    Maybe it was a Christmas present you received in 1987, or maybe it was part of an inheritance from your great aunt Mildred from her estate 20 years ago. Or, maybe you’ve decorated your own little piece of amazing that someone else may not view as beautiful as you do. Whatever your lovely or laughable lighting accessory may be, Lynn’s wants it in their Ugly Lamp Contest held during the KY state fair.


    That’s right: get your entries in now until August 15th to win the title of Ugliest Lamp in one of three categories:

    1. Born Ugly: These lamps were purchased in the condition in which they are.

    2. Made Ugly: Lamps made by the entrant or embellished by the entrant to make them uglier.

    3. Leg Lamp or Glam Gam: These are leg lamps that are sponsored in conjunction with Actor’s Theater.

    As a reminder, there are rules involved and they are: No religious, political or sexually themed lamps, lamps must be in working order, lamps must be safe to move (i.e. no barbed wire or broken glass, etc), and lamps must be of a weight that a human being can move them- no fork lifts!
