Here are a few rare shots of the @lightuplabs basement workspace. Don't let the clutter fool you...we operate within a careful balance of chaotic organization. We never know when we will find good pieces, or when someone will generously bestow a hodge-podge lot of items to us. So we have a few categories that new items are grouped into, and then slowly, items make their way into Paul's workshop and the tinkering begins. Many of the items we aquire require a serious scrub down, others need to be mended and repaired before we can integrate them into a lamp. It can be challenging, since it is not often we receive multiples of identical items, but it is always rewarding to see the transformation.

@lightuplabs book lamps have always been a popular gift choice for holiday shoppers. We have plenty of books from a wide array of genres paired and queued up for lampifacation, so who knows...maybe YOUR familiar favorite will be waiting for you at our booth in a few weeks, just like that original copy was waiting for you to crack open and read for the first time.

Since the start of the pandemic, we've been experimenting with some new mediums and resin casting is one of the few that stuck. This holiday season, @lightuplabs will be introducing these resin tealight sets with groupings of evergreens and glaciers. These fit perfectly on a mantle or coffee table, whether yours or someone on your gift list this holiday season! 🎅🎁🎄

Scones, a quick bread of British origin, that is often topped with butter or clotted cream. MsCotti’s (@mscottibiscotti)scones are nothing like you have experienced before. Their soft and fluffy texture combined with their sweet taste makes this a perfect breakfast treat! Some of our top flavors include: Blueberry, Cranberry Raisin Pecan, Cinnamon, and Raspberry. What is your favorite scone flavor?

So what is a biscotti some might ask? The traditional definition of a biscotti [bi’skotti] are Italian almond biscuits that originated in the Tuscan city of Prato. Italy. They are twice-baked, oblong-shaped, dry, crunchy. and may be dipped in coffee and tea! MsCotti’s definition of biscotti is an Italian cookie that should not break your teeth but rather be nice and soft to enjoy with either dipping or not dipping in coffee or tea ☕️ While the traditional flavors of almond and anise are our top selling flavors… we have so many biscotti flavors that become a hit. Pumpkin Cinnamon Chip, Pistachio Pecan, Lemon Cranberry, Black Cherry Hazelnut, and Orange Walnut are just a few of our top selling flavors!

So I may have a BIT of an obsession with enamel pins. I have them on my purse, my pencil case, a banner on my wall full of them...and some that have no place yet to go 🤣. So obviously it was only a matter of time before I had to make pins of my own! Over the summer I funded my Safari Plush Pals enamel pins on Kickstarter! Now I have the Giraffe, Turtle, Crocodile, Lion and Rhino available to purchase!! You can get them at the upcoming Holiday Show or now on my Etsy.

Surely someone in this community can make a monolith replica for sale so that it can show up in people's living rooms on Christmas morning! https://www.ladbible.com/news/news-mysterious-monolith-similar-to-one-found-in-utah-appears-in-romania-20201130?fbclid=IwAR1FAB1dJPUW0obgKdYpaRxQBs2HSk75PmQDj378BWpoTUa8o_x06neCYZ8
