6-5-13: Hello.... hunter green pleated shade I ordered arrived today in good
condition... and it fits perfectly... so thank you for the prompt service... I
will keep you in mind for future shade needs...
5-28-13: Dear Jim,
My husband, Bill Winter, asked that I forward this photo (see
) to you along with his sincere thanks for your help with a recent order. He purchased this wicker shade for the floor lamp that he restored and then discovered he needed a UNO thread - which you quickly and efficiently put in the mail to him as an additional courtesy. He thought you might like to see the finished project!
Thanks again for your help!
Cordially, S. C. W.
4-24-13: Jim, I came in this past Friday on the way to mountains. I have seen
your store for a few years and always wanted to stop. When I told my husband he
turned around. Now, he is not a shopper so the experience was nice for him, but
he was ready to get to our destination. For me, I was in heaven.
We talked for a while and you were so gracious with your time. I love your
store. In Charlotte I have never been happy with the selections. So, I was so
thrilled with your store. I told my girlfriends in the mountains and told them
were to find you. Some want to drive up with me.
I do want to come back without my husband. :) I would also like to bring in two
antique chandeliers that I would like your guidance and support on. One has a
broken piece I need to replace, if possible. And the other is from the 50's
which my father purchased. It is the only thing I have of his, he passed when I
was four years old. I did paint it at one time, and I would like your expertise
to understand if or should the paint can be removed.
I would also like to shop! I did see a few things I am very interested in.
I know you are retired, I am not. So, I am wondering if there are some Saturdays
when you are in the shop? If so I could come up and meet with you and shop. Let
Again, it was a thrill to spend time with you and to wonder through your store.
Thank you for such a lovely experience. I hope to have a few more.

4-17-13: Jim, The two 9 x 16 x 12 black, side pleated lamp shades I ordered
arrived yesterday. They were amazingly well packaged and were a day early. I
wanted to let you know they look great, and I'm very pleased with them. They
look fantastic and are well made! I'll give you a call when I'm ready for the
next shade order!
Thanks for your super customer service and suggestions!
This shade had just arrived safely - and I am absolutely delighted with it.
Sincere thanks for your help, and for the excellence of your service.
Kind regards, P. W. - in the UK
3-23-13: The shade looks incredible. Thank you all so much. I really appreciate the hard work you put into it. My girlfriend loves it. Thank you again.
3-7-13: Good Morning!
I was sitting here this morning looking at my new shades and wanted to let you
know how happy we are with our purchase! I was a bit anxious buying them over
the internet but with the lack of local lamp dealers in our area I had no
choice. My purchase is perfect…our lamps are back to beautiful.
Thanks, C.M. Nevada City, California
2-15-13: Hi Jim,
The swan lamp arrived today and I couldn’t be happier. I will send you a photo
of the pair as soon as possible.
Thank you, and again the lamps look great together, it’s as if they were meant
to be together.
You guys are geniuses........the shade fits perfectly, and the extra harp you
enclosed does the job. It continues to amaze me how you can fit lamps flawlessly
at such a great distance.
Many, many thanks.....I'm delighted with the results.

you for getting it to me before Friday, I really appreciate it.
Happy Holidays to you. - C. B.

ordered from you last month. Seth was a great help with sizing, etc.....all
around , impressive service and merchandise. Now, on to the next one: Am
interested in the square pleated corners black shade soft , probably 8x14xx11...

delighted. Thank you.

