Old Fashion Light Bulbs

Old-fashioned light bulbs are back in fashion. There is defiantly something magical about Antique items. From clocks to cars, some things are just not made the way they used to. The nostalgic atmosphere those Edison light bulbs give is now sought after by many of the upscale restaurants, bars, hotels, and retail stores around the world. Lighting manufacturers are adding new styles of these old fashioned bulbs on a monthly basis. At we try our best to keep up with all the new bulb shapes and sizes. Globe and chandelier bulbs with the old tungsten filament are now being made in shapes that weren’t even made before. Visit our online store to view the latest old fashioned light bulbs.

Vintage Light Bulbs

Hi Nostalgic Bulb fans,
I’m Julie, and I blog over at
I love to decorate our home & cook yummy food for my family.
Thank you, Nostalgic Bulbs, for inviting me to blog on your blog 🙂
I absolutely love your products.
Especially, these babies…
Vintage light bulbs are very hot these days.
No pun intended, but really they are.
Especially at my house.
I use them throughout our home.
Nostalgic Bulbs are the most beautiful bulbs I have ever used.
Not only are they nice to look at,
they are reasonably priced.
They also are delivered quickly to your front door all nicely packaged.
Let me show you a few examples throughout our home.In our kitchen, we use the “beacon” style.
You can see they really bring out the crystals in our pendant lights.
If we had used a regular bulb, it would take away from the light fixture.
You can find more information on our DIY kitchen makeover here: Kitchen Makeover
I also used vintage light bulbs in our light fixture over our table.
These are the Nostalgic chandelier version.
These are beautiful lit, dimmed, or even off.
When we have company I usually dim them and they really set the mood.
When it’s homework time, back up they go.
Here’s another example of the vintage chandelier bulbs
in our master bedroom and master bathroom.

I also happen to use the vintage bulbs in our halls.
They are best for light fixtures you can see through.
Not only is there less glare, but they are gorgeous.
Thank you Nostalgic Bulbs.
You make decorators like me light up!

Design Your Own Edison Vintage Pendent!

Would you like to design your own Edison Nostalgic Pendent?  We thought you would!! just added a new service to our store.  For a nominal fee we will put together the lamp you design.  Choose the style, color and length of the lamp cord.  Choose a socket from out Bulb Sockets section, and choose a bulb.  We just stared this last week and already got to make some really cool and creative Lamps.  Try for yourself, it’s fun!!

Cloth Covered Wire

Rayon or cotton covered electric cord has been getting more popular in the past few years. People are using it to restore old lamps, vintage fans, or make antique looking pendants or swag lamps. It’s available in many cool fun different colors that were never available in the past. At we carry both cotton and rayon covered cord in red, blue, denim, purple, brown, black, gold and many more cool colors. We are also constantly adding more colors in both rayon and cotton. You can also choose between the twisted, parallel, or the regular round style, the different gauge sizes and the number of conductors. I personally love the red twisted wire. It really sticks out in whatever you use it in. It really makes a difference when you make or restore a lamp, a pendant or a vintage fan. Our idea is to give you all the material you need to create your own lamp. It’s easy to do and fun. We are also adding some readymade lamps and pendants using the Antique look of the cloth covered cord with vintage looking sockets and plugs. Please let us know if you have any suggestions or requests. We could also put it all together for you if you not into connecting wires, plugs and sockets. Choose from our selection of the cloth covered wire, our plugs, and our sockets. Tell us how long you would like the wire to be and what style of cord. Email us at
