Any ideas about a store in Guadalajra, that store never has the size other the shape I want. After 12 years I have yet to find a store that has a decent selection. Anyone else has that problem?

Oh yeah! It's only been a problem for us for seventeen years. I have brought lampshades home on a plane...on my lap.

In the San Antonio/Riberas area, on the north side of the carretera, is a brightly painted store that sells hand-painted furniture...and lampshades in various sizes and colors.

Damn Pedro...that brings back memories...haven't gotten drunk wearing a lampshade and singing into the vacuum hose in a very long time.

I find that my biggest beef about lampshades here is that they are made out of a "knobby" style material. They catch dust and are awful to keep clean.
The best selection that I've found here is in the lighting/hardware store at the other end of the short mall...Furniture for Less is at the other end. I believe that this is the same store that Gringal mentioned. Lampshades are at the back of the store. I guess you could also ask if they have a catalogue of shades to pick from and see if they would order something for you.
Then there's the problem of whether the shade is set up for a proper harp or just the kind that grips the lightbulb.
Somebody could have a nice business custom making lampshades in various materials...maybe as an add-on to an upholstery business

Yes I have the same problem and then I find one I like, I want two and they do not have two and do not order them , then there is the harp.. the place next to the OXXO in Riberas has some but not always the right size.
There has to be a store in Guadalajara that sells them or make them but I have yet to find it.

I bought a large number of shades at Liverpool. They had the variety in color, fabric, style, and size that I would expect to find in a NOB department store.

I have two hard to fit gimbal lamps. Illumina y Decora (by Sunrise) had shades made for me in Guadalajara. Quite quick and cheap.
