Lamp Repair

April 24 @ 11:00 am - 2:00 pm

We have a new visiting Lamp Repair expert! Tom Novak comes to us highly recommended by our celebrity Crystal & China "Fixer" Mary Lou Gates.

Bring your broken table and floor lamps of all kinds into our Gift Gallery during event hours, and Tom will make them functional again. Please remove the lampshade and leave it at home (unless it's required for the lamp to operate). Some simple repairs can be completed onsite, but most lamps will be taken to Tom's workshop and returned to The Little Traveler for pickup. Please allow for up to two weeks between drop-off and pickup. 

Tom's repair services include rewiring, installing new switches, replacing cords, converting to different switch types, and installation of new light sockets. He can also inspect lamps to determine if they are safe to use and troubleshoot to identify why a lamp is not working. Please note that Tom does not typically work with chandeliers, but if you have one in need of repair, you may bring in a picture of it and Tom will assess whether or not he'll be able to help with it. 

About Our Repair Expert

For more than five years, Tom Novak has been building, custom making, and repairing lamps. He originally became interested in lamp work when he was intrigued by steampunk pipe lamps and decided to build one for himself. He then began to experiment with other styles and also started restoring vintage table and floor lamps. Many people asked Tom if he could repair their lamps, so he added lamp repair to his services.
