Gaylord’s Lamps and Shades

Gaylord’s has been lighting the way for customers since 1953.

Two years ago, it moved from 4620 Leland St. to its present location on Woodmont Avenue.

The newer space allows for more efficient service, says Mel Levinson, who has owned Gaylord’s for the past 13 years and has been in the lamp business for nearly half a century.

With an extensive array of parts on hand, repairs are all done in-house (as customers wait, when possible).

Fees range from $10 to upwards of $200 for a chandelier.
