My interest in vintage lamps comes from watching many films from the early days of Hollywood and British filmmaking. The lighting in these early films was so dramatic in black and white which for me made them so enjoyable to watch. Many of the scenes usually included beautiful table lamps right in the center of the set. Over the years I began a small collection of these lamps from antique stores in my travels. Recently I made a wonderful discovery in Old Lamps & Things. I was a little uncertain about ordering a lamp online without being able to see it up close in person. Cheryl put me at ease with the process and was such a pleasure to work with. After much deliberation I finally (with Cheryl’s help) made a decision on the one that would be a good fit in my home. It arrived in perfect condition and I was so impressed with the professional packaging. The lamp is truly magnificent and even more beautiful than I was expecting! Great customer service, professional, and knowledgeable about their products would be the best way I can describe my experience with Old Lamps & Things.

I bought 2 old gas light pendants and I love them so much. The customer service was great! I had been searching for the perfect lights for my client’s home and finally found them here. They shipped immediately and arrived safely. They are beautiful. I will be doing more shopping here in the future for myself and my clients. I highly recommend Old Lamps and Things!

I purchased a lamp (circa 1920’s) from this business and I couldn’t be happier! Cheryl was awesome to work with and kept me posted on everything from pricing, shipping info, shipping and anything else that I had a question on. The company that she deals with to pack and ship the items did a fantastic job and the lamp was firmly secured in a heavy cardboard container with bubble wrap and “peanuts”. Once I had it unpacked there was no damage and it was exactly what I had expected, actually better than I had expected! I couldn’t be more pleased with the the lamp and the whole experience to purchase it and get it to my home. A huge thumbs up to Cheryl and her business “Old Lamps and Things”. I will definitely be a return customer!!

Cheryl went out of her way to find exactly the parts I needed for my lamp and then shipped them to me under a tight deadline. My order was tiny, but Cheryl treated it like it was of the utmost importance. I’d give 10 stars if I could! Superb customer service!

I recently stumbled on Old Lamps and Things while looking for antique lights for my old home, and I am so happy I did. I contacted Cheryl to get details on two beautiful lamps I saw on the website. Cheryl responded quickly with all the useful information I needed to make my purchasing decision. Additionally, she arranged to have the two floor lamps packed and shipped across the country. The lamps arrived in perfect condition. We are incredibly happy with the quality of the rewired lamps and friendly, expert service. Despite living on opposite sides of the continent, we will continue to reach out to Cheryl at Old Lamps and Things for our restoration lighting needs.

What a lovely collection to be found here. Cheryl and Ron are kind, friendly folks who really care about what they do. I also really appreciated the proactive communication before I purchased my lamp and as we were planning the pickup. Well worth the drive. Would visit again!

Wonderful place to buy a fixture! They went above and beyond to find the best shipping rates and the two fixtures I purchased were exactly as described. Highly recommend!

I had the best experience purchasing from Old Lamps & Things. The lamp base was a beautiful solid piece and is going to look lovely once rewired and with a lamp shade. It truly is a unique piece. Cheryl went out of her way to find me the fastest, most economic shipping method to Canada. I received my lamp base quickly and it was extremely well packed. I will definitely be checking back to see what new (old) lamp bases have been added to their website and I wouldn’t hesitate to purchase from them again. Thank you for the superior service!

Ron and Cheryl of Old Lamps & Things combine the knowledge and know-how to bring your “old lamps & things” back to life with exceptional attention to detail and the willingness to go the extra mile in order to exceed your expectations. I can not recommend Old Lamps & Things highly enough! From now on, I will be taking all of my electrical repair and lamp refitting needs to Ron and Cheryl confident that the results will be simply superb!

We are building a unique log cabin which is to look like it was a built in the early 1900’s.  Although, there would not have been electricity to this secluded gem at that time, Cheryl was such a great help in finding pieces that would work for that time period, wiring them for electricity, rewiring them to make a piece functional and safe or…. customizing something to make it look just as you would like.

Whether you are looking for a certain piece, a one of a kind, or something truly different or unique they would be the ones to contact.. They are prompt to reply with always a pleasant message in return.

I have never had such great customer service, I was always kept in the loop with progress, whether it be in the search for a treasured piece, or just the status of shipping and delivery,  I guarantee you will have a pleasant experience in finding just the right treasure!

Cheryl had just the right lamp for my project in my 1881 Queen Anne. Lovely antique, two-arm fixture, rewired and ready to hang…all at a very reasonable price (even the shipping — found my light fixture online, easy to purchase & arrange shipping).

Cheryl and Ron are exactly the reason I prefer to deal with a small business over a big box store. I came to them with a broken desk lamp.The switch I needed had been discontinued.Ron found a solution using alternate pieces from his parts bin. Since the lamp wasn’t worth much, Ron didn’t think it would be worth the money for him to fix it. But if I wanted, he could sell me the parts and show me how to fix it myself, saving me quite a bit of money. Ron sat down with me, and walked me step by step through the process, a one on one tutorial on how to rewire a lamp.

