Hopefully this counts as it's multiple things and the things I got were 99 cents, but the best things I got were three 1000w MV lamps for 99 cents each. NOS clear Sylvania from 1970, used /C GE Bonusline from 1965, and NOS GE /C from 1973.

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

A few months back my local Lowe's cleared out GE F40T12BLB's for $0.99 a tube. Bought the last 2 cases (12 tubes) they had on the shelf.

Hmm I think I got a few but here are the ones I remember clearly,

- A NOS Philips 18w SOX from 1989 from Restore
- Some F40T12/BLB lamps from Lowe's on clearance
- Probably some vintage NOS Westinghouse fluorescent tubes as most of the Restores here typically price all fluorescent tubes at a dollar each
- Probably also some vintage HID lamps from the Restore, they're typically priced from 1-5 dollars each.