10-18-12: Hello, Jim.
My new shades just arrived and I couldn't be happier. They were packaged
carefully and they look beautiful in my living room. I'm getting ready to order
another shade. Thanks again for your wonderful products.
7-9-12: I can't recall that I thanked you for the two lamp shades you
constructed for me recently (this spring).
The black fabric shade for my husband's office added much to the decor and
physically fit the lamp perfectly, just as you said you thought it would.
The custom metal bouillotte shade is incredible. What a spectacular lamp it
completed. I could not be more pleased.
Again your company has saved my day and I thank you wholeheartedly.
F. D. Dallas, TX
5-11-12: Hi, My lamps arrived safe and sound yesterday, Thursday, and they look
great. I just want to thank all of you for the fine workmanship and service that
you provided. We had been debating whether to recover or replace and I’m glad
that I discovered your company and that we decided to get them recovered since
we were having trouble finding the size that we wanted. They look better now
than when we originally installed them in 1978.
Thanks again and it was a pleasure doing business with you.
Take care, Lawrence Philadelphia, PA
5-1-12: Good morning Jim, just wanted to let you know the lamps arrived this
morning and are absolutely beautiful! I was so amazed at how fast they shipped
and more importantly, the wonderful way that they were wrapped and boxed. I will
be saving those wonderful containers and cloth like wrapping, I haven't seen
anything like that before and my father worked in a local box factory for years.
As soon as I get some other projects out of the way I will be contacting you to
find a shade for my Remington table lamp. I may just have to order another floor
lamp too as I have decided the torchiere with the gallery shade might not make
it into my bedroom, it is looking quite at home standing proud in my living
room. These are really nice lamps Jim, they look great! In the photos they
appeared larger but in person they are perfectly proportioned for my 1950's
contemporary home, not too tall, not too bulky, I love them. Anyone would be
foolish to buy an antique lamp off of ebay like I almost did and still have to
recondition/rewire them, let alone find the perfect shades for them. Besides the
awful condition most are in the prices and shipping is far too high and who
knows how well they would have been packed. Your prices are just right, I will
be recommending you to anyone looking for nice lamps or shades, you have made me
very happy this morning.
Have a great week! T.F. San Antonio, TX
4-18-12: Hello Jim,
FedEx just delivered my new lamp shade (A30102).
I just wanted to let you know how absolutely delighted I am with it. It is a
perfect fit and compliments the lamp beautifully. My grandmother (1899-1979)
from whom I inherited the lamp would love it just as much as I do! My thanks to
you and Janie for your help in finding just the right shade for me.
Los Angeles, CA
3-2-12: Thanks Jim! Customer service, packaging and shipment gets a 5 star
It's good to know there are "Mom and Pop" shops still out there that care about
Your business made my wife very happy...and that's not as easy to do!
Thanks Again! A.B. San Diego, CA
11-28-11: Hi Jim. I received the shades for my mom's lamps and LOVE THEM.
Thank you so much. A. W. H., R.N., Ed. D.

