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.

Extremely knowledgeable an a very nice selection of lamps an their restoration work was spot on not only for the lamps they themselves sell but I brought in a antique lamp that belonged to my grandmother it was in rough shape an they restored it without compromising the lamps antique charm. The overall experience was above an beyond on Cheryl an her husbands part. I would highly recommend them.

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.

Perfect restoration – the wiring looks like a drawing! Great people to work with on any project – large or small. My 1927 Art-Deco ceiling lamp.

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!!!

Ron and Cheryl have a keen eye for quality antique lighting. They are informed and personable, a pleasure to do business with. Ron is also detail-oriented craftsman when it comes to repair and maintenance. We have been customers for more than ten years and value both the personal and professional relationship.

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.

We have had Old Lamps & Things repair antique lighting fixtures for us on a couple of occasions. The quality of their work is excellent, service was prompt, and the price charged was very fair. We would definitely use their services again and would recommend them without reservation.
