    So....how's the hunt going this week fellas? You had better get it all while you can. Brianpore comes home from CA tomorrow and, as you know, he is the champion of the even numbered rounds. I'm sure he will be on a mission to defend his title.

    I got another 5 today. Shoe horn and backscratcher in one! That makes me 14 found before you disqualify them.[​IMG]
    By the way, table lamp, you mean like small candle sticks?

    To clarify.....

    A table lamp is a lamp that sits on a table. Not to be confused with a floor lamp or a desk lamp which sit on the floor or desk respectively.

    Examples of table lamps include but are not limited to the following pictures.....

    The difficulty with this item is that many table lamps are donated after their matching partner was broken.

    Hmmmm. I just realized that the ones I got were missing the hoods. Another reason why one would donate a table lamp. Its still a lamp though.

    No....That is a window candle.

    A window candle is basically a nightlight in the shape of a candle that you place in the window as decoration. They have almost no practical purpose.

    Examples of window candles include but are not limited to the following images....
