who we are and what we do
We are a small, independent, specialty lighting business on the north coast of California. We specialize in the restoration of vintage lighting fixtures, and the replication of period lighting using new parts (or a combination of old and new).
After thirteen wonderful years in our brick-and-mortar store in Eureka, California — restoring antique lighting, doing lamp repair and selling lampshades, local art and more — we closed our shop on the corner of 2nd and F in March of 2020.
Instead, our lighting inventory is here, online. Feel free to call, email or text with any concerns you may have. It will be the owners who have made this their livelihood, who will personally assist you and answer your questions.
Please note, however, that we no longer offer lamp repair service. Also, we do not give appraisals or advise those looking to sell.
To all our former, in-person customers and curious on-lookers, thank you for all the many days of sharing stories and photos, laughing, and searching out the most beautiful and appropriate lamps, lighting fixtures and lampshades for your homes. It was an honor and a joy, and a fascinating chapter of our lives. And thank you, Humboldt County, for supporting local, independent businesses like ours.
local event July 11-23
As you can imagine, picking out a lampshade online is next to impossible. It’s so much beter to shop in person, with your lamp. That way, you can try on different shades, and see what looks best, before you buy.
When we closed our shop in Old Town, we had to pack up and store all our lovely lampshades, hoping we would someday be able to find them all homes with a big, liquidation sale. Well, that day has come!
Please join us at the Eureka Woman’s Club, 1531 J Street, Eureka CA, 10am – 6 pm, July 11-16 and July 18-23 for our Last Chance, Everything Must Go, Lampshade Clearance Sale.
Shop early for best selection. And, by all means, bring your lamps with you.
P.S. Prices unchanged since 2019, enjoy 10% -50% off throughout the sale’, and we’ll pay the sales tax, so you don’t have to.
P.P.S. We will also have vintage floor lamps, table and desk lamps, ceiling medallions, finials, nite lites, hardware, and anything else I can think of to bring.
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.
