Royal Fleet TV LampHow about this…a Royal Fleet lamp that I haven’t seen before! It seems like after so many years I’d have seen them all. Finds like this definitely keep things interesting, and makes me wonder what else is out there. If you’d like to go for this one, it’s eBay auction #120373433990. Go for it!

Claes CockersI can’t say where I heard this, ahem…, but a certain party (wink-wink) is going to list a Claes Cocker Spaniel TV lamp on eBay Saturday night at 8:00 central time. It’s supposed to be in perfect condition, and the seller’s word is beyond reproach… they’re a close personal friend of mine!

Lamps for Sale… maybe.

Claes Mustang Head TV LampI can’t count the number of times that I’ve received inquiries regarding the purchase of lamps that appear on tvlamps.net, lamps other than those in “The Store”. This usually is the result of confusion regarding the site as a whole, many believing that the entire site is a commercial venture. The reality of it is that only the smallest portion of the site pertains to retail. It’s primarily about sharing information, and I can’t come up with a better way to differentiate between the “display” lamps and the “for sale” lamps… I don’t know how to clarify it further than I’ve done already. Given the number of visitors to tvlamps.net, I suppose that the percentage of folk who misunderstand the site’s layout is extremely low, and my concern isn’t based on any impatience on my part, but rather my desire for a clean layout and clarity of design.
Clearing up that confusion is something I’ll be working on, but this issue has prompted me to rethink my stance on the lamps in my collection. As is often said, everything is for sale for a price, and I’ve decided to accept offers on any lamps on the site…any lamps that I own. Many, many lamps are presented on the site through the kindness of others, and are not in my personal collection. The line, “photos courtesy of…” is a definite giveaway. I don’t own those, and in 99% of the cases, I don’t know who currently does. So, if you really want a lamp that I own, make me an offer. I would be willing to sell some of them at a typical market value, whereas the value I’ll place on others will clearly reflect my reluctance to sell… but it certainly doesn’t hurt to ask!
