Where can I find examples of Merrimack and Monitor’s reclaimed lamps online?

What reclaimed lamps and light fixtures do you have in stock?

Our stock consistently changes from week to week. You can CONTACT US to see what we have in stock or you can visit us on ETSY, CARGOH or KRRB to see our curated selection of available lamps, fixtures and furniture.

Can you reproduce a reclaimed lamp that has previously sold?

In most cases YES! However, it is important to note that the lamps and fixtures we create are made from reclaimed or salvaged materials. Reproduction depends on the availability of parts. We can also not guarantee “exact” replication due to the unique of the items we use… but we usually get pretty darned close.

Can I order multiple quantities?

In most cases YES! This would require a Custom Order (see FAQ’s / Custom Orders) and would depend on the availability of parts and materials. We are usually able to accommodate however, and if we foresee a problem, we will notify you prior to the confirmation of your order.

How do I place an order for a reclaimed lamp or light fixture?

For single lamp or fixture purchases, if you don’t what you’re looking for on ETSY, CARGOH or KRRB you can place an order using our Custom Order Form.

What type of light bulbs do your lamps and light fixtures use?

All sorts! Almost all of our reclaimed lamps and fixtures are wired to standard US 120V to avoid the need for transformers or converters. We use standard, medium, candelabra and bayonet bases and bulbs ranging from 10W to 300W. Most of the bulbs we include with purchase are filament bulbs. All of this may sound Greek, so know this: Nothing you buy from us will be hard to maintain. Light bulbs included.

Where can I order additional bulbs for my lamp or light fixture?

From Us! Because we buy our bulbs in bulk, direct from the manufacturer, we get them at extremely low cost. We will gladly replace your bulbs, order new ones or help you find the bulb you are looking for – at cost! For example, some of our fixtures come with specialty antique filament bulbs that retail in stores for over $20 each. We will order new ones for you at cost (roughly $4.50). That’s about the same price as a standard, long-life light bulb.

Do you offer installation services for ceiling or sconce light fixtures?

Yes! We have partnerships with certified electrical contractors all over the country. We will gladly setup installation services at a reduced cost. Please mention that you would like to discuss installation at the time of purchase or on your order form.

How do I care for my lamp or light fixture?

We’d love to say that our reclaimed lamps and light fixtures are indestructible, but you would probably be spend the next 30 days trying to come up with a way to break ‘em just to prove us wrong. So, in the absence of indestructibility, we would like to offer some general tips on how to care for this precious piece of art we call a lamp.

  1. Don’t throw it or drop it.
  2. Don’t bathe with it.
  3. When cleaning or dusting, do not use corrosive chemicals.
  4. Don’t bathe with it.
  5. Only use light bulbs that fit the base. Do not use extensions or reducers.
  6. Don’t throw it or drop it.
