Industrial & Upcycled ~ Lamps from the Attic



Please pardon the glare, but I must show you these ingenious lamps 
that have been re-imagined and re-purposed from old junk 
that could easily have been found...well...in your attic!

Vintage pieces that have done their time have moved on to bigger and better things.
Through the creativity and talents of Edna & Allen Danielsen, 
and the magic of electricity, time-worn items have received  new careers as lamps.

The Danielsen's business, Lamps from the Attic, is based in Mount Joy, PA.
Created with an industrial vibe, either lit from within or topped with an Edison bulb,
each nostalgic lamp has its own personality. They say, "Every lamp has a story."
Such a perfect conversation piece!

Always up for a challenge, Edna & Allen are also happy to consider
turning your own personal keepsake into a lamp.





My daughter and I spent a leisurely Saturday afternoon 
shopping in fabulous downtown Lancaster, Pennsylvania.
One of our favorite spots is BUiLDiNG CHARACTER, a hodgepodge of
handcrafted and vintage shops tucked down an intriguing alleyway.



Inside, it was totally "illuminating" to find Lamps from the Attic's shop!



Gauges, gizmos, and gears.
We recognized the pitcher from a blender and a vintage candy thermometer.



Antique toys make fun lamps like these~





An vintage chrome hairdryer and a coffee pot.



 Here we see a carburetor, a gauge, and a rotary lawn mower blade.




A rusty tractor seat takes on a new purpose.



A buoy and the stock of an old gun.



BUiLDiNG CHARACTER is at 342 N Queen St, Lancaster, PA.
Check out their website.
