I bought a Tubular light bulb from Nostalgic for a specific project. But first, a bit of background. We have an old kerosene lamp that has been a "decoration" in our home for years. I stumbled on a website while aimlessly clicking on the internet, and...wait! What's this? Our lamp with a light bulb instead of a wick? Yes! That's exactly what we need in our home. There are quite a few Instructables available on the internet. I used instructions from a few, modified them for my purpose, and got to work. This lamp was inexpensive to build because I had the wire/plug combo and lamp socket sitting in a corner of the workshop. I don't like to throw things out that I know will be used again, and this was the project that used some of the "stuff" that I just can't throw out. After only a couple of quality hours with a drill, dremmel and metal file, the lamp base was done. I placed the glass chimney on top, and sat back trying to decide the type of bulb that I would need - and it had to look appropriate. I went looking on the internet for bulb ideas, and to check out what types of bulbs are available, because I need a specific length, and it had to be a tubular style bulb. I typed in "nostalgic light bulbs", and clicked this website. What a great name for a company. It didn't take long to find what I needed on their site. I found the type of bulb, and the exact length required for this build. It might sound hokey, but it's as if they made this bulb for my kerosene lamp.So, let your creative imagination run wild, because you will find everything you need to turn your idea into reality with Nostalgic Bulbs. If you don't have parts kicking around the workshop, no problem. This company can help you out. And, if you're like me, waiting around for that last piece of the project to arrive is excruciating. Not with this company. I ordered 6 of them, so I'd have a "spare", and shipping was faster than fast. The lamp is done, and looks like the idea I had in my head. I'll be looking at "garage sales" a lot closer now, and I will be back for more parts and probably a different style of bulb and antique wire, plug and more than likely a cooler looking bulb socket to make it look old. So, hopefully, I've inspired you to make something unique for your home, and with a little help from this company, you will have a one of a kind lamp for your home, too. I've bought from this company....you should too.
Awesome and everything went well from the ordering to the receiving :)
Loving the warm glow from these lights. Product is exactly as described and was shipped very fast. Extremely happy with these bulbs!
