Quotes from Our Clients

The shade has arrived and it's the most beautiful of the three I have bought from you.  I'm so thrilled with it I can't wait for my friends to see it.  Thank you so much for making this one.  I love it. Peggy


"I ended up giving the restored/repaired lampshade to her 2 weeks early.  She was very happy with the results and was impressed that the same designer material was found. Thank you again for all your help and keeping well within the timeframe I initially requested. In regards to lampshade restoration/repair, "Vintage Shades" is my point of reference." Paul

I received the lampshades a few days ago.  I couldn't be more pleased with the way they turned out.  The colors are beautiful and the craftsmanship and materials, excellent.  Thanks so much for taking such care with my order.  The shades are a work of art.
Sincerely yours, Nannette

Just a quick note to let you know that I have received the lamp shade.  It is absolutely beautiful and matches very nicely in the guest bedroom.  I almost can't take my eyes off it, as it is so pretty.  I just love it!  Thank you for a great job. Betty

I've got the lamps.  They are beautiful.  Thank you for getting it done on time for my party. I will pass on your good work to all my friends and family.  So, hopefully, they can call you in the future.  Van

IT'S HERE...and is it GORGEOUS!!!!!!  And what packing!  It was enough to drive one to cuss..not that I would EVER do that!  I LOVE IT!
Thank you so much!  (did I use enough exclamation points????),


Hi Kelly and Kathy,
My shade arrived and I love it! I was sort of worried that I wouldn't like it because I never had anything made by discussing the details via e-mail, but when I saw it and put it on my lamp it's exactly what I wanted. It's perfect. I can't believe how well it blends in with the colors already in my room. You did a great job and I hope to buy from you again in the future.
Thanks so much, Alexx 


"The Aztec shade was certainly well worth waiting for.  It arrived today, neatly packed and it is meticulously made.  It certainly is an added feature to my living room."

Silvia and Erwin



Dear Kelly,

This is not a lampshade....this is a WORK OF the FINEST ART!!!!!!!

Thanks so very much!  It is the MOOOOOST beautiful Victorian lampshade I've ever seen.  Daphne


OMG Guys, these lamps are so gorgeous!!  I just can't thank you enough!!  They are perfect in every way!!   Sally


Just wanted to also drop you a line and say what a fabulous lamp!  Just wonderful and more proof of your artistry and professional craftsmanship!  Many thanks for being so great to deal with, so professional and so very very courteous!  The lamp looks great with my cockatoo one that was purchased here.  Keep up the good work!   

I wanted to let you know how much I love the Mission bed lamp I received on Friday!  I can't even begin to find words to describe how awesome the lamp is and just how wonderful it looks - the color combination and choice of fabrics couldn't have been more perfect for the room and the beads are breathtaking.  The bed lamp makes all the pillows on the bed standout and the copper/rose fabric on top blends exquisitely with the amber lamps I have on the night stands. The best way I can sum it up is to say "WOW!"  Thanks again!!!

Pam and I want to thank you and Kathy for your outstanding design of our Fan Lampshade. We know we picked fabrics and talked to you about the design several times, but the fabric you added to our choices turned out to be stunning (remember we forgot to send you one of the fabrics).  The colors, textures, contrasting elements, lines are all more than we could have asked for. We could not have chosen a better lampshade for our living room. It is exactly what we wanted, something that would draw attention to that corner of the living room: a work of art. 

The lamp base we purchased from you was also stunning in it's appeal. It fits the lampshade perfectly. We have re-arranged end tables and put the lamp on a round, pedestal  table that is also 18" in diameter - matching the diameter of the Fan Lampshade. It looks like the table, lamp and lampshade we all designed for one another.

To top it all off delivery of the lamp and shade was just in time for the holiday event we planned. It was in perfect order, no problems. Thank you for being so patient with us. 

Very, very appreciative,

Pam and Mike

  The shade has arrived.  I think it looks better than I thought it would.  It is fantastic! The lamp I bought in India.  The shade is perfect.  Thanks for your hard work and also for your patience, I am grateful.

