When it comes to clothing, everyone loves to find a good sale on separates. Mixing and matching is one of the best ways to create your own sense of style. But the same can be said of interior decorating. Many lamps come complete with base and shade, but Target has some lovely knockoff lamps that are worth a look.
Keep in mind that shipping will vary depending on each state, but for the purposes of this article, I have chosen the state of Florida to get an estimate on the shipping charges.
