Any idea how many lamps are in this collection? I don't suppose it would be possible for them to post pictures of the collection with some prices. It is an expensive trip for some of us when we have no idea whether the trip would be worth it. If I travel to the Hillsboro show, maybe the lamps I would be interested in would not have seen sent to the show. Specifics would be helpful.

I just phoned and understand the constraints they are under. She tells me she is taking the best to the Hillsborough Show, so that is probably the place to go.

Kathy has informed me that the response to this announcement has been great. She has already scheduled several appointments. In addition, she has informed me that she has just packed an additional 50 lamps to take to the show in Hillsborgh and will have with her photos of the remaining lamps in Seattle for review.

Following is a note from one of our members who traveled to Seattle to see the collection.

Jim,

Thank you for posting the announcement about the fairy lamp sale in Seattle.

I called and made an appointment yesterday with Kathy Bailey to see the fairy lamp collection. Since I live in Portland, Oregon and it is only 170 miles away, I drove up. Kathy and I spent a delightful afternoon together; she even took me to lunch.

What a treat to see so many Victorian fairy lamps in one house. There is a large variety of lamps to choose from. I personally selected a pyramid size citron Nailsea lamp, and a Cleveland pattern lamp (there are many, many lamps to select from).

I recommend anyone interested in Victorian fairy lamps to contact Kathy. She is wonderful person to work with, and a pleasure to do business with!!!

I am grateful for this opportunity, and for the effort and time you put into making this available to all club members.


If only Colorado was a few hundred miles closer. Sad
