Lamp Doctor

Over the past year, we've collected a few light fixtures from various sources. With few exceptions, they needed some kind of repair/rewire/fix or another. We had one large chandelier rewired by a friend but he has a life too and after realizing how much work is involved, we didn't dare ask him for more help. But we still had a box of light fixtures that needed to get fixed before they were installed.

Thanks to a recommendation, we found Lamp Doctor.
Its run by a sweet couple and small staff who really know what they are doing and are clearly still on their even after so many years in the business. It’s the kind of shop that makes me so happy to live in Brooklyn. I wouldn't say their prices are cheap but their turnaround is quick and they don't try to get you to pay for services you don't need.

Last week we dropped off a pair of old sconces we picked up on vacation and a light fixture we bought during our salvage tour of New England. When we picked those up, we went to drop off the chandeliers we had for a polishing/rewiring/socket repair.
We ended up selling one of these to them and bought a more elaborate chandelier for our living room. Im hopeful it will add some sparkle to the room.
Definitely check them out if you need any repair work or have old chandeliers to sell.

Ill post photos when these babies are finally installed. Its looking closer and closer to that time everyday but we're still a little way off from these finishing touches going in.

    Wow! I have been looking for someone to fix an old table lamp - not valuable, but it's my mom's and her life has been pretty tough the last year and it would so cheer her up. Do they only do sconces and chandeliers, or could the handle a sadly damaged but very sweet table lamp. It could sure be a reason to head out to Coney Island! (Do you really need a reason?)

  3. CasaC - Thanks!

    UWS - Im almost positive they do any lighting fixture but give them a call.

    But if you are coming by subway, this isn't that close to Coney Island. Coney Island Avenue is really long. You'd have to go all the way to the end to get to fun part.

    How far is that from Bay Ridge? Unfortunately Bay Ridge is all I really know of Brooklyn.

  5. Its not that far...maybe a 25minute drive?
