Vintage fabric and some amazing Shell lights


Aren't these just amazing? They are almost so kitsch that they have gone full circle and become the most amazing little works or worlds of art. They do look wonderful all lit up. Back in the day these were very popular on ebay but even then I would have hesitated to list and then have to pack the fabulous coral ones as they are just to delicate.


I have been at it again with my fabric obsession and have some amazing vintage prints at the moment....these will be off to The Woollongabba Antique Centre.

  1. Your right for awhile shell lamps were pretty sought after on ebay. Are they still popular?

  2. Cool coral/shell lamps!! My Nan used to have a shell one and it was HUGE. My uncle made it when he was a deep sea diver around the Rockhampton area quite a few years ago.

  4. Love the lights, not keen on the fabrics. But that's probably because they look too familiar as in I remember designs like that!
