I can't breathe and I'm hyperventilating at the Moonshine website! An avid collector of 1950's lamps since the early 80's, ( when they were affordable and more plentiful), I had to gave up my hobby as prices soared and the fun went out of collecting them. My desire for them never went away, however, and at more than one vintage shop I mutttered, " For the love of God, can't someone start reproducing these little pieces of art? How hard can it be?" And, VIOLA..... there you are!
Who are you people and whomever you are ,you've done your homework! Every nuance, color, detail, texture, pattern, shape, I have ever coveted over the years is here!! I am dying!!!! :) Even your "Nicotine" series holds significance, as I once inherited a bunch of 50's lamps from an older lady who smoked liked a chimney. Of course, her 50's lampshades were stained that certain color that actually throws off rather warm glow.Please tell me how you came to name that color series, "Nicotine"? And, I was just about to start giving away 6 pairs of lamp bases without the shades( 'parents without partners', I call them), but am now completely overwhelmed with the options of how to save my little friends. Finally. may I ask if the shades are actual fiberglass? I love that you have lacing choices and cannot believe that you even offer diffusers.. too cool! I must take time to digest all of this, but be assured, I will be ordering soon. Thank you !
