Restore finds (September 1st, 2018) (Part 2)

Got all of these lamps for free since the Santa Clara Restore does not sell incandescents anymore and they were all going to the trash (according to one of the employees).

Most of the bulbs are GE halogens but there are a few other bulbs mixed in as well.

you find out why They stop selling bulbs and hid lamps there? This would be a big turn off
reasons not going go that restore anymore.
orolly reasons there not selling is that they are prolly charging too much for them so they sat on shelf not selling as fast as they would like.

i have one restore stop selling fluorescent

No LED gadgets, spins too slowly.  Gotta  love preheat and MV. let the lights keep my meter spinning.

The Santa Clara Restore is pretty small so that might be why.

Old lighting is, and will always be, the best lighting.

IIRC About a year ago, Silverliner told me (in a comment on an older post) that he has not been to the Santa Clara Restore yet.

Edit: Here is the post

I don't ever see HID bulbs at the restore here. I think it's probably that those types of bulbs don't get donated as often because it's not likely that people have them sitting around. Mostly I see incandescent or CFL bulbs at the one here.

I’m so glad you got these, and for free! That makes me so sad that many perfectly good incandescents are going into the trash. I hope I can always continue to find incandescents in ReStores.

Philips DuraMax and GE Miser forever!  Classic incandescents are the best incandescents!

The ReStores in my area no longer sells incandescent bulbs or fluorescent lights so I don't go to them anymore.

This ReStore still sells fluorescent tubes but any F40T12s that pop up usually sell out pretty quickly due to them being more popular in this area than F32T8s (in residential areas, most commercial areas are all F32T8).

Old lighting is, and will always be, the best lighting.

The local Restores here still sell incandescent, fluorescent and HID lamps but it seems like they have been getting lesser and lesser of the older stuff now. One near me had a couple of 1kW Sylvania MH lamps when I stopped by last week.
