Got A Light Freebie Winner!

I have to admit, I thought there would be many more Charlottesville-lovin’ UVA alums commenting on our “Got A Light” giveaway courtesy of The Shape Shop & Lighting Gallery. I guess I’ll have to be more direct next time I want to induce some gushing about my favorite college town. Oh well. And I guess I can’t complain about a giveaway that elicited over 650 entrants! You guys really want a light, eh?

At least I can offer one more great reason to swing through C-ville next time you’re in the vicinity: The Shade Shop is offering a 10% discount to all Young House Love readers! All you’ve gotta do is just mention our blog when you place your order. It’s that easy.


Speaking of easy, someone just scored this antique-nickel-clad Lucy Accent Lamp for simply telling us what they miss most about their college town. And that someone (as decided by is Dinosaur-BBQ-lovin’ Jess! Congrats! You’ve got a light coming your way and we can’t wait to see pics of your beautiful new lamp in its new home.

And as usual, keep those commenting-fingers warmed up because there’s another freebie ready for next Monday.

Fab Freebie: Got A Light?

We love giving away lamps, what can we say. So if you didn’t come out on top last week, here’s another shot at taking home a stylish piece of lighting for your home.

This week’s prize comes from The Shade Shop & Lighting Gallery located in nearby Charlottesville, Virginia. They offer a diverse and ever-changing gallery of table lamps, floor lamps, chandeliers, sconces, tables and (of course) lamp shades.  In fact, they’re brimming with excitement over the new line of Bunny Williams lamps that just arrived. Plus, the Shade Shop offers custom lampwork and repair, meaning if you want something unique they can make it AND they can fix it if you happen to break it.

But hopefully you’ll have trouble breaking the antique-nickel-clad Lucy Accent Lamp (valued at $298) that they’ve put up for grabs this week. Check it out below:


To enter to win just comment on this post with the words “GIMME A LIGHT” by Wednesday, March 4th at 8pm EST. And since this prize hails from my alma mater’s hometown, we’d love to hear what you loved most about your college hometown. I could go on and on about Charlottesville- after all it was once named the #1 place to live in the US. And we could probably name quite a few things we love about Sherry’s college town (NYC) too, considering it’s where we met. This prize can be shipped to the lower 48 United States and as always, only one entry per e-mail address is allowed. Good luck…
