Share the Shade Love - Celebrate your Favourite Lampshade Maker

Valentine, Galentines or Palentines is just around the corner and regardless of which one you celebrate, we’ll be helping you share a different love – the love for your fellow lampshade makers!

We’re super proud of you, the community of lampshade makers that use Dannells products, and we see time and time again how you step up and support each other, sharing tips, knowledge or simply liking a commenting on other lampshade makers shades across social media. So, to celebrate this we’d like you to nominate your favourite lampshade makers, by using our brand new hashtag, #sharetheshadelove on social media.

You may have been helped, struck up an online maker friendship or simply admire another lampshade maker's style (admiration is what Valentine's Day is about after all!) so in the run-up to Valentine's day, between 7th and 14th February you can get involved and share your favourite lampshade makers, by simply using the steps below:

1. Simply pick a post or posts (the more love the merrier! ❤️) of a lampshade from your favourite lampshade maker or makers

2. In the comments section under the post add the hashtag #sharetheshadelove and tag us using the tags below, on either Instagram or Facebook. .

And because we love our lampshade making community too, each day we’ll put together a #sharetheshadelove compilation post, showing off those amazing shades and raising the profiles of our lampshade makers far and wide.

So start scrolling to support your favourite lampshade makers and their fantastic lampshades!
