While visiting my hometown of Sheffield I called into this shop, had a nice chat with the owner who has had the place for 51 years, I have been shopping there for about 30 years. He did me a good price on a few lamps :-)

I wish I can find a decent hardware store where they still have lots of new old stock bulbs on the shelf

Pretty, please no more Chinese failure.

This has to be my favourite shop, brings back memories of when I used to go years ago, the owner is fab, always does me discount & saves anything he thinks I will want

It is nice that you have the "simple" non decorative switches and receptacles widely available in the UK. I like them more than all the decorative ones, and it is tough call to find any here nowadays

What types of 2D lamps you have available there now ?

I'm not sure on colour temps but imported brands such as eveready seem to be the most popular

well from specialist lighting shops like CP lighting, we can get 2 & 4 pin in 28 and 16w, and 21w, 38w, and 55w, by GE, Sylvania etc, in 827, 830, 835, 840, and 865

and as keiron says we can also get imports like eveready and unknown brands made in china mostly in 827 and 835

That looks like a nice little shop there Like how the owner displayed some of the bulbs on an perforated pegboard panel above the counter.

Long live the great old 20th century quality in electrical & lighting products!

I love shops like these as you can sometimes get lamps that have sat on the shelf for 20 years, but you cant get that in DIY stores

I also remember a good couple of electrical shops on Matilda Street when I visited during the Ward's era! Sheffield is a great city.. Don't remember this interior, what's the shop called?

This shop is called Sismans & is on the wicker, sadly I've not had time to call in last twice I've been over.

Love that display of lamps on the upper wall!

------------------
Sometimes I just think back to the time when those little "hardware store that has everything" type places existed here, and the types of fluorescent stuff they probably had...

Colored Fluorescent's such as F40T12 Red or  Green or Blue are awesome...

Thanks!

I get to Sheffield once every year or so as a 'beer tourist' but like to come back with some pickings to show for the trip! Will pay a visit when next up
