who we are and what we do
We are a small, independent, specialty lighting shop on the north coast of California. Ken specializes in the restoration of vintage lighting fixtures, and to a lesser extent, the replication of period lighting using new parts (or a combination of old and new).
The number and variety of vintage lighting fixtures and shades has grown a lot since we began in 2007, and there is now a wide selection of new lampshades as well. Ken does the restoration work and offers lamp repair service there, on site, and Sara helps out on Saturdays and whenever Ken is away.
When customers come in to Old Town Antique Lighting, or call on the phone, it’s the owners who have made this their livelihood, who personally assist them and answer their questions.
how to find us
We invite you to come peruse these wonderful lighting fixtures in person. Located in Humboldt County, on the Redwood Coast of Northern California, Eureka boasts an abundance of historic homes, local art, music, theater, shopping and dining, and access to some of the world’s most breath-taking, natural wonders — rugged coastline, towering redwood trees, majestic mountains and wild rivers.
We are located in the heart of Eureka’s historic Old Town district, situated between Highway 101, which becomes 4th and 5th Streets in Downtown Eureka, and the Waterfront, with its newly renovated Boardwalk, on Humboldt Bay. If you’re driving north on Hwy 101, turn left on F Street and go three blocks; if you’re driving south on Hwy 101, turn right on F Street and go two blocks. We’re right there at the stop sign, on the right, at the corner of 2nd and F.
Parking is available on the street, in a handful of small city parking lots nearby, and in a large, unmetered lot on 1st Street at the foot of D Street, three blocks away.
what to do when you get here
In addition to vintage lighting fixtures and lamps, Old Town Antique Lighting also has a great selection of new lampshades. Fine quality, tailored lampshades… lightweight, inexpensive, hardback lampshades… lampshades made of real mica or Texas rawhide… hundreds of lampshades in stock. Of course, we recommend that you bring your lamp with you when you come in to pick out a new shade! Although lampshades are not available through our website, feel free to contact us, and we’ll do what we can to help.
We are pleased to offer new, superior quality lighting in a variety of genuine Arts & Crafts styles, made in the USA by Arroyo Craftsman. Handcrafted individually from raw brass in their small plant in Baldwin Park, California, fixtures from Arroyo Craftsman are built to last and come in a variety of naturally oxidized finishes that are applied by hand and take days to cure. We invite you to peruse their website and contact us for pricing and with any questions you might have. Please allow four to eight weeks for your fixtures to be ready.
