Luck & crackers

July 18, 2012

A couple of years ago, I was browsing the aisles of my local 99 Ranch Market – a great place to kill a spare hour with a friend – when I found these really fun tins (full of crackers, of course). I had to have them.

When the time rolled around to put the tins to use, I found some plain white shades to go on top. But they seemed not quite adequate. Then I remembered the joss paper I’d acquired on another trip to 99 Ranch…and the die was cast.

Luck & Crackers lamps

I’ve been told that the bases and shades seem to be speaking different languages. I can see – or rather hear – that. But given that the bases by themselves speak three or four…well, I don’t see the problem.

Nonetheless, I’m selling all the pieces separately. Visit my Etsy shop for details about the lamp bases and shades. For more pictures, see the Desk & Table lamps page.


  1. I like the shades. I’m still working on coming up with the right shades for my sort of lamps!


  2. They look great!