Hello, Jim, Many thanks to you, Janie, Janie and everyone else at the Lamp and
Shade Outlet for getting me both of my lamp shades in a timely fashion. They are
Your quality, craftsmanship, and customer service are indeed top-notch.
Wishing you all a wonderful holiday.
Brian Phoenix, AZ
11-5-11: Hello Jim, Janie and Janie: I received my shades today and "Oh My
God"!!! they are just gorgeous. I had no idea they would be so beautiful. The
picture on your website does not do them justice. I chose them because of the
color combination to fit 2 bedroom lamps. I thought they would look nice but had
no clue they would be so exceptional. I will ALWAYS come to you all for all my
shades from now on. Plus I know once my Family & Friends see them, they all will
want to know where I got them. What company makes these shades? They must make
others as unusual and beautiful as these also. Do you carry others from that
company that have different panels and color combinations on one shade? Usually
shades are one boring color and your choices are White, Beige, Eggshell & Black
if you are lucky. Please reply as I have 2 beautiful Solid Brass lamps in my
great room that I had shades custom made for that cost me a lot a few years ago.
They are Creme and are very striking. BUT I am a person that likes color. Would
love to get shades for these lamps comparable to the 2 shades I just received
only in a different color combination. PLEASE tell me what company makes this
shade? Thank You so much. A VERY satisfied customer. - N. J. S. Chicago,
10-28-11: Jim - Received shade in excellent condition. You did a wonderful job.
Thank you. J. A. P. Hilton Head, SC
10-27-11: Jim, My hand painted glass globe arrived yesterday and I’m very
pleased with it.
Thank you, M. J. P-K - NY, NY
10-19-11: Hi again Jim -- Just wanted to let you know the Dale Dragonfly lamp
arrived today -- PERFECT condition due to your SUPERB packing -- thanks so
much! - J. B. Boston, MA
I want to express my complete satisfaction with my beautiful lampshade. Thank
you for a great product and great customer service.
Greetings Jim: I do apologize for taking so long to respond back after
receiving my lampshades from you - when my husband came home from work the day
they were delivered he came into the house and said; "wow, what's in that BIG
box on the front porch?" I was preparing dinner, said nothing, turned off all
the burners and ran through the house to the front door - he did not know I had
pursued finding a source for Stiffel lampshades, contacted you, all that I "put
you through, and how patient you were" in helping me to understand what I needed
to order (!)
When we opened the box he was delightedly surprised and said; "you finally got
us "A" new lampshade" - then came the next and the next and so on - well, Jim,
they are beautiful, especially the shade for the floor lamp with the extra glass
globe - everything fits perfect and I'm glad for the shorter harp - I'll be
contacting your soon for the 14"X17"X16" shade (or whatever, a number or two may
be a little off!)
I still need to purchase - again, thank you for all your help, patience, quality
products, and great people to do business with - please forgive me for taking so
long to send you my expression of appreciation
-- sincerely, C. K. Wilmington , NC
Jim, Just wanted to let you know the lamp base arrived yesterday, Monday Aug. 8,
in perfect condition. Could not believe how well it was packed. Now I have to
find something to do with those many yards of packing fabric. I hate throwing
things away, and will surely have to find some use for all of that.
I am just so pleased with the lamp. You did a wonderful job in matching the
color. I have added a couple picture attachments. It really doesn't show up as
good as the actual match because of the glare. But, I can tell you that it is
perfect. I really appreciate how great it was to deal with you and all the care
and consideration that you showed. I would love to visit your shop, as my
daughter-in-law told me how nice it was and all the beautiful and unusual lamps
you have. It would be worth a trip just to come to the shop and meet you. Tampa,
Thanks again, so much. J. H. Hampstead, Md
6-1-11: Just wanted to let you all know that I received the lamp base yesterday
... it was waiting on my porch when I got home from work. I love, love, love it!
I've been looking for almost 2 years now for the right lamp base for a tiffany
shade that I bought at an antique shop - was a great deal because it had no
base. Anyway, just wanted to let you know how happy I am. Also, what a great job
you did in packing it. Nice and secure. Thanks again! C.A.
5-12-11: I am so much more than impressed I can't think of what to say. What a
beautiful job she's done, please thank her profusely for me.
Thank you all for this great service you provide and the terrific customer

