Went in with an antique lamp and Mr. Tipler spent probably 30 minutes with us to find the perfect shade. He said we needed an insulator in one of the two lamp sockets and also a 3 inch extension on the top to make the shade stand up higher. We left for lunch and said we also needed 2 bulbs for the lamp. When we returned they had added the extension, replaced the insulator and said we owed him $4 for the bulbs. So nice to have a business that will do the little things and throw them in for free. Go nowhere else if you need anything to with lamp repair, etc. PS. Also nice to find out that our lamp is worth $650-$700 when we only paid $250. Thanks again.
Great experiece – They fixed my lamp in about 5 minutes (the lamp had been out of commission longer that I would like to admit), and the fee they charged was so reasonable, I had to ask if they were sure.
Best place for repairs, custom lamps and shades ever! – Was recommended by a good friend who has been a Tipler's regular for over 10 years. They fixed my lamp that need a new socket and some tightening in about 4 minutes! I also have never seen so many shades and was so happy to find a place with such variety! I wanted a brightly colored tall drum shade for my lamp and they had hundreds of swatches to choose from and I was able to just give my desired dimensions and it was as easy as that! They ordered it, took about 4 weeks to make and they called when it was ready. Great service and wonderful problem solvers. A real gem of Austin.
Where I finally found the perfect desk lamp – I searched for over a year for the perfect Art Deco desk lamp.
After a college recommended Tipler to me on several occasions I decided to swing by to see what they had.
In less than ten minutes I found exactly what I had been searching for. All of my clients compliment it every day.
I'm very pleased with the unique selection and the very knowledgeable staff. The shop has a genuine, wonderful old world charm.
Great place to buy a special gift for a dear friend, or extra special client. I'll be back for more.
If you are ever searching for just the right lamp and are having trouble finding exactly what you are looking for don't limit yourself to something that is already made into a lamp. We can make any object that you have, home, office, or hobby into a lamp. Find a nice vase, an old teapot that has been sitting in the closet for years, your child's signed baseball or trophy and we can put it to great use as your new one of a kind lamp. A great way to get creative and have meaningful fixtures light up your life!
Excellent Lamp Repair Shop! – For our wedding gift we were given this BIG, beautiful, hand blown, yellow glass chandelier imported from France, that we somehow had to find a way to get back to Austin from Florida. During the trip one of the arms broke off, so we did some research and called around and everyone referred us to Tipler's. We brought in the chandelier and told them that we were trying to avoid paying $$$ for the repair and they were very willing to work with our budget. The repair was excellent and you can't even tell that one of the arms had broken off. I highly recommend them to anyone who wants top service for their lighting fixture needs!
Stroll down memory lane – On Fifth Street near Whole Foods, this hidden treasure is full of delightful lighting. With its own, easily accessed parking, it makes in and out quick and easy. Mr. Tipler has a large variety of restored antique and old lighting from various vintages. When I built my new, "old" home in the Texas Hill Country, I found amazing and delightful lighting pieces for most of my rooms. He has also remade and rewired older pieces for me. I think Tipler's is a unique, one of a kind store for those of us looking for "Light."
Editorial Review – Specialists with a large inventory of antiques, custom lamps and more historical restoration.
