I remember the day perfectly. Andy and I were sitting in the living room of the house we had just bought a few months earlier. We had been looking for some cool lighting in town and couldn't find anything that we liked and could afford. Andy's brother in law had a vintage lighting shop in Rochester, NY with an amazing inventory of very unique, quality pieces. So instead of buying one piece for the house we bought the whole store and moved it up to Burlington, VT (insert theme song from Beverly Hillbillies). We found one of the last remaining storefronts on Pine St., in an old industrial building located in the heart of the newly minted South End Arts District. It's a great area with a mix of funky artist spaces, galleries, music studios, brewpubs, restaurants, local coffee shops and, of course, us, The Lamp Shop. We’ve earned our reputation as one of Burlington’s best-kept secrets, but now we’re thinking bigger. We’ve turned on our inspiration, let us help you find the switch.
When the Lamp Shop was in need of help, we didn't need to look far. Danielle was working at our son's YMCA preschool and, if a girl can handle 15 toddlers at once then the endless multitasking at the Lamp Shop would be a perfect fit. Danielle has an extensive background in the arts and grew up playing in her dad's workshop. So...a girl who knows how to handle tools, isn't afraid of color, and never says no to a challenge? Sold! It's been 12 years, Danielle keeps getting more creative and we keep getting better because of it!
