Shade Pulls are Fun

I discovered something old.  Something I had not run across before.  Something kitschy, plastic (celluloid) and fun.

They are shade pulls.  Functional was fun back in the day.

I'm discovering that they came in all sorts of shapes, flowers being very popular.

I think they still have a lot of life left in them.

I've given them a second life as necklaces.  Just for fun.

  1. What a great idea. They are so much cuter than anything I ever saw on a shade. Can’t imagine why they stopped using them.
    Very clever re-use of something old and pretty.

  2. OMG! You have answered a longtime question for me. I have some of these and have never known what they were for. Shade pulls! Thank you… and cute necklaces, by the way!