  I just wanted to let you know how much I love my "Blossom" lampshade. It is truly spectacular. I was a teeney bit apprehensive about buying this just from photos, but when I opened the box and saw the beautiful shade, well I was thrilled. I made a call to Kelly this afternoon to tell you how pleased I am and also that my Grandmother in heaven is happy that I finally am using her lovely floor lamp!!. Thank you so very much. Best Regards Ann

  I will love the lampshade you say? Ummm, that would be putting in mildly. It is so gorgeous!!! My lamp is a twisted pole dark bronze, light bronze with the top and base having green. It looks so good! I am delighted! It does look more beautiful than the pictures, you are right. I could have never found a shade I would have been more happy with. I just can't stop looking at it! The tassel, so pretty, more than I expected. Thank you so much!!!!! Cory 

 Just wanted to let you know that I got my lamp Monday exactly as you said I would.  AND IT IS ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS!  I just couldn't be happier with it, Kelly.  I wish I could buy one of everything you have!  Thank you so much and I hope I can buy something again soon!  Lynn

The sage lampshade was delivered today, and all I can say is, "WOW"!  It is absolutely beautiful, and adds so much to my "parlor".  I am so pleased with it. Kathy 

I got the shade on Saturday and it is beautiful.  The sparkle is incredible in the low light of the entry and the light as it highlights the medallion  picture and the pharaohs beneath is very impressive.  Thanks for the great work!   Thanks  Rick 

I just received my shade and I can't believe how beautiful it is (even  better than the photos)! This is our 4th shade from you and they never disappoint. I'm just giddy over them! I won the VICTORIAN BRIDGE LAMP SHADE / LAMPSHADE 4 Item # 910275338  on ebay and I was wondering if you have another one? I put this on my end table light and I need one
to match or a style to go along with this shade to put on the other end table. Thanks sooo much, Kristin

I received the shade today. Wow!!!
Who ever made this is very talented. It is just the finest work. I was very impressed. Tonight I will be going through the on line catalogue to pick out the next one. This one is for the Living room. The room has beige walls, white trim and molding. The furniture is dark wood and my sofa is hunter green. The other chairs are tapestry floral. The back ground of the tapestry is dark with soft peach blossoms. Hints of beige and 3 shades of green on the leaves. I am still working on the window treatments so I want to do the shade in very washed out peach or soft champagne colors, not ivories.  I want to do this shade with beads and fringe gather rosettes and lace. I will e-mail you with the frame. The over all height of the lamp, which is plain glass is 16 the base of the socket.  If you have something else as a base let me know.  This is only one down at least 5 more to go. Thanks, B.

It just arrived and I am BREATHLESS!!!  You did a phenomenal job and it is better than I imagined and you know you really topped the cake with the tassel and bead chain pull!   When I opened it I thought maybe it was leftovers and when I realized what it was it blew me away!!!  I didn't realize it came with it and it really puts the finishing touches on.  I am really pleased with it... makes my living room cozy and I am going to curl up in there..  wait till everyone sees this!   I will refer anyone that asks.  Can't thank you enough and I may have a few shades for your handiwork.... hopefully in the near future.  Have a great weekend and thanks a million !!! Janice

The lamps arrived yesterday.  They are fantastic!  Thanks so much for the beautiful items.  Positive feedback posted on E-bay. R& B. Hagan

I received the shades (and tassel) yesterday and they are wonderful! The ivory damask with crystal beads looks fabulous on the floor lamp with glass inserts. I also purchased a glass finial from Miller OEM.  It looks like Jean Harlow!  Thanks again and I'll be in touch. C -

Received the most beautiful lamps and cherub shades I have ever seen. They are just beautiful and I plan on doing much more business with you. I will leave you great positive feedback as they arrived so well packed and also so fast. Thanks for a great positive experience. Cheryl
The pair are great!!!

Hi Kelly,
I received my beautiful lampshade yesterday and I must say that the pictures you sent prior to it's arrival did not do it justice. I just love the shade it looks perfect on the lamp. It is difficult to purchase a lampshade under any conditions but a purchase by mail is a real
challenge. Your level of concern and customer service is unsurpassed in this age of give me your money and get lost mentality. I truly enjoyed doing business with you and I hope we can do it again in the future. With warmest regards, Roberta

The riser and the lampshade both arrived here today.  I couldn't be more pleased!  It is absolutely beautiful!  It fits the standing frame perfectly and looks wonderful.  The only problem is that now I want to locate more old stands so I can buy more shades from you !!!...Many thanks for a job well done!    L. 

Here are the fabrics that B. picked out.... Oh by the way, the last shade you made was for her sister N.  She was ecstatic about her shade!  She called me after she got home with it and said she couldn't believe how much she loved it and how Perfect it was!  How's that for customer satisfaction!?  Thanks for doing such excellent work!
