Shop Tour: The Shade Shop

I thought I snapped a bunch of pictures at the Shade Shop the other day, but I didn't. I did take a picture of the finial display, the workroom table where we played with the shade options, and the shade room.

A year ago, I wrote about Hillman Electric, the lighting store in my hometown where we shopped for lamps. While my mother shopped, I used to stare at the finials. They were in a round display case that had a motor that spun the rack around. Maybe that's why I'm drawn to finials...they're totally unnecessary, but so nice to have.

The shade rooms are pretty big...the options are pretty extensive.


  1. First of all, your lamp 'revamp' looks great - and I would love to get myself into this store! I have yellowy shades on my bedroom lamps, I have been looking for white drum shades everywhere.

  2. What I wouldn't give to have a shop like this closeby! But, I have disagree... as a HUGE lamp lover I think finials are as important as the base and the shade!! A finial can make/break a great lamp! Oh, and you should see my finial drawer;)!