the lamp and shade frame were removed and refinished - then rewired with period

3-29-11: Hey Jim,
The lamp looks great! With a little effort I was able to hang it over our
kitchen table. We love it. Thanks again for your work.
Regards, B.P. Los Angeles
3-4-11: The two lamp shades I ordered just 5 days ago have arrived and they are
exactly as described on the web site and by the lady taking my order over the
phone. We have been looking for replacement shades for some 30-40 year old
Stiffel lamps for several years and could not find anything we liked until now.
They look great! The lady helping me on the phone went out of her way to measure
and describe the shades to ensure I knew what I was ordering (I knew next to
nothing about fabrics, and knew nothing about harps, etc.). It was a pleasure
doing business with you and I have already started sharing your contact
information with friends and family. We won't be replacing shades often, but I
will start with you whenever the need arises.
Thank you - E.A.W. Jr.
2-10-11: Jim - Please excuse the delay in letting you know the status of the
shade. Right during its arrival, I was in the midst of moving to San Antonio and
considered that the shade was in the best condition for travel as it was - in
the box/un-opened. Only a week or so ago we we in a position to set up those
special items (including the lamp/shade) to a usable condition.
That said, upon opening the box/setting it up, it became readily apparent that
several panels were replaced and that extra effort was taken to make it right -
I was most impressed!
Recognize that the process to get to this point took some time, but I'm pleased
to know that you/your team stands behind your word/workmanship - that has great
value and exhibits great customer service.
Thank you Jim - this is a special family heirloom that you brought back into use
and daily appreciation.
- H. P.
2-3-11: The shades are spectacular! The black shade on the brass
(oriental-design) Stiffel is absolute perfection. The cream shade could be
mistaken for the original shade on the Stiffel pineapple regency lamp. I
sincerely appreciate your advice and assistance in this venture. Since I need
one more shade similar to the cream one, I will be back in touch with you soon.
Thank you so much. Fran D... Omaha
10-23-10: I just want to thank you for the beautiful lamps. You would have
thought it was Christmas time when they arrived. We could not get the boxes open
faster enough for being so anxious and excited. There was paper all over the
dinning room floor and we did not care; any other time it would have been a
problem. All phone calls had to cease. They are simply beautiful. They are
gorgeous. They remind me of the lamps my mother had before Katrina. She had the
porcelain lamps with the naked ladies with the gold trim and the shades were
similar to the ones we received from you. Everybody is happy; the house is
happy. We thank you for your time and cooperation. Thanks so much. We will pass
you websites on to other family members and friends. THANKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!
10-22-10 From one of our very nice Tiffany lamp customers in Australia:
Just a quick message to let you know that the conversion work is finished and
that the blue dragonfly lamp now graces the study. As you can see, it looks well
set among other lead light lamps.
Thanks again to everyone for their help. Regards, Joseph. Virginia Beach
10-1-10: Jim, The slag lamp repair arrived and I am very very pleased with the
results. Thanks again J.B. Mesa
9-21-10: Dear Mr. Hoyle, Some time ago a friend of mine accidentally broke a
globe on one of a set of matched lamps I own. He contacted your organization to
see what could be done. Two days ago I received the results of your work. With
the exception of a VERY slight variation in the shape of the globe, over which
you have no control, the globe you copied is virtually identical to the
original. No one to whom I have shown the lamps can even see any difference at
all in the globes. I cannot say enough about the artwork. The colors are
identical to the original, both when the light under the globe is off AND when
it is on. Even the brush strokes on the copy appear to go in the correct
direction. Needless to say, the graphic detail on the copy is identical to the
original. Kudos to your artist. He or she is in the wrong line of work. They
could make as an art forger! You people have to be the best in your business.
Sincerely, C. K. S. Wilmington, DE
8-24-10: Jim, Just wanted to let you know that I received my lamp shade. It
looks fabulous on the lamp!! Sacramento
It as been a pleasure dealing with you and I absolutely love the fact that the
shade was made here in North America!!! Thanks again and have a great day! C.M.
8-23-10: Mr. Jim Hoyle, Alicia helped me with my order. She was so helpful, so
polite and so patient. I really enjoyed talking to her. She had so much patience
with me. Her voice was so pleasant and so was she. Thank you. F.A.H. Houston,
8-21-10: Hi: The shades arrived today and they look great. The Pleated Gallery
silk bell lamp shade is truly elegant and my favorite! What a beauty. Thank so
you much! R.F. New York
8-2-10: Hi Jim... You did a fabulous job... Thanks for everything Jim - working
with you has been a pleasure - you do fine work, and if only I still had that
antique amber pill bottle (HUGE, cracked, then destroyed) I'm sure you could
have brought it back to life. I will send off the other shade sometime soon.
Again, thanks, to all at the Outlet, for your professionalism, friendliness, and
extraordinary craftsmanship! - CA
7-29-10: Hello. I am delighted with the "little hat" shade and how it
complements this lamp. I also appreciate the tips on "polychroming" and was able
to achieve that effect with this lamp. The flash was necessary because it is
such a dark room, but it doesn't do the subtle aspects of the shade or the
coloring any favors. Still, I wanted to share it with you. B.M. - Louisburg, N.
7-8-10: Jim, It has been a pleasure to deal with you. And I am so happy that is
being made here in North America!!! Thanks again, Cindy
6-29-10: Hello Jim, I received the lamp today and just wanted you to know that I
am totally delighted. If this was ebay you would get 6 stars.!!!!!!! Pleasure
doing business with you. I may be ordering again from you. Thank you so much,
Nan - Long Beach
6-21-10: Dear Jim, Thank you very much for your help here and on the phone
earlier. Unfortunately I can’t invest $100 in this lamp which I bought for $10,
lovely as it is, since I am not working right now and need to make my bank
account last. But I wanted to say that I love your website with the
environmental messages, and page about recycled packaging materials and the
ocean plastic gyre. You are a man after my own heart and I encourage you to keep
it up. Too many people go along oblivious to all these problems. I really
appreciate your actions! Your business looks wonderful and I will come back in
the future for any lamp need when my fiscal conditions improve.
Best regards - A.O.
6-17-10: Hi Jim, Our new lamp shade for our Stiffel lamp arrived today. It fits

