Collections: A Phoenix lamp collector is getting ready to close up his shop
Collections is a series from The Show devoted to the things we acquire and treasure.
Joe Weaver is an antiques shop owner and lamp collector.
Weaver’s antiques shop on north Central Avenue in Phoenix is filled with all kinds of old things — but mostly lamps. Hundreds of them, all rare and restored by Weaver himself.
He’s had the store and a thing for lamps for nearly 50 years — but says he’s getting ready to close up shop very soon now.
