I'm very fortunate in that I have been lucky enough to accumulate and inherit many useful household items during my lifetime that are very much in demand these days . Such as an array of beautiful oil lamps. Some very expensive old Aladdin oil lamps
Others not as old but still very useful
But none as useful as this little beauty once known as a chamber lamp. I have 6 of these for around my house, most antiques.
I love the thick sturdy bottom that is very stable and the little handle that enables you to carry this little lamp easily from room to room . They have started to reproduce these little lamps and I see them run anywhere from $15 to $20 per lamp.
Recently after watching this video I have found something that might be even a better bargain for lighting for short periods during those emergency situations.
Lamp fittings that fit on top of your mason jars.
You can get 4 for $19.96 plus shipping from the Amazon.com link above.
Add to that some of those pint mason jars with the handles and that would give you 4 lamps for the price of 1 . Now this does not include globes but I see globes in second hand stores all the time.
Just an idea for those of you who don't have a stash of the original lamps stuck back for a rainy day or a nasty storm.
