If you need a lampshade for an old lamp, want to repair one, or you want one made exactly like the one in your head, Broome Lampshades is your place. "Friendly," "patient" and only "one block from the subway," readers say that they are glad that there are still shops in NYC that "make their own product" and allow you not to buy everything from Crate and Barrel. Choose from a large selection of shapes and fabrics and get your shade made in about two weeks. Not a luxury Soho shop, but excellent nonetheless, prices run between $100 to $200 for a standard custom shade. MGR
