What is a Retro Retailer? A “Retro Retailer” is either an online store or actual store that sells vintage, retro, dated, evocative, in period style, nostalgic, old world, old-fashioned,

out-of-date, passe, or period specific merchandise that is either new, original, or old. If you are looking for retro items to spice up your kitchen, office, or wardrobe, this list will help you in finding the item you are looking for and also few items you can’t live without. These stores are not listed in any particular order. If I have not done a personal review of the business listed below I have not done business with them, so please buy at your own risk. Please let me know if you have any issues with anyone listed. I will take immediate action and delete them off the list. (if you have any stores you want to recommend or if you would like me to look at your business please contact me and let me know. You can email me at Skrach@VividlyVintage.com)

Moon Shine Lamp and Shade

All week I have been doing highlight and showcasing business’s that sell retro styled items. This will be the last one this week and the blog will go back to normal. This week, if you haven’t been following, has been dedicated to retro retailers that I have found online and in magazines. I still have a ton more to share but I will save them for future posts. Today’s post is about a company called Moon Shine Lamp and Shade. They also have a furniture section as well. They have a ton of lamp shades and furniture that  are both modern and retro. They also have custom lamps that you can customize yourself. They supply to business’s and normal people as well. They have some really awesome styles and shapes. Here are a few of the items that caught my eye that are available on their website:

Making Custom Lamps

COLORS & TEXTURES

Start Designing Your Shade Now!Actual colors may not match website samples exactly. Lighter and darker versions of all colors can be requested. Each dyebath is different so colors will not be exact. Like ceramic tiles, there can be slight variation on orders where multiple dyebaths are used.  This is also why it is a good idea to order pairs of shades on the same order, and not one at a time, to insure a color match.  If you are concerned about the variation, please contact Moon Shine, and we will be happy to discuss what to expect with your specific order.  Custom colors available upon request. Send color samples! We can match them!  OR request color samples from Moon Shine! Patterns and images cannot be applied to textured material.

On shades with multiple tiers we offer up to one color per tier. When ordering a multi-tiered shade with a second color or third color, you need to designate what we refer to on the order form as the Primary, Secondary, and Third tiers. As illustrated in these two examples, the Primary Color is the tier(s) with the largest diameter. The Secondary Color is the tier(s) with the smaller diameter, and the Third Color is the tier(s) with the smallest diameter. Of course, not all of our multi-tiered shades, like the Mimi, would easily follow these guidelines. We provide a comments box on the order form to let you clarify any specifics that you request. We also offer a three-color combination on three tiered shades. Please use the comments box on the order form to indicate your selections. .
