HERKIMER – Hundreds of antique and vintage lamps, light fixtures, lamp shades and more are currently for sale at the Arc Herkimer Business Park on East German Street in Herkimer.
Thanks to a generous donation from a Central New York antiques dealer, Arc Herkimer is holding a special sale of the lighting through Feb. 19.
“I happened to be in a store recently and in talking with the owner, she mentioned she was looking to retire and planned on donating her inventory to a Good Will or something similar,” said Kevin Crosley, President and CEO of Arc Herkimer. “So I said, ‘Here, let me give you my card.’”
Crosley said three truckloads of lighting were brought to the business park for this week’s special sale.
“We have beautiful, antique chandeliers, wall sconces, lamps, floor lamps, lamp shades – there’s a lot of really nice pieces here,” he said, adding that whatever does not sell this week will be transported to Arc Herkimer’s Goods Store on North Caroline Street.
The sale runs through Friday, Feb. 19, from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m., and from 5 to 7 p.m. on Feb. 16 and 18.
All sales are final and will be made “as is.” Purchases can be held until the end of the sales day if a customer needs to arrange for transport, but will not be held over until the next day. Prices are at 50 percent off the tag price. Cash, check and cards will be accepted.
Shoppers are asked to drive around to the back of the business park and use the rear east entrance, which is clearly signed.
