Old fixtures see the light
Thomas Allie has been buying, repairing and selling light fixtures at The Lighting Palace for three years, first in Old Folsom and now at the 57th Street Antique Row in east Sacramento.
“People bring you lamps, and their dog has chewed the cord, and they don’t know how to rewire the lamp themselves, and they don’t want to get electrocuted,” Allie said. “We rewire and repair lamps. It’s a little bit of a lost art form.”
Allie told me that he acquired his repair and business skills during the 19 years he worked at Lamps Plus. He opened The Lighting Palace with 400 square feet and expanded into 2,000 square feet a year ago.
He takes some fixtures on consignment, but he buys most of them at flea markets and antique shows. His store, Suite G at 855 57th St., is packed with chandeliers, floor lamps and more.
