I'm looking for one of lamps where the body is clear glass and you can fill it with shells or marbles or whatever.

This is the only place online where I could find one but it's a taxidermy shop and it creeps me out a bit to order from them!

Anyone seen these online anywhere or in any big chain stores?

Interesting. Thanks!  I guess I some how stumbled on to the "taxidermy" part of the site.

How did you find this? Did you google it or did you just know they had them?  I'm just wondering what search words to use because nothing I try seems to be working...

Not as fancy, but I've also seen Mason jars with DIY lamp fixtures added. More of a country, down home feel. $15.99 at hobby lobby.

Unfinished wooden base with lamp fixture. Maybe you could just add a cheap vase or bowl? $15.99 at hobby lobby We actually had a $50 lamp like this. It had one of those little founatain kits with stones on the base.

This plus basket=lamp. $9.99 at hobby lobby

Try searching under lamp kits. HTH

ooh! Searching for "glass display lamp" gave me some more options:

I also found this but you have to buy all the lamp parts separately:

And this is the Hobby Lobby one I think:

It seems like you can turn almost anything into a lamp with the kits at hardware stores.  My mother has made lamps out of antique crockery jugs with lamp kits that fits into the neck of the jug.  They also make versions for wider-mouthed containers, like jars and vases.  If you get a clear glass vase or jug (you can buy cider in such jugs at grocery or natural food stores), you can fill it with your stuff and then top it off with the lamp part.  Actually, I think I may have to do this myself...

Here's a links with a couple types of kits: http://www.nationalartcraft.com/subcategory.asp?gid=1&cid=156&scid=226

Look up fishbowl lamps.  I don't know if that would be cheaper or what.  Hope that helped somewhat.

My friend has one of these lamps. She collects fairy glass, and it's a unique, pretty, and functional way to show off her huge collection!

Better late than never?   I am pretty sure I keep seeing those lamps at Michaels and for some reason I think Wal-Mart might have them too.
