Last month I gave you a verbal picture of Sunlan's main room. There is another room just as large on the north side of the building. When new, the Sunlan building was two stores: a drug store and Anderson Meat Market.
Explore the first room. In the back right you will see a doorway that leads to creativity and the old-time world of light. As you stand in the doorway, you will see spools of wire, many colors and styles. To the left are stacks of drawers filled with lamp parts to create or repair fixtures. We have the inter parts to create your lamp.
The colors and sparkle of our holiday lights will draw you to the window at the other end of the room. Year-round selection for indoor and outdoor lighting. Strings in white, green, black, and brown. Bulbs in many styles and colors.
In the center of the store are many of the lights you grew up using. The light bulbs you no longer see in other stores. We will carry these lights as long as we can source them. We still stock the long fluorescent lamps.
Ruth said it best in her Google review, "Sunlan is a unique store. It has a huge selection of light bulbs, ranging from fairly normal to extremely unusual. We always end up getting something extra and fun for our kids when we go. The people that work there are always happy to help"
