The Girl that went to the Op Shop, went specifically to see if she could buy some light shades. This was to put on a 3 shade hanging light, circa 1920's, where 2 of the shades had been smashed - within one week of each other. Not naming any names or pointing to the guilty party, but he has been forgiven!
She did not find any light shades. But managed to come away with a wonderful crystal bowl. Which is made of nearly the same material as the light shades we want. That's close isn't it?
