Check out this store in Hampton, Virginia — two stories chock full of vintage table lamps, boudoir lamps, floor lamps, chandeliers, sconces, and replacements globes, shades and parts  — spotted by Suzy aka Georgia Peachez. You will recall, Suzy is world famous for her Christmas wreaths made from vintage ornaments. She writes:

Cody’s is a lighting store like no other place on this planet. Two stories of vintage lighting fabulousness. Hundreds and hundreds of lamps, floor lamps, chandeliers, wall sconces, shades, you name it. All vintage. No repro here, just the real deal.

Pilgrimage to the Lamp Love, anyone? If so, be sure to take photos and send me more reports! See nine more, eye-popping photos over at Georgia Peachez’ blog. Thank you, Suzy!

Update: Thanks to Kelli, who let us know that Cody has now posted photos to a website here  … that said, I need to give them a call and let them know we’re more interested in seeing mid mod and late pre-war, rather than the Victorian lights they’ve posted…

    O-M-G! I’m actually so THANKFUL they are 3000 miles from the west coast. This store would mean bankruptcy for me, for sure!

    Antique and vintage lighting is my # 1 weakness….tile is great, but lights are the bomb for me. Antique lights is also the reason I wish I could have 6 different houses so I could go hog wild with every era of vintage lights and lamps!

      I’m with you, Tami! I love lamps and light fixtures more than just about anything else. My whole house would look like a lighting store if I had my way. I only aspired to do each room in my house in a different era, but six houses–now you’re talking!

    Pam! I’ve been there many times, they are only a mile or two from my house. They are amazing. They literally have everything from every-era. Would you like for me to go by and take some pictures?
