Bullet Lamps All Lit Up

Have you ever come across something you’ve never seen before and then all of sudden you see it everywhere? That’s how it was with these crazy cool lamps. I’ve seen them called bullet and torpedo lamps dues to their ahem…shape. If you’re not comfortable looking at these because you’re immature. I understand. I too, am immature.

I’ve got these 3 lamps listed in both stores. Let’s see what they are.
