i got a catalogue this wk and on the cover is a BELL&HOWELL Sunlight lamp for $44.00. looks a lot like the OTT lamp we talked about i an earlier thread. does anyone have experience with the B&H product?
this is a floor lamp. the table lamp is $35.00. these prices are drastically lower than similar OTT lamps that i have seen and are full spectrum.
replacement bulbs are 2 for $18.00
any input would be greatly appreciated.
oh btw the catalogue is MAKE LIFE EASIER.

Is this the same floor lamp, you got me curious and I found this one for $29.99 and 2 replacement bulbs for $19.99 shipping for me is $17.00

What I wonder is if you can use any similar bulbs for these or would we be locked into buying the same brand? Does anyone know about this? Ott lights are waaay out of my price range but I would love to own one that is way more reasonable, too.

this looks like the exact same thing. can't tell from the "kitchengadget" web sight what the brand name of the lamp, but appears to be the same. the difference in price is made up in shipping cost. the catalogue has free shipping on orders over $20. and the table lamp is only $35. i can't find a web site at all in the cat. called the 800# and they gave me the web site
www.starcrestonline.com
not much of a web site. but can order the cat. from there
or you can call 800-522-0227.
it looks like this company may be new as they are just setting up the web site.
i like the kitchengadget web site. have you ordered from them before?
i will let you know if i order the lamp.

I have not ordered from this website, was just checking out other sites. I will give them a call tomorrow and a couple of other places and try and find out about the bulbs. Thanks for bringing this up, I thought this lighting would be out of my league for another few years until the prices started coming down. I ordered a catolgue from the place you mentioned and will place my order from them. I do not know how long the kitchen gadget site keeps their current inventory available, it looks like it could be shorter term on some items. Thanks again Nanabirdmo and I will let you know what I find out :D

I just found a table lamp at JoAnns on clearance sale for $19.97. I haven't actually sewed or cut using it yet but it seems nice.
