Isn't it amazing what adding a vintage lamp shade to a new lamp can do? I purchased this incredible 2-tiered lamp shade at a garage sale four of five years ago for twenty-five cents. I added it to a lamp that I got at the closeout sale when our local Walmart moved to a new building shortly after getting the shade. I originally put the shade on the lamp just to have something on it until I could buy a new shade. Now, I can't imagine this lamp without the vintage shade. The shade is just the right size, in my opinion.
