I need lamp shades for some lamps, but I don't find any really nice ones at the lamp stores. Where do you find good lammpshades???

Penneys used to carry a nice line of shades, but that was some years ago. Good luck!

Lowe's usually has nice lamp shades. One of my favorite lamp shades came from Target a few years ago, so I second that suggestion, also!

Menards and maybe Home Depot etc could carry some.

Perfect lamp shades are hard to find. I have had my best luck at a small lamp shop where I can take my lamp and "try-on" shades. The staff is wonderful, and helps with harps and finials, too! Maybe you haven't found the right lamp shop. I can recommend one in Texas!

I did find mix and match lamps and shades, decorative finials, at Lowe's a few years ago....nothing really, really special but nice.

My very favorite place - Lamplighters Lamp Shades on E Burnside in Portland Oregon, only it's 2 1/4 hours away, and any time I'm down there I'm too busy with family to shop. I bought a gorgeous silk shade there a few years ago and haven't been able to get back...

I just ordered two from here this week, needed the close-to-wall shape....I'll let you know if I'm pleased...

If you were interested, my lamp shades from Shades of Light came today and I'm quite happy with them. A good weight quality shantung silk - the lining may not be silk but that's OK, it was the lining that disintegrated in the old shades I was replacing. These have a same color braid trim that's applied to look seamless, no overlaps or glue but sewn, very well done.

I'd buy from them again. Their packaging was flawless (came FedEx, took 8 days from order date), but method used prohibited sending two shades same box, the shades are individually boxed and sort of suspended by heavy cardboard 'framing' inside - which meant I did have to pay shipping for two packages needing two identical shades, but that's OK...really needed these and shape had been difficult for me to find.
