Residential Relics has been selling antique lighting and hardware in Minneapolis, Minnesota, for more than 25 years. We specialize in items that were built into homes from the late 1800s to the mid-1900s. We do not sell reproductions, nor do we put reproduction shades on our antique lights. We have made a sincere effort to accurately photograph and describe each item in our catalog, including any flaws or repairs, to let you know exactly what you are buying.

Shop online or visit us in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Although our inventory is too large to be shown in one location, we are happy to arrange any items you'd like to see in our local showroom. We are conveniently located in south Minneapolis just minutes from the airport or downtown. Call to set up a private showing: 612-425-7290.

If you want to buy a fixture from us but need to have it lengthened or shortened, if you have special mounting requirements or desire any other alterations, please contact us to discuss your needs.

Additionally, our large selection of stunning antique lights are available to rent for staging your special event, including weddings, advertising, photo shoots, productions, etc. Please contact us to discuss your needs. (Delivery and pick-up available.)
