Light comes from many sources: the sun, fluorescent bulbs, and the eyes of a child who has just swallowed a sparkler. Shade the glare with today's Groupon: for $25, you get $50 worth of lampshades and home accessories at Calloway's Lamps & Shades.
Calloway's Lamps & Shades has been a trusted purveyor of home lighting and accessories for 65 years, and it continues to illuminate customers' abodes with a stock of more than 4,000 lampshades ($10–$400) in styles that range from ultrabasic to bulb-dimming bombshell. Luminescence-loving staffers can answer shoppers' common lighting queries, such as how to determine optimal light-bulb wattage or how often lampshades get soused enough to wear other lampshades at holiday parties. Must-have pieces of home miscellany also lure customers with utilitarian magnetism and include umbrellas ($15–$24), Seda France candles ($20), and Venetian-style goblets ($36). In addition to offering 150 hanging fixtures, including an elegant Moroccan fixture ($45), Calloway's also provides one-day expert lamp repair that can coax busted desk lamps into the light and sweet-talk genies into granting mulligans on unwisely spent third wishes.
