Antique/Retro/Industrial & The Converted!

We also stock a good selection of retro, antique and Industrial lighting, many of which have been cleverly converted, upcycled, or restored and most importantly PAT tested. We search far and wide for these stand out special pieces. One of our most recent finds and a constant talking point with customers in the shop was a delightful early C20th Dentists Apparatus Stand that we had converted to house four retro filament bulbs. It was love at first site for a couple with a good eye from North London who purchased it as a joint wedding present to each other. Who says romance is dead?

It was most certainly the only piece we had ever seen like it and possibly ever will. So if you are after centrepiece lighting or something to really get your dinner guests talking, then come and pay us a visit.

For those who like a real or a faux flame, we have a good selection of candles both plain and scented. We stock Parkminster with their fresh and clean citrusy scents and a more traditional range of French scented candles. And what more could you want than a good selection of hurricane lamps, candlesticks and candelabra to show off your new purchase.

But a product that we are very proud to stock at T & T, that has become a firm favourite with customers coming back for repeat purchases, are our Flicker Without The Flame Real Wax Candles. When looking for a faux candle to stock, we looked at five different manufacturers before making a decision.  The market is littered with cheap nasty silicone and plastic candles, that while maybe look cheaper in price, but end up costing more as you are forever replacing the batteries; or the movement is cheap and simply fails.

The candles are without doubt the best quality real wax and most realistic candle on the market. You also get longest burn times at 1500, roughly 400 hours longer than the industry standard on a single set of batteries. You can even set the timer so they welcome you home in the evening and then turn themselves off, perfect! They even have a remote control. All this without the risk or worry of fire.
