    I went into our local Goodwill Store yesterday and could not believe what I found--a new Ott Lite--still in the box with all the original packaging still wrapped around the electrical cord and all the other parts. It looked like it had never been opened. Best of all was the price...$20.00. I used it last night while working on a project for our church VBS, really helped me see better at night. Think I'll stop in tomorrow, you never know what you will find!

    If you're old enough, one day a week they have either 15 or 25% off for senior citizens. Here you only have to be 55 and it's on Wednesdays.

    I have noticed our Joanne's has recently (within the last few months) donates a lot of their clearance and damaged items to Goodwill. Target does this also.

    Great deal on your light! Congratulations!

    I'd love to have an Ott light ... that was really a lucky find! I'll have to get one at JoAnn's sometime with a coupon.

    Wow you are one lucky girl. I have been wanting one but cant part with the money. I used to stop at goodwill once in while, but havent for some time. Looks like I need to get back in the habit.

    You won't be sorry you got it. I have had one for ...umm...probably 10 - 15 years and the cord is worn out almost.
    I have a desk top with magnifier that DD uses all the time. I would like another near my sitting chair for handwork. Someday.

    I have a floor OTT behind my sofa, I use everyday for the past I don't know 6 - 7 years?
    My first one is the table top, it travels with me, and I made a case for it; got tired of wraping it up in fabric and plastic bag.
