There’s something enchanting about antiques. Perhaps, it is their value, or maybe it is the way they carry history with them. It could even be the way they are reminiscent of those summers at grandma’s house. Many people love to put vintage decor in their homes, adding an antiquated touch to different rooms. While it is fun to add distinction to a home, it can sometimes be stressful finding the perfect piece of decor to complement the rest of the room. Here are a few things we carry that can enhance that timeworn finish you desire.
Vintage Light Fixtures
Of course! We have plenty of antique lamps, sconces, and pendants for you to choose from. With a wide variety of colors and styles modeled after the early 20th century, the possibilities are endless. From industrial wire cage pendants to vintage pharmacy lamps, we have plenty of fixtures that are suited to fit you. Pair a saucer shade wall sconce with an iron desk lamp, or create a matching set of wire cage pendants and sconces. Add the Uttermost decorative glass jugs to complement the archaic look.
Vintage Model Cars, Boats, and Planes
Some of the timeless classics that children enjoyed long ago are being brought back to life through the Authentic Models reproductions of flight models, model cars, and model ships and boats. The handcrafted reproductions are made with authentic materials such as wood, leather, and aluminum, magnifying the extraordinary exquisiteness of these beautiful pieces. These vintage models add a nostalgic, yet refined charm to any room.
Vintage Board Games
Venetian Tic Tac Toe
From dominoes to marbles to tops and more, our new collection of Authentic Models’ board games is sure to bring a classic elegance to your home.

In part one, we discussed the different types of lights and their respective coverage. In this part, we’ll look at the different types of fixtures more closely, helping you choose the right reflector for your growing needs.
Once you’ve chosen your bulbs, you have to choose a fixture to give you maximum reflectivity and coverage. There are about four types of grow light fixtures to choose from: high bays, strips, open air HID, and enclosed HID.
Imagine lighting fixtures in a warehouse. The high bays used for indoor growing are just modified versions of those warehouse fixtures and come in HID, CFL, and linear fluorescent versions. The HID and CFL high bays are great for starter grows, and are only suitable for growing a few plants due to small coverage areas. On the other hand, linear fluorescent high bays are an ideal choice for T5 fluorescent grow lights, as they have larger coverage areas and operate two to eight individual bulbs.
Linear fluorescent strips are only suitable for growing compact rows of vegetables or herbs, as they only operate one or two lamps.
Open Air HID
These types of fixtures are the most common type of grow light because they produce high lumens, have great coverage, and provide sufficient cooling. Open air HIDs include wing fixtures and parabolic fixtures.
Similar to open air HID fixtures, enclosed HID fixtures include air cooled and “cool tube” fixtures. However, these types of HID fixtures offer two distinct advantages over the open air HID fixtures. One, the bulb is protected by a tempered glass lens, which protects your plants and grow area from glass in the event of a bulb malfunction or thermal shock from overspray of water or other liquids. Two, the fixture offers better cooling. Both types of the enclosed fixtures feature flanges on either end for external cooling, allowing you to send a constant stream of air past the bulbs, therefore keeping both the bulb and your plants at a safe temperature.
Types of Timers
Now that we’ve covered the types of grow light fixtures, we’ll discuss the different types of timers and their importance in your grow project.
Just like you and me, plants require sleep. Generally, plants need 15 to 18 hours of light a day during the growth phase and 10 to 12 hours of light during the flowering stage. For the remainder of the time, your lights should be off. You can accomplish your plants’ lighting needs in a few ways: by manually turning your lights on and off (not really recommended) or by utilizing a simple plug-in timer. Manually turning your lights on and off isn’t recommended for one reason: you may forget to turn them on, or you may forget to turn them off, both being detrimental to your plants’ health. The answer to you plants’ lighting needs is a plug-in timer, offered either in digital or analog format.
Analog timers are generally cheaper and somewhat easier to use than digital timers. These types of timers have a dial that turns throughout a 24-hour cycle and trippers that turn the lights on and off. You place one tripper at the time you want your lights on, and another when you want your lights off. When the timer hits these trippers, the lights either turn on or off. However, most types of analog timers lose time when there is a power outage.
Digital timers are definitely the recommended type of timer for your grow light project. These timers work pretty much the same way as analog timers, but offer a few key advantages over the analog timers. For one, they solve the problem of losing time when there is a power outage. These timers have battery backups that remember the time and set points should there be a power outage. Additionally, many of these timers are self-adjusting, resetting themselves for daylight savings time and even calculating sunrise and sunset times based on the time of year.
