Lamps & Lamp parts

Maybe we should have an estate sale. We are open to suggestions. We have from very nice to stuff we debate scrapping.

These can convert to LED for $8 to $10 last we checked
We have more nice table lamps than we need. Many with cloth lampshades, but the cloth often has water stains.
This sun lamp needs some sort of power supply repair, but the owner would sell for accordingly little.
Often in use, but the LED PL upgrade is $12 to $15
This might also be in use, but we want it gone because their is no LZED bulb upgrade available
When this bulb goes, the sustainability director does not want to shop for the replacement bulb
The water stain on this lamp is almost attractive with the stone base $5
This lamp is so odd it must be from IKEA, but in the wrong hands the plastic swivel will break. $4
This is very bright to treat Seasonal Depression during winter. One might tan a little from it. $5

Now we get into the home lighting Antigue and the Salvage categories:

One lamp requires G24 bulbs that are hard to get in LED. The two that use standard Edison screw bulbs have a broken switch. Will sell these for $3 because a resident might be motivated to fix them and we always need desk lamps.
I have not verified if this one works. We need a volunteer to help fix some lamps for use or sale.

For $18/socket Northwest Architectural Salvage will rewire fixtures, so all the antique floor lamps and ceiling fixtures still have value. They also do a deep cleaning of antique fixtures.

Just an example of sources of lamp parts we use to repair common fixtures here. One reason we promote reuse here is that so many cheap products that students buy to meet their needs are now made with such cheap materials that they don’t last even the few years it takes to complete a degree program. A resident brings a broken lamp to the coordinator for help and someone tries to fix or replace it…
Outdoor Sign cover — we have one for $8. Lots of character in good condition
We have at least 2 of these. One is in use
Obviously in use, but for the right price we’d change it.
We cleaned this up a bit and have glass covers for it. It works but got removed by a CPMC contractor we asked to paint, install laminate flooring and fix a door hinge but who decided to do electrical work without permission. The glass had character in the 1890 Building.
Like what you read? Give Brian Ashman a round of applause.