So now I have my lamp back! And it’s working great! I should also mention that Ron and I are both “Gear Heads”, (much to my wife’s chagrin), so the conversation kept drifting from lamps to drag racing!

I truly enjoyed this experience. In fact, I may have to “accidentally” knock over one of my wife’s lamps. Just to have an excuse to go back! (We’ll keep that between us though).

I am not a person to do reviews, but I cannot say enough in the form of a thank you to Cheryl and husband for their professionalism, attention to detail, and consistent excellent quality of service. Not only did they make sure we had found the right vintage six-way lamp, but then they tracked the delivery process (that became very challenging for any one) to make sure all lamp parts arrived as they had expertly packed them. Exceptional service-thank you!

Cheryl is such a sweet soul and doing business with her is a very positive experience. The kind of care and solicitous customer service she provides is too rare these days. Her inventory is THE BEST you’ll find anywhere. Simply incomparable. Top-of-the-line quality and often quite unique and rare. We had an unfortunate issue with shipping and Cheryl handled ALL with utmost integrity, willingness, and cheerfulness. I look forward to purchasing from Old Lamps and Things again!

Cheryl and Ron are fabulous! I needed to have an antique lamp repaired and also needed to replace its smashed glass lampshade. The repair work that was done to the lamp base is impeccable and the replacement shade Cheryl hunted down as its replacement is an exact replica. Everything in life should be as easy and as enjoyable as this seamless transaction. I highly recommend Old Lamps and Things!

I searched a lot of antique and restoration websites to find the right size brass bobeches I needed to restore my vintage mogul lamp and could not be happier with Old Lamps & Things for attention to detail, professionalism and customer service. My order arrived quickly, each item wrapped and numbered, and even with a handwritten note. I will definitely use them again.

Buying old lamps and things online can be scary. Will it arrive broken? Is the item you want to purchase exactly the described thing and do the photo’s justify? Most importantly, are the people you’re buying from honest and forthright? Well folks, Cheryl is wonderful to do business with and their stuff is authentic and restored to absolute amazement. My antique pendant is simply stunning! Highly recommended and would purchase from them again. Great communication throughout and they know how to deliver the Goods! Thank You Old Lamps & Things!

Surfing online, I found & purchased this beautiful antique bridge floor lamp. Always very weary of online purchases of this caliber, Cheryl and old Lamps & Things were a true class act. Very impressed with service and promptness. The lamp!? Perfect as described and shipped with great care. Definitely 5-Stars.

I can’t say enough about the team at Old Lamps & Things. Although the term is overused, working with them has been awesome. I think enough of them to send my lamps to them for rewiring and repair from Wisconsin. One lamp they repaired is a soft metal and was cracked with age. They were able to fill in the crack. I can’t even see where it was. They are prompt, considerate and their work is first class. Customer service is wonderful. I’ve texted Cheryl on weekends and she’s replied the same day. Most recently, I asked a question about a crooked table lamp. Cheryl consulted with Ron and told me how to fix it on my own. I am so happy to have found them and would recommend them to anyone.

My husband & I were on the hunt for a very specific & unique wall sconce for a bedroom remodel, when we happened upon a quaint & charming site…“Old Lamps & Things”. Not only did they have “THE” perfect piece, but Cheryl, the owner & main contact, is so very helpful & accommodating, doing anything & everything to try to assist in finding you the piece you have in mind 🙂 She is also very prompt in her response time. As far as the lighting piece itself? It was outstanding! You can tell a lot of care & attention to detail is put into each fixture 🙂 Additionally, there is just a genuine passion & heart that Cheryl bestows on her clientele 🙂 What an incredible find…in regards to both the purchase & the site!!! 🙂 They have so many unique & rare antique lighting fixtures. Some we’ve never even seen before or never knew existed. Our only regret? That we didn’t discover this site sooner!!! If you are on the prowl for an antique fixture or something unique, we urge you to check out Old Lamps & Things 🙂 We will have this saved as one of our “favorites”, to keep checking periodically, as you never know what lightning gem you may discover as they continually update their inventory 🙂

We have my husband’s mother floor stand lamp that has three bulb around the stand and a globe in the top middle. The globe got broke and needed to be replaced and, “1” screw that holds the globe in place was missing. In a matter of a few days I received my globe and a screw – both vintage. I am extremely happy and satisfied. Cheryl gave old fashioned good customer service too! I highly recommend Old Lamps & Things to everyone.

Cheryl, proprietor of Lamps and Things, is amazingly gracious, conscientious and personable. I ordered a rare piece from her shop in Connecticut and she had it ready to ship the next day after a holiday weekend. The kerosene lamp was wrapped so thoroughly and packed so carefully that breakage in route was nearly impossible. The piece arrived in Texas all the way from Connecticut by ground shipping in less than a week in perfect condition. I was so impressed with the customer service, the lamp and her competence throughout the process of purchasing the lamp. The process was extremely fast and easy and I could never have hoped for better results. It is obvious that she is a very honest and caring. A very pleased customer in Texas.