3-17-10: Hi Jim! I just got my miller slag glass lamp shade at my office today &
it looks gorgeous and is restored to its beauty so thanks so much. I was
heartsick when I first sent it to you and now it looks wonderful. How did you do
it? You mentioned that someone makes the glass? I am curious how the process is
done because it looks amazing. - Best, Adrienne

and the lamp was waiting for us on our return :) I just wanted to let you know
that it's perfect! Give Gracie a rub on the head from me :) Thank you! - Renee'
2-11-10 Hi Jim, Just checking in to let you know that I'm really enjoying my
beautiful 6-way Victorian Floor lamp. I did check out what you have in stock now

perfect for the lamp and room. I will definitely tell people about you.

lamp. Thanks so much and have a good week. Best regards, N.
10-12-09: Jim! Got my new lamp base here out in Burbank, California--- the lamp
looks GREAT on it, really transforms it. (Thank goodness someone I know actually
WANTED the old ceramic one, yuck!) I appreciate you walking me through all the
various base options, the accompanying hardware, etc., etc. VERY happy results,
and would recommend your company to anyone. Thanks again, and happy business! J.
10-7-09: Hello, I thought that you might like to see what I did with the swag
lamps that you made for me (they show how you can decorate a plain shade to your
personal preference).. As you can see, I added blue beading and gold trim to
match the color scheme in my living room. I'm really pleased with how they look
and will definitely keep you in mind for my future lighting needs. - S. S.
9-28-09: Dear Jim, We are so happy with our new lamp that we had to send this

your website along to family members! Sincerely, D.W. Carrollton, VA
7-2-09: I rec'd my order yesterday and want to tell you how beautiful it is! The
pictures do not do it justice. On another matter, I'm wondering if you might
have a drum lamp shade about the same size or a little larger that has a
botanical print (ferns, etc.) cover. I didn't see any on your web site but
thought I'd ask anyway. A.E. New Orleans

perfect condition. thanks again c. j. Tucson
5-15-09: Thank you for your recommendation of the glass torchiere lamp shade for
my Dad's lamp. Yes, it is different than the original glass shade but it is a
good different and I thank you for helping me through the selection process. I
guess you need to really thank Gracie. If it were not for her I may have thought
you were just another lamp store! Have a great weekend. I am still contemplating
a lamp shade but I am unsure of covering up the glass. K.A.
5-13-09: I received my lamp yesterday and I LOVE it! Thank you so much for the

