This may be the world’s most unique lamp! What do you think?

Save 25% on lighting August 21 & 22

You never know what kind of light you’ll find at the reuse warehouse and this lamp is a perfect example of that fact. A large fuzzy red shade, ornate base with red crystals, three candelabra lights with hanging shades, and a three-way switch!

The discount includes glass shades and globes, overhead lights, flush-mounted lights, wall sconces, outdoor lighting, fluorescent fixtures, and lamps.
