One thought on “Harold’s Lighting History”

  1. This is very nostalgic. But you left out Harold’s two daughters, Nancie and Melodee. At one point, it was mainly me (Melodee) and Harold holding down the fort for a few years. I learned everything from hardback shade making to customer service, sales, and even lamp repair. I recall that Harold called me his right hand “man.” for awhile, Then I worked part time as I rode my bike to U of W and back. Also Dusting Dusting and more Dusting. Kim came along behind me very eager to learn everything. That was OK by me, because by that time I was ready to go off and do other things with my BA in Psychology working with Dr. PG Anderson at Agape Family Counseling in South Seattle, Renton. As a side note, I am VERY impressed with how this family business has grown and kept up with the times. I give much of the credit to my brother Kim who has shown incredible talent and artistic sense when it comes to custom lamps and shades.
