Hidden In Plain Sight!

Our little gem is such an surprise!  From outside, you’d never imagine that this unassuming storefront hides a such a wealth of treasures! But step through the doors and realize that, for a little while, you can escape into a world of beauty and legend without even opening a book…

In case you believe that we exaggerate, come and see for yourself.

Our business provides simple, custom, and specialty  repairs and retail sales for customers in the Mid-Atlantic region. We primarily cover Virginia, North Carolima, Delaware, and Washington D.C.  Whether you are an antique collector, the owner of a period residence or establishment seeking period lighting fixtures, or someone looking to replace broken glass components, we are the East Coast‘s largest retailer of antique parts and fixtures.



Cody's Lighting and Repair, Inc., named after their grandson, was founded by Richard and Glenda Henson in 1989. Although they started small with a simple booth in a local flea market, the couple quickly collected a wealth of knowledge and the very specialized ability to restore antique and vintage light fixtures.  Presently located in a 2-story building with it's own unique story in the Historic Phoebus neighborhood of Hampton, Virginia, they are still hard at work bringing lovely pieces of history back to present functionality.  Plan your visit today for a marvelous walk through time and a visual delight for the eyes!
