Now That's Some Powerful KARMA! and WE HAVE A WINNER

We are pleased to announce that Patricia Grayof Vancouver British Columbia is the lucky winner of these beautiful Cranberry and Cream vintage Murano Lamps. The drawing was held last Friday morning 1/18/2008 at Debris Antiques in Dallas. Our friend Jim, the manager of Debris did the honors.
As soon as we knew the name of the lucky winner, I of course did a google search and was so blown away by Patricia’s work. Please check out her website to see for yourself how talented she is. Patricia has been published in quite a few of the major design magazines including Architectural Digest. I love the subtext on her home page, “Exceptional Homes for Exceptional People”.
Patricia first heard about Swank Lighting and our contest through one of our favorite blogs This Is Glamorous.
Now about that Karma… Unbeknownst to any of us, Patricia was actually just a few blocks away at the Dallas Market Center when her card was drawn. She was on a buying trip at the Pacific Design Center in Los Angeles, and then on to Dallas for the Total Home and Gift show at Market Center last week. Patricia tells us that she was visiting with her friend Joni from Cote De Texas the night before and they even talked about Swank Lighting.
Congratulations to Patricia and thanks to all who entered. We had so much fun with this contest. We wish we could give all of you a pair of lamps. Seriously! But, we would probably be out of business. I promise we will have other contests though. Maybe sometime in the spring when we release our line of Vintage Deruta Italian Ceramic Lamps from the mid 20th century, also found hidden in the Balboa warehouse. Ooops did I let that slip out. Oh well, more to come.

Hi Ed
Wow and double Wow!!!!! I am so excited to have won these beautiful lamps and talk about serendipity and sheer good fortune on my part. I think I will go out and buy a Lottery Ticket. Thanks to you and Swank Lighting for this generous gift.

I'd never chatted with Patricia before she won and she is absolutely delightful. I'm so glad she won them too. Sorry you didn't Melanie. Better luck next time. Hopefully Patricia will send us some photos of how she uses the lamps soon.
