I wasn't sure where to post this, but I need to post it somewhere to alert those of us lucky enough to be near a city which has Lee Valley stores! Right now they have a "limited stock, special buy" on a magnifying lamp. I bought 2, one for the living room where I knit, and one for my sewing room, and already I can see how useful it will turn out to be (mainly for rrrripping), especially for those of us with older eyes! I've seen similar lamps online at much higher prices. I don't know how much shipping would cost so couldn't say if it would be worth having the lamp shipped to you. The bulb might be tricky to find for replacement, but I know they are available, and hopefully the bulb included will last thousands of hours anyway.

It looks like a good deal, I may get one! I just called Lee Valley and the replacement bulbs are $4.50. They don't have any now, but they are expecting them to be in stock next week. Sue

Thanks for the info on the replacement bulbs. I had wondered how easy they would be to find. It looks as if the lamps can be bought by mail order, with their regular shipping charges, which are quite reasonable.

I've bought from Lee Valley a few times and I get the catalogs. Never even realized they were in Canada!
Thanks for the info about the lamps.

Thanks! I just ordered one (and several other things...). They also have a great seam ripper...
