Is your site secure?

Yes. You pay through PayPal, the world's premier electronic payment solution, not through this site. We never even see your credit card number; PayPal just tells us that you've paid and we ship you your stuff. We get your money through PayPal later.

Do I have to have a PayPal account to buy?

No, you can pay with your credit card without a PayPal account.

 

Have a question about a recent or future purchase? Contact me anytime at the link on the bottom of the page. Here are a few questions I am asked at Art Shows. 

 
Where do you find your metal and other pieces used for your lamps? 

I find parts all over the place! My goal is to keep cost down for my customers so I go to junkyards, estate sales(where I have dug in the dirt for things), curbs and some people let me go through their garage! Keeping cost low is important because I want everyone to be able to buy art. I occasionally source special items if a customer is looking for something specific. 

Where do the reproduced antique bulbs come from?

Most of the bulbs in my lamps are the "Edison" style lightbulbs. I purchase them from 1000bulbs.com. They are not a wholesaler so you can buy 1 or 50. 

How do I care for my "new" lamp or lighting fixture?

All lamps can be cleaned with a damp cloth and non-abrasive cleaner if needed. Keep in mind that some of the metal has been finished with an industrial grade urethane to prevent further rust and give it a shine, so harsh cleaners will damage the finish. Metal parts may be warm to the touch after the light has been on for a while so please keep it out of reach of children and pets!!! When changing the bulb use the same caution as with all electrical appliances. Unplug the lamp first, then put the new bulb in. 

Are the electrical componets new or antique?

ALL electrical componets are brand new. That includes the wiring, switches, sockets, plugs and bulbs. If any electrical components came with one of my old parts it will be removed and discarded. 

Do you have a storefront?

I do not have a storefront but work in a fun, junk-filled shop! Keeping overhead low by not paying rent for a store helps me keep costs low for you. If you would like to visit my workspace in the country, email me to set up an appointment.