They did such a wonderful job at wiring a lamp that we had bought while on vacation overseas. Due to the scheduling of our electrician, they were able to expedite the work for us. I would highly recommend working with them on any unique lighting project that you might have. It is also nice to support local business!

I took my 85 year old lamp to Ron & Cheryl, not knowing if it was worth the effort and expense to save it. They both assured me that it was, and it is beautiful! Even better than the lamp though, was my experience with these two personable, knowledgeable and engaging people. The quality of Ron’s workmanship is both extraordinary and impeccable, but the personal experience in dealing with them was even more gratifying. Talk to them, and see how a small business should be run. Courteous, professional, and prompt, they deserve five stars across the board, and every success that comes their way.

I stumbled upon old lamps and things while searching for a bridge arm lamp. I do not know much about lamps and I had literally dozens of questions. All of my questions where answered quickly and in detail as to why you could or why you could not do something. I am very happy with the Dragon Bridge arm lamp that I bought from old lamps and things. I hope to do business with them again someday.

Cheryl and Ron are awesome people. They were able to revive some of my old lamps beyond my expectations. Ron has the technical expertise to be able to restore or convert anything and Cheryl has a great design eye and finds the perfect shades and finials to finish the look. Anyone who appreciates service, craftsmanship, attention to detail, and one-of-a-kind pieces should make a point of visiting their place.

Cheryl and Ron have an amazing collection of vintage lighting. My wife and I were very fortunate to have discovered Old Lamps and Things. We live in a home built in 1912 and have purchased many sconces and ceiling lights that have helped us maintain the home in a historically correct fashion. The lighting we found is unique, perfectly updated and restored. It really adds the historical touch we were hoping to keep.

If you are anything like us, trying to find light fixtures that fit into an old house design with authentic antiques is almost impossible. We solved this problem beautifully when we discovered Old Lamps and Things. We were building from scratch so our ceiling and wall fixtures are all restored antique fixtures that passed code just fine. Later, when the house was done we bought a second and third round of table and floor lamps. Really lovely! Couldn’t be happier!

Ron and Cheryl of Old Lamps and Things are the best! We own over a dozen lamps that we either purchased from them or that they have rewired or repaired for us. Old Lamps and Things always has a great selection of vintage and antique lighting and reasonable prices. Ron and Cheryl are wonderful to work with; they are honest, friendly, and knowledgeable. When we need a special piece for our historic home, we can always count on Ron and Cheryl. We frequently recommend Old Lamps and Things to friends and we will continue to use them for any of our antique lighting needs.

For years, I kept pieces & parts in a box in the garage…in South Florida, suspecting they were special-recovered from a demo’d building in NYC years ago. Finally, Google helped me find Old Lamps & Things in CT. After a promising phone call, shipped them all to Old Lamps & Things. Then the obstacles…a shipping mishap & broken glass (no fault of OL&T), a hurricane delay, my multi-state traveling…and despite hurdles, they kept me posted. These folks are angels. They hunted and shopped locally to replace the extinct broken glass part, put together the 100 year old chandelier, insured the electrical integrity and shipped it back in a condition better than I could have imagined. It is beautiful in my home. After all that…their pricing was incredibly fair. Although the light fixture hanging in my home was the goal, the knowledge shared, kindness, and patience was an invaluable bonus. I have yet to visit CT or actually meet Cheri & Ron but, totally trusted their knowledge and experience…by phone. What a refreshing experience in this way too fast world. I highly recommend their workmanship, knowledge and appreciate their integrity. Thank you for walking me through the adventure, keeping me posted despite the unavoidable adventures, your good humor and wonderfully generous willingness to share your time and knowledge. I am a very happy customer.

My husband and I met Cheryl and Ron over ten years ago at the Farmington Conn. antique show. Knew right away they were people you could trust and get along with. We were putting in a new kitchen and needed lights for the island and they had just what we were looking for! Since then we have had them do other wiring projects for us. Their work is excellent!!!

Looking for a 1930s Torchiere lamp, we happened upon Old Lamps & Things online. What a find! Cheryl and Ron’s incredible inventory and vast knowledge are only surpassed by their kindness and genuineness. They answered all of our questions and treated us (including our Yorkie, Pippa) in a way that made us feel as if we had known them for a long time. Doing business with them was a pleasure…well worth our 2+hour drive from NYC.

We were so lucky to meet Cheryl and her husband with Old Lamps and Things when we set out to renovate a period bathroom in our 1901 house. They have a fabulous selection of antique lighting fixtures as well as a great variety of vintage shades. After spending time just enjoying the beauty and variety of lighting in their showroom, we selected a hard to find set of 4 matching Bradley & Hubbard sconces (circa 1898) as well as beautiful glass shades. Everything was rewired and ready to install. They were so generous with their time and attention. Highly recommend patronizing their business and benefiting from their knowledge and expertise.
