As well as offering a lifetime guarantee and repairs, we also recently launched a new element to the business where clients can trade-in their skinflint lights after a year (or more) of use in exchange for 50% credit off a future purchase. This is our commitment to sustainability, preserving the heritage of each light we salvage, and keeping these beautiful and highly engineered pieces in use forever (rather than in landfill). 


"skinflint's vintage lighting offering in addition to the quality and uniqueness of product stood out from the start, as has their excellent and personable customer service. Over the numerous years we've been working together, skinflint has helped support BrewDog's growth and global reach, constantly delivering on time and often within tight timeframes."
Will Brown, Head of Projects & Maintenance, BrewDog


"Being based in the U.S. we appreciate being able to easily access skinflint's large offering of vintage lights online, as well as their helpful and speedy response to any queries we may have. Well-versed in global logistics and wiring-conversions, their stand-out product arrives on site safely and efficiently. Although… skinflint is our secret and we don’t want to give anything away to our competitors!"
Bill London, Founder & Designer at BLDG, Washington DC


"Collaborating with a local, forward-thinking brand whose unique product range not only works aesthetically for our interiors, but helps tell the story of our values and aligns with our environmental goals, is a win-win for us. As a fellow B Corp we are committed to using business as a force for good, and skinflint’s buy-back scheme makes complete sense when it comes to updating our stores."
