OUR RESTORATION SERVICE: If you already have lighting but it needs work -- including repairs, rewiring, or conversion from candle, kerosene or gas to electric -- we are ready to help. There isn't much we can't fix, and we've been told that our turnaround time is among the fastest around!

UPDATE: Unfortunately, due to injury, we are temporarily suspending the restoration service that we've been offering to our customers. We will post another update if and when we resume this part of our business. We continue to offer hundreds of fully restored and rewired lighting for sale and encourage you to browse our website. Thank you for your interest in Old Lamps & Things! August, 2016.

ABOUT US: In 1996, after several years of restoring lighting for another dealer, we decided to open our own business. We brought with us a lifetime of experience in home improvements and a love for antiques.

We thrive on the challenge of bringing old lighting back to life. With the exception of re-plating, we do all restoration in-house, which helps to keep our prices reasonable.

The people we've met along the way are warm and friendly, and they let us know how much they appreciate our attention to every last detail. Our clients tell us that our prices are lower and that our turn-around time is much faster than that of other dealers.

We love what we do, and we're told that's reflected in the quality of our finished pieces. Our ultimate goal is to insure that our clients are happy with their lighting. We would be thrilled to have the opportunity to work with you on your lighting project.
