Need to offboard most of my collection soon « on: November 08, 2017, 05:37:45 AM » Author: DaveMan
Hey lighting gallery members. This is longtime admin Daveman just posting that I need to start getting rid of most of my collection soon. The long and short of it is my father whom I was living with just passed away last week and we need to start opening up space in the house. My collection is taking up more space than I'd like. If you want to visit me, arrange for a road trip or something, I might even be willing to part with something free of charge. The worst I can say is no. I'd charge for things I built myself. My primary goal in collecting was saving stuff from the landfill. Not owning it myself. I may be able to ship smaller items for the cost of shipping unless it's something I built. Then it'll be more. As of now I don't have a means of shipping larger items. Plus I haven't acquired much in a while anyway. Plus if there's any more San Francisco Bay Area collectors around I'd love to meet you. Thanks for understanding and hopefully we'll get some stuff to new homes. Clearing up space is more imperative right now and I don't want to chop down or discard any of this stuff if I don't have to.
Thanks again.

Once again, my condolences to your family during this difficult time.  I saw your original post on Facebook, and would be interested in any 175w /C or /W or other vintage 175w MV lamps you may have laying around.

Sorry for your loss sir.  You and "DieselDucy" were the two who drew me to Lighting-Gallery years ago.  It is cool that we have become "friends" from opposite ends of the country thanks to this crazy technology and love for vintage lighting.  Although I would love to have a piece of your collection, I already have far too much in my own.  I pity the folks who have to go through all my junk when I turn my toes up!

I, too, offer my sincerest condolences. Unfortunately, I don't expect to be able to make a trip across the country in the foreseeable future.

I like my lamps thick, my ballasts heavy, and my fixtures tough.