3-25-09: Hi Jim, Just a short but warm note to let you know the slag glass
panels arrived today; safe and sound. Oh Jim, I waited until this evening until
the room where the lamp is became somewhat dark in the evening light to see how
it looked lit up, and I must tell you; IT LOOKS ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL!! The color
of the slag glass panels couldn't be better and the size is just perfect! I now
have another wonderful lamp all fixed up ... and ALL THANKS TO YOU. Wow Jim, am
I ever glad I found you and I am sure the future will find us doing many
projects together. I just love the old lamps and can't understand why anyone
would ever just go to a store and purchase a new lamp .. they sure don't know
what they are missing do they?! THANK YOU JIM .. GOOD JOB .. you have made me a
very happy Lady tonight and I just wanted you to know (I love the color of the
slag glass)! A MILLION THANKS TO YOU!! Very sincerely, Marion - Washington
3-25-09: Hi Jim, Our new lampshades arrived yesterday and I could not wait to
put them on the lamps. The shades and new finials are perfect for our bedroom as
they go so well with our French Country style that you would think a designer
arranged our room. Your assistance and expertise is greatly appreciated. Thank
you for your input and quick delivery. E. B. Canada
3-16-09: Hi Jim, This is C.W. I purchased a shade for my Stiffel floor lamp a
while back and my lamp shade just arrived a few days ago. I must say the shade
looks beautiful and fits the lamp perfectly! Thank you for your personal help in
finding the right lamp shade! I am recommending you to my mother who wants to
get a lamp shade for her Stiffel lamp as well. Thanks Again, C.W. Germany
2-26-09: ...shades arrived alive and well. It fits and matches perfectly into
the room. Three words: Thank you, Jim!!! Italy
2-21-09:Hi Jim, Absolutely fantastic. You folks are artisans in the
true sense of the word. It is not often I am thrilled that I live in the age of
the internet and computers, but in this case I would never have found Hoyle
Lamps! I will get the $ off to you on Monday and you should have them Tuesday.
Keep me posted with shipping date, tracking number, etc. Also, don’t forget the
little desk lamp – and the ruined pieces of the shade I sent you and the glass.
Our youngest has a friend who is a metal worker and he wants to fiddle around
with the pieces. Although this “new” lamp shade is so spectacular, I cannot
imagine that I ever really loved the broken one I sent you.
Thanks again, Jim. It has been a pleasure working with you. Best regards, C. K.
2-3-09: Thank you Jim, I am impressed and it was nice to talk with a warm,
friendly human being that has a name.. Tom
1-30-09: Also, we wanted to take a moment & let you know how very much we
appreciate ALL that YOU folks at LAMP SHADE OUTLET have done in putting back
together a special treasure for us by bringing back a little more delightful
light into our home & lives once again!!!
You're da best!!! Sincerely, respectfully, & gratefully, M. & L. C. Lake
1-29-09: I just wanted to let you know that I received the lampshade today. It
is perfect. It is absolutely beautiful and the quality is excellent. Thanks you
so much. I love lamps, so I plan to return in the future! P.G. El Paso
1-8-09: My daughter, M. S., and her sister and their families, got together and
ordered a "swag" lamp for my living room for Christmas. I am really enjoying it.
I especially like the two-way switch. I can have a soft light just to have some
light in the room or a bright light to read by.
12-22-08: Received it and it is PERFECT! Thank you for your quick delivery! I
will definitely purchase from you again. Happy Holidays!
10-30-08: Dear Jim, I received my lamp shades today and put them up right away.
They look so beautiful and elegant. Thank you. P.M. Cave Junction, Or.97523
10-20-08:Jim - Got my lamp shade today and could not wait to see how it would
look on the lamp that I wanted to put it on. This is a very beautiful antique
crystal lamp that I got at an auction. (I am into antiques) The lamp did not
have a shade on it when I bought it, so I ordered one from you. Wish you could
see it in person because it really makes the lamp super. I am sending you a
picture of it (not to good) so you can see how it looks. If I ever need another
lamp shade, I would not hesitate to order one from you. -Thanks Again, W. V.,
Oskaloosa, IA 52577, Shade #06745
10-8-08: Hi Jim: Received my lamp shade today and I am so very pleased. It's
beautiful and was well worth the time and effort spent on the Internet to find
you and your lovely lamp shades. Thanks again and if I hear of anyone that needs
your service, I will recommend you highly. B.
10-3-08: Dear Jim Hoyle, I just received my order and I am so happy. It has been
three years since I could use this floor lamp and the glass torchiere is just
like the one I had. Thank you so much for all your help. It looks great in my
living room again. Regards, N.M. Boston
9-22-08: Thanks for you help with the lamp shade. It is the perfect size.
S.D.8-21-08: Dear Jim,
I wanted to let you know that I received the 4 lamp shades that I ordered from
you yesterday as promised. I was extremely pleased with the beauty, quality and
workmanship on all of the lamp shades. But I must say that the
2 rectangular lamp shades (DS68-18) with the flared bottom are more beautiful
than the original shades that came with the lamps. Even my husband, who could
care less about lamps or shopping, remarked how beautiful all the shades looked.
I will recommend you, your company, and website to everyone, and I will shop
your website again in the near future. It has been a pleasure, and I did not
even have to leave my house! Thanks again. Sincerely, L C Fort Worth
8-15-08:THE LAMP SHADES ARRIVED AND ARE JUST AS WE HAD HOPED. THANKSD.B Oregon
7-29-08: Thank you so much for the replacement torchiere lamp shade (dish
type). We had broken ours, and I wasn't sure the new one would work, fit, be
the right color, size, and be a reasonable price.
It was all these things. THANK YOU SO MUCH! C. C. Pittsburgh, PA
7-16-08: Jim, Just wanted you to know that I received the lamp shades last week
and they are fabulous. I am sorry I have not written to Thank You sooner but
have had a couple of family issues that took my time. Again many thanks and the
lamp shades are just beautiful. I will pass your site forward to friends etc.
Many regards, L. C.

