Appleton Antique Lighting

This small shop just down from Coolidge Corner has a nice selection of antique lights, sconces, and chandeliers, but the proprietor’s real skill is in turning that old urn you found at Brimfield into a beautiful lamp, or rewiring the one you find in Grandma’s attic. A good selection of shades as well.
