Lights, Lamps and Lanterns...... Handmade, Upcycled, Vintage, Retro..... I Love Lights!!

Some years ago i moved to France, renovated an old barn and made it into my new home, and the only thing missing was some nice lights......
So i searched and searched but could not find anything i liked or if i did find something it was ridiculously expensive! so i set about making my own light fittings and loved every minute of it!
I had previously spent many years working with electrics and electronics and also in a lighting retailer so i had a rough idea of what i was doing, but everything else has been created either in my head or on a scrap of paper!
i started making new lights from scratch with wood, tiles, metal sheets etc.
i then had a go at restoring old antique and vintage lights, i have also created lights out of every day objects such as wooden crates, metal reflectors, boxes ...
And i have also created lights out of more unusual things such as milk urns, rusty old pots, a copper kettle, even pieces of pipe!

so now i do a bit of everything, from using modern materials to create a new, minimalist style light...... to restoring a 100 year old oil lantern!!

Welcome to my dream,
I am a one-man business (literally!) i aim to create unusual lighting items and sometimes other products too, most items are made to order and some items may be made previously ready to ship.

i try to be as accurate as possible with photos/dimensions/descriptions etc. but with everything being handmade and often from natural materials like wood and logs then each item will vary slightly.
If you wish to see the exact item you will receive then please message me and I can send photos once it has been made to show you before shipping.

Remember:.... if you don't see what you like then please do not hesitate to ask me.....
I am here to sell so I will always try my best!!

Warmest regards

Owen

Shipping

If i have something ready to send i will try to send it within 1 business day, if something is made to order as many of my items are then this obviously takes longer, this depends on how many orders i am currently working on and how many of something is purchased, unfortunately i cannot constantly keep updating my times whenever my orders go up or down, so i will keep you informed at every step,

IMPORTANT!!
I aim to ship most items everywhere around the world, and i always send all items recorded with tracking and full value insurance against loss/damage/theft.
but this insurance is only valid if the goods are checked PRIOR to being signed for, and that any damage/breakages/missing items etc. are noted and mentioned BEFORE signing for the package!
so please check/inspect and unpack the package in front of the delivery person, if they refuse to wait then please clearly mark this in the paperwork you are signing. with something insured the person delivering should understand and appreciate the contents needs to be checked, and allow you to do so.

i will try my best to help with any items lost or damaged but i cannot be responsible for the companies delivering them.

CUSTOMS / VAT / TAX:
When items are sent to a country outside of Europe where i am based then there may be costs such as customs,tax or vat that need to be paid before the item can be delivered or collected, these costs are entirely for the customer to pay and not me, i have no control over them.

Packaging:
I try my best to reuse and recycle packaging/boxes etc. whenever possible, this is great for the environment and helps me to keep my shipping costs to a minimum which is passed on to my customers, so please understand that your item may be delivered in a used box/packaging which may even be labelled as something else, my priority is that it is safely received- not that it looks pretty.

Additional policies and FAQs

As you can see, all the products for sale here are either totally handmade by me, handmade by someone else and restored by me, or simply antique/vintage. With these types of products and the fact that every item is totally unique, it is not at all possible to have them electrically tested/certified, i am very competent when it comes to using electrical and electronic components and materials, but unfortunately i cannot accept any responsibility for anything i have made or restored. It is always the choice and discretion of the customer to decide if something is safe to use. I always recommend the installation of any electrical items by a qualified electrician or competent person.

Thanks for understanding.
