    I've been wanting to add another Ott Light to my sewing space, but had balked at the price for the floor lamps. I almost picked one up at JoAnn Fabrics this weekend when they were on sale; however, they didn't have the model I wanted. The prices ranged from $75-99 on sale.

    When I was at Lowe's hardware store about an hour later looking at lamps, I happened upon an Ott Light floor lamp for $55.00 which looks remarkably like the one that JoAnn sells for $180 online. The biggest difference is that mine is black, which I prefer. They had very good prices on one of the table models as well.

    Cheers, K

    That goes to show us that we have to think out of the box when buying things for our quilting rooms. And the best part is that you saved $ for more fabric.

    You can also sign up on their website and they will send you notices of sales, specials, etc. They will run 2 for 1 sales periodically, too

    I got an awesome deal on a Ott-lite from Lowe's a few years ago. I don't remember the price, but it was like 1/3 of what the same model was at Joanns.

    You will want to check, but my Lowe's actually carries the replacement light bulbs for about a third of the cost at the fabric stores. When I find them, I always purchase a couple because they don't have them all the time and they go fast.

    Yep - mine carries the replacement bulbs as well. I was very excited to see that.

    I got one at Big Lots for around $30 that is also very similar to one of the ones they sell at JoAnn's. It's a bendable floor lamp. I keep it by my recliner for reading and hand sewing.