5-6-08:Dear Mr. Hoyle: The lampshades I ordered arrived a short time ago. I
have removed my 30 yr. old shades, polished my "cut glass" lamps, crowned them
with the new shades, and my whole bedroom looks brand new. "cut glass" lamps,
crowned them with the new shades, and my whole bedroom looks brand new.
Thank you so much for your website. I can't tell you how long I have been
looking for those exact lamp shades. The packing was great and, Fed-Ex actually
brought them to my front door. The billing came yesterday so I am all right
with the world.
I live in a ranch-style condo community so I am going to spread your name around
as someone to do business with. Sincerely, J. F. Christiansburg, VA

years!!! Again, Thank you so much for a job well done!! Sincerely, D. B.
3-12-08: We have finally had time to put our lamp back together. The piece is
perfect and the color of the patina is great. You cannot tell that there has
been damage to the lamp and that a replacement repair has been put in place.
Thank you for your great assistance in this matter. We have several Tiffany
reproduction lamps and I am sure we will be using your service in the future for
lamp repair and/or replacement. Thank you so much and wishing you a great and
blessed day....R. and R. C.
2-27-08: Just wanted to tell you that the 3 shades arrived safe & sound
today...They are great! Thank you for such professional service..M. R.
The lamp is fantastic!! It is in our library area of the house so that it shows
all those beautiful colors over a large area of the written word. We could not
be more pleased with the item. I am a science person, and to have an item made
of one of NC's minerals is exciting to me. I love the way the mica refracts
light from the bulb. I will look for more items from you. Since I live in North
Carolina, I thought that I might visit your store if that is possible. Take
care. Item was exactly as described. Great response time. S. B. in North
I just received the lamp this morning and am very pleased. It is even nicer than
I imagined! This will be an Easter gift, and I know it will be a hit! Thank you

well-packaged & in great condition. Thank you! Sincerely M. M. in Virginia
To everyone at Lamp Manufacturer Factory Outlet: I was so happy to have found
you! Your products are beautiful quality, yet prices are extremely reasonable.

four times the price. Your response time was great, too. I received my shipment
very quickly. Thank you so much! J. R. in San Diego, California

11-27-06: R. C. and I just opened the lamp box tonight and put the
lamp together....She just screamed (literally screamed) with excitement.
It took us two hours and twenty minutes to decide where to put it and how it
should be sitting. I'm going to have a strong drink before turning in tonight.
She is SOOOOOOOOO happy with this purchase. If you need anyone to put
any positive comments about your company on your website just let me know...
J.R. - Durham, N.C.
11-27-06: Today we received our lamp that you had repaired. We know that it was

Thank you very much. Also, we felt that your charge was very reasonable... W.&
J. - Port St Lucie, FL
12-19-06: Thank you very much! I am very pleased with the outcome of the
appraisal, and I thank you very much for time in doing the appraisal. I told my

contacting you again very soon. Thank you again. S. K. Birmingham
