Amos Judd & Son antique store merges with Towson lighting retailer

Baltimore Antique Row retailer had sold downtown building

Amos Judd & Son, whose owner sold the store's building on Baltimore's "Antique Row" earlier this year, is merging its operations with Wilson Heritage Lighting in Towson.

Jay Judd, 52, the son of owner Jimmy Judd, who recently bought the long-time lamp restoration and vintage lighting store, said Wednesday that the two businesses complement each other.

"People who are interested in vintage lighting will be interested in antiques also. It only make sense to have it in one building," said Jay Judd, who had done brass refinishing work for the lighting store for more than 30 years.

The antiques store had been operating out of a stall down the block in the Antique Row Stalls since last year. Jimmy Judd decided to downsize and auctioned his building in February.

Jay Judd said he's in the process of moving items from the antique store to the new Towson location. His 82-year-old father and wife, Elizabeth, will join him in operating the new antique and lighting store.
