There is something about a cottage by the sea that is both nostalgic and life renewing. It's about the history of all the families who lived there and enjoyed it for generations and it's also about giving it new life to be enjoyed again. If you are lucky enough to find an old beach cottage or if you just want your home anywhere in the country to give you that feeling...there are numerous ways to achieve that. Think back to the things you loved as a child. Was it the books on your grandmother's shelves, the antique washer, the wildflower garden or the smell of fresh baked bread. Recreate that in your own life to then pass down to your children to cherish.

What does Authentic Ship Lights and Salvage mean?

We have searched and selected the best of the best Ship Salvage pieces like passageway lights, Lanterns, Ship's wheels, Brass Portholes, Bulkhead lights, Sea glass Floats, and more. They are salvaged from old ships after the ship's work is done. Once the ship is retired, the valuable lights and pieces that once were used on the ship are removed. They are typically found in ports in places like Indonesia, Java, and  Bangladesh.

Can the Vintage ship lights be wired for my home and do they take regualr light Bulbs?

Most of our ship lights are salvaged from old ships and we can have them UL Wired for an additional fee. You can also purchase as is and have your local licensed electrician wire the light for you.
