How honored, Shandell’s has been put on the Made in America map at ABC Word News. I want to shout this from every roof top. Glad to join all of the other businesses who are working to strengthen America.
I will be adding lots of new matchboxes for the holiday season, so stop back and see what is new.
Shandell's new home
Murphy’s Law “Everything takes longer than it takes.” Shandell’s arrived in it’s new home in July. The unpacking of 100’s of lamps, parts, papers, setting up and painting is finally done (still have some more to do). In my mind I thought I would be done sooner, but later is just as good. Just in time for the fall and all of the inside things that need to be done.
Look around and see your lighting needs for the season, a new shade to brighten a room, that lamp that has needed to be rewired. Chandelier or sconce shades to update your existing fixture.
Shandell’s is available by appointment or chance. I will also travel to you, just give a call or email me thingsthatmakeyousmile at gmail dot com.

When my friend Pam from retrorenovation.com got together to make a video a couple of months ago, we came up with so many ideas.
Here is the result, we had another day of making videos, these lamps were the outcome of a fabulous day together.
Make an Upcycled Vintage Percolator Lamp from RetroRenovation.com on Vimeo.
Vintage percolators, every house hold had one, but they are no longer being used. What to do with all of these fabulously designed vessels? Make lamps!!!!!
Hope they make you smile.
I just recently launched a new product “the original Cloth Cord Swag & Pendant Light Kits”
Well, my own creativity has been unleashed. I have boxes and boxes of old architectural findings and such, they are now being turned into beautiful lighting.
The pendant/swag pictured is made from old brass lighting parts.
Most of my creativity is out into lampshades, vintage things to make into lamps, and fabulous old lamps. Now this is a whole new territory I am discovering and having so much fun with. Hope this sparks you creative juices.
Have a great day.
