
and then, you can download my artwork,
and it will be yours in very High Resolution.
you can make your own prints at home,
have it made into a gallery Wrap Canvas on another website,
or through a local print shop in your hometown, or print it onto a shirt, or coffee mug.
Buy the file Here on Etsy.com from my Shop, and use it over and over!

If you have seen my artwork on another Website,
or listed here before and it is not here now,
& you wish it was still available for download,
Contact me, or Send me a Direct Message,
and I will do my best to find it for you in my Archives.

Now,
here is The not so Good News, Y'all,
Due to things being what they are,
All of my Hand Made Tramp Lamps
and any other physical items -
Such as, all of my little original Paintings,
including any and all other small oddities
I have been making, and have had listed,
won't be ReListed for sale in my shop,
Nor will I be shipping out any physical Items Until further Notice.
Because that is the safest thing for me, for you, and for all of us.

However, Some more Good News is
I have redesigned my Website:

https://tramplamps.com

It includes a vast Photographic Library of my Lamp Archive
from 2003-Until Present day that, I hope, is much easier
and more pleasing for someone to scroll through than the former Archives
of +1300 Hand Made Lamps.
Also on the new website, you can find A Gallery of my Original Artwork:

https://tramplamps.com/photos

This image collection (linked above) will hopefully serve as a reference guide
to any of you who are perhaps looking for a particular Painting in print form
that you would like to purchase as a large scale digital download.
I am happy to help make that happen for you.
Right now, getting my artwork out to you in an affordable form is something that I want to make happen for you, but I want it to be done safety, and as easily as I can, and this way, you know you are getting it from the artist herself, which should be a fun and cool thing, right?

I will begin listing and sending out Hand Made Tramp Lamps, Physical Prints, small original Paintings, and other items that once were listed in my shop to you when It is safe for you to receive them from me.
If you feel you need or want to inquire about anything from how my artistic process is coming along, or what I am working on, or how my daily creative processes are going or not going, for yourself and for me, please feel free to send me a message.
I will always do my absolute best to reply to you.

About Tramp Lamps:
I crafted my first Tramp Lamp in 2003. I knew it was something unique and had great potential for me creatively. I researched the idea thoroughly to be certain I was not copying someone else's process or concept.* Once I was certain that nothing like it had been made before, I proceeded with the development and launched my website with a small collection of lamps that were all one of a kind. They sold out within the first 2 weeks.

As you are reading this, I've made well over 1300 unique Lamps. You can many of the lamps I made and sold over the years on the new photos page of my redesigned website gallery here:
https://tramplamps.com/photos
I have had the good fortune to be endorsed by founders of major lingerie companies, as well as complemented by the Heiress of a legendary American undergarment empire that was named after her when she was just a baby.

PLEASE, KEEP IT UNIQUE.
If you see anyone else making anything that resembles my Tramp Lamps in any way, please let them know about www.TrampLamps.com

Even after all these years, I still love finding antique, Vintage, and used garments to alter, illuminate, and decorate for lighting to sell all over the Earth. I really hope that If you were to find one of my creations perfect for your decor, that you would feel the same way.
I love making TRAMP LAMPS and I love making art.
This is my full time job; I make it, I pack it, and I stand in line at the post to ship it.
I want you to love it & to be happy with it.
Shipping Information:
*The time between the printing of all international and domestic shipping labels and when it is 1st scanned by a courier are not simultaneous. Please keep this in mind when receiving my shipping notices through Etsy and tracking info on 3rd party websites such as fedex.com.

~ Remember, when you purchase from my shop, you are supporting me as an Artist and a person, just like you. There are no employees, and there is no Tramp Lamps machine, it is and has always been just Me. This is my full-time job & how I support myself.

I thank you so very much!

xoxo
~Kelly

The history of Tramp Lamps is written out on my web site, www.tramplamps.com
Please visit my site to find out all about these unique creations.

Each Tramp Lamp :
-Is Handmade from Used or Vintage clothing, therefore imperfections in the fabric are natural.
- Is One of a kind.
-Is Made for Indoor use Only.
-Are hanging Lamps: Made to be displayed by their included Padded hanger.
-Comes with a Bulb and 6 foot click switch cord both supplied by Westinghouse.
- New LED and CFL Replacement bulbs are great alternatives for Tramp Lamps and can be purchased at your local lighting retailer. Not all *LED and *CFL bulbs work with the cords provided, so please take this under advisement. I suggest contacting me before a bulb for the cord I provide.

** I do not provide LED or CFL bulbs with all standard purchases at this time. But I am making the transition to these bulbs permanently through my distribution supplier at Westinghouse. They are so much more expensive than the ones I've been using, but they really are the right way to go for the lamps.
* *If you actually read all of this before you made a lamp purchase, please say so in the buyers notes on your invoice and I will send your an assortment of bulbs including a LED bulb for your new Tramp Lamp!

Returns and exchange details
All sales are final- Unless the lamp arrives damaged or is not the same lamp as was pictured. If you are unhappy with your lamp for some aesthetic reason, we can discuss options at that time.

I do not want anything but a completely Positive Feedback score from each customer. Therefore I will do what I can to make sure you get the lamp you desire. We are in this together and I want to make you happy.
Payment
-I accept payments through Etsy's Payment System at this time. (Thank you Etsy, for making the payment process so much easier than it used to be!!)

You must complete your orders through Etsy to receive your awesome cool stuff. This is how transactions work. It's all part of the part of the process in completing your order through Etsy. Your browser may be redirected to PayPal if you have to connect your PayPal to Etsy, if you use PayPal with this website. Read the official Etsy payment FAQ. Yes, do this. It's cool, That is probably what is supposed to happen.

Remember also :
I am not Etsy, I'm just an artist who uses their services to sell my silly creations and I never see your personal payment info.

If you need to make specific payment arrangements with me, send me a conversation so we can discuss the matter further and perhaps make a private listing for the item, thereby making a payment plan.

Neither you nor I want to have problems with any business dealings; not here on Etsy .com or anywhere we make purchases. I want the best possible experience each time I sell something to someone and I want you, the customer, to love what I make and to honor the creative exchange. This is why payment is always due at time of purchase.

I want nothing less than a great review from you when you receive my artwork. If you aren't able to give that to me, let me know immediately and I will do everything I can to fix it.
Shipping
- For Lamp orders within the United States I use Fed Ex ground services. Your tracking info is sent to you through Etsy once I have created and paid for the shipping label, but the movement of your actual package does not start at the same time. Once you see activity in the tracking link of your order that moves beyond the creation of the label and that it has left the original sorting facility, usually that indicates fed ex has it on a truck specifically destined for your location.
I really like the new intergraded service that Etsy has for Fed Ex. usually ship at the beginning of the week. If you place an order on Friday- Sunday, your lamp will not be shipped until Monday or Tuesday of the following week. Most shipments arrive within 5 business days. +++FED EX WILL NOT DELIVER TO A PO BOX+++

For all non-Tramp Lamp items, I still use Etsy's delightful Shipping label system and standard USPS priority shipping services.

-International Lamp Orders are also shipped via United States Postal Service. I use priority mail with insurance. Each delivery destination is different, but for example, a lamp shipped to Canada usually arrives within 7 business days.

+++YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR DUTIES AND CUSTOMS FEES+++ for more information on these fees, you can contact your local postal office. If they need specific box dimensions and weight in order to give you a proper quote, please contact me.
Additional policies and FAQs
