#LampJunkieUK For the love of it – Sharing the joy!

Every individual piece is loving hand-made by myself Stephanie Young, an independent trader based at Shoreham-by-sea in the UK. There is a full process of care starting from delicately cleaning each item to remove decades of grim, then restoring its natural beauty with a variety of techniques to embellish, preserve and stop the ageing process. On the opposite end I age and tarnish additional fixtures, fittings, screws and bolts to compliment each vintage item. Then there is a choice of colour and design of the fixture, cable, bulb, right down the to the plug to create a bespoke design. The aim is not to just make a lamp, but to give it a personality of its own.

The special thing about making these one-off individual lamps it that every piece has a story to tell. I find it really interesting discovering the history of each item. I believe the new owners will also enjoy this snapshot of past times, so I provide a gift card keepsake with each lamp.

LampJunkieUK is an independent local trader. All my lamps are hand-made with love and are one-off pieces and are not highly manufactured.

I love working with my hands, creating something real out of an idea, getting out and about to rummage for the perfect item and connecting with the local community. My passion is limitless and I hope to bring some of this excitement into the lives of others.

It is always a very sad occasion when someone close passes away. We left with a lot of memories, but also a variety of belongings. Some objects are too precious to throw away. By upcycling into a bespoke lamp you can turn this keepsake into something unique to be displayed in your home or office. To be treasured and admired. Please contact me to discuss further.

I am always looking for new people to work with and create some amazing bespoke lamps – so let’s talk commissions! Perfect for the enthusiast, sports person, car crazed personality, passionate chief, brave traveller… I can make a gift like no other, made to order, with the receiver in mind.

For business this is also a great way to show your customers your adventurous side. How about a vintage hairdryer lamp for a salon, typewriter for a publishers, abacus for an accountants… the list is endless! Contact me today so we can start this journey together!

Why not customise the plug and colour of cord – there is so much to talk about – I’m excited, are you?
