Retro Lamp Shades

I was wandering around downtown Gresham, OR today.  I stopped in at Foxtrot Vintage (227 N. Main Ave) and next to the cashier I saw a stand with swanky lamp shades.   I asked about them and found out that they are made by a local Gresham artist, Henry Fancher, and they can be custom ordered.  He makes them out of fiberglass parchment (as they used to be made in the 50s) and he also hand-paints them.

"I can blog about that!" was my initial thought.

Go check out this website and be sure to look through the online gallery to see a bunch of these shades.  You can go to Foxtrot Vintage to put in a custom order or use the website.  There are single, double, and triple tier shade options and they come in a variety of colors and patterns!


I walked away from Foxtrot Vintage with three vinyls: Blues Brothers, Elvis, and Rev. Horton Heat!  Score!
