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!

Target has some nice ones.

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!

Other thoughts...
Check estate sales
Consult an Interior Designer

Good luck!

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...

Here is a link that might be useful: Shades of Light

RE: PS - Where to find a really nice lamp shade or two

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.

BB&B has some shades, too.
