Yellow Quaker Oats printed tin plug-in pendant light


These upcycled lights would hang sweetly in multiples over a counter or long table, or singly over a desk or in that dark corner where you're always wishing you had a light.

Made from a tin decorated with retro graphics, with the interior painted white to reflect the light softly (even a CFL).
Can be swagged and plugged in, or hardwired to your house electrics (additional parts needed for this; please consult a knowledgeable electrician).

To have a switch added for plugging in, select the "With switch" option. It will be installed 20" from plug end unless you prefer a different placement. Contact me with any specific requirements.

- 8" tall, 5" diameter
- Cord is 15+ feet long, white, round.
- Some hardware for hanging as plug-ins included, but you may need more.
- Takes a standard base bulb, incandescent, LED, or CFL; 75 watts is probably the maximum you'd want to use with an incandescent. Complimentary CFL bulb included.

Shipping from United States

In most cases, postage to the western U.S. will be lower than what's shown. Don't hesitate to contact me for accurate shipping costs to your location. In any case, if shipping is significantly lower than what you are charged, I will automatically refund the excess.

I am also happy to ship overseas or use expedited shipping. Please contact me to set the process in motion.

Most of my pieces are made from vintage objects on the outside, with new functional parts inside. This means they will show signs of their age, which is part of their appeal, but the works will last for a long time. Unfortunately, photographs can unintentionally either disguise or exaggerate the wear on a piece. I encourage you to take this into consideration when making the decision to buy. If you find you aren't happy with your choice, you have 14 days in which to return it for a refund of the item price, not including shipping.


If you have an object you think would make a good lamp, I may be able to help. Use the link to request a custom order or drop me a note. Custom orders are subject to a 20% nonrefundable deposit, as noted above.
