    I found a terrific bargain at Mendards. I've been wanting an Ottlite floor lamp to place over my shoulder so I can see better. $150 @ Joanns, even at 40% off this past weekend, they were $90. I went with my husband shopping for lighting for his shop. Found this floor lamp that looked exactly like the Ottlite; uses same bulb. Are you ready for this... I paid $23.45 for it! Love it!

    did you post a picture? Yes, bargains can be found elsewhere. I bought my Ottlite at Office Depot, it was regular price at 62.00, then I had a coupon for $15.00 off. It's the nice big floor lamp that you can configure any which way. Sometimes the best deals are in places we'd least expect!
    Blessings,

    This is a picture of the box, and the light. Menards is a hardware store like Home Depot and Lowe's. I didn't look at Lowe's for this; Menards is usually cheaper.

    I've gotten two (one an ott light & the other an ott-type light) at Tuesday Morning for great prices. Both at times I haven't been looking for them. You had a great find!

    I have this identical light, also from Menard's. I LOVE it!!! It gives lots of great light over a nice sized area. I find myself taking it with me as I move to the ironing area from the sewing machine area.

    For those of you asking what Menard's is, it is an all purpose type "lowes" type of store, but is regional to the northern midwest region. Large chain in Wisconsin, etc.
