Our Mission

It's simple: to provide our customers with the best values in lamps, lamp shades, decorative accessories, and lamp repair service.

Our History

Compton's Lamps & Shades is a family owned and operated business providing San Antonio and South Texas with lamps, lamp shades, lamp repair, and decorative accessories. We began with a store at the corner of McCullough and Ashby called "Electra Lamp Shop." After forty years at that location, we relocated to the Olmos Creek Center at the corner of Huebner Road and Northwest Military Drive. Four generations of our family have helped customers select lamps, lamp shades, finials, mirrors, and numerous other decorative accessories to enhance their homes and have repaired their table lamps, floor lamps, chandeliers, and wall sconces.

Our Future

We will continue to serve our customers in San Antonio and South Texas by providing lamps, lamp shades, lamp repair, and decorative accessories. Through our website, we hope many others outside South Texas will select items we offer to make their homes places where they love to be.
