Hello from the UK « on: August 06, 2020, 05:26:13 AM » Author: steptoesyard
Hello all.

Just joined up here today, I`m based in the southwest of England and am mainly a collector of vintage Christmas lights from the 1960`s onwards. I`ve had an undying fascination with them since I was a toddler, and now in my 40`s have built up quite a nice collection.

My interest has spread out over the last few years, I have a handful of lava lamps, torches, fibre optic lamps etc. Basically anything that lights up and has some age to it.....

Look forward to reading about some backgrounds from other people on here Wink

Good quality things are awesome. Cheaply made things are not.
