Going on our third year of selling those Nostalgic Bulbs there is one questions that is constantly being asked. Are Nostalgic bulbs dimmable? Well, yes. All of the Nostalgic, Antique, or Vintage Edison bulbs are dimmable. All of those bulbs are incandescent bulbs which are dimmable with any dimmer. The use of dimmers with those bulbs is a great idea. The real beauty of them is the filament. When dimmed down to really low light they look magnificent. The filament is just bright enough so you can look at it without hurting the eyes. Just a pleasure to look at. I personally love the way they look when dimmed down. I would highly recommend using dimmers if possible.
I’m Julie, and I blog over at redheadcandecorate.com.
I love to decorate our home & cook yummy food for my family.
I absolutely love your products.
Especially, these babies…
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.

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.
in our master bedroom and master bathroom.

They are best for light fixtures you can see through.
Not only is there less glare, but they are gorgeous.
You make decorators like me light up!
Welcome to nostalgicbulbs.com blog. We will keep you posted on any news, new products and the day to day activities of our new business. One of the first topics I will talk about is the phase out of the incandescent bulbs. I believe the 100 watt incandescent is already phased out and by 2014 all those bulbs will be out. The big question is whether or not our vintage reproduction bulbs will be phased out as well. I have heard a few stories about this subject. Some people say that those Antique reproduction bulbs will not be phased out since the fall under specialty bulbs and some say they will. Does anyone have any thoughts on this!
