Jim Sapp - An Introduction

Post by Admin on Wed Jan 23, 2008 8:06 am

Most of you know me as the editor/publisher of the Fairy Lamp Club Newsletter....and some have met Patsy and me at a Fairy Lamp Club meeting. Few, however, really know me.

Patsy and I reside in Pine, Colorado. We moved here a few years ago and built a log home in the mountains southwest of Denver. This was quite a change for us since we were both born and raised in the suburbs of Washington D.C. We are both retired, I from the Federal Government and Patsy from professional Calligraphy. We have two children and four grandchildren and they all live close by here in Colorado.

My first exposure to fairy lamps was over 40 years ago. Long before Patsy and I were married I would visit her parent's home. There, on display in a corner cupboard was a collection of fairy lamps that belong to her grandparents. I was hooked. We bought our first fairy lamp in 1971, a blue diamond point pyramid for $15. I still have it and wouldn't consider parting with it.

Our collection grew in spurts with a long hiatus when the kids were in college, but that was about to change in 1996. That was the year Bob and Pat Ruf published their book "Fairy Lamps - Elegance in Candle Lighting." It was also the same year that the Fairy Lamp Club was born and the first newsletter was published. With that, our collection and, more importantly, our knowledge grew by leaps and bounds.

The Fairy Lamp Club provided a means to meet fellow fairy lamp collectors. As you know, collecting fairy lamps is a lonely endeavor. Few understand what they are and many have little appreciation for them. But, we are working on that.

Well, that is enough for now. Call, write, or visit when you can. I love to share our collection and talk about fairy lamps.

Jim.

We're back after some internet connection problems. We think this is a great idea - once we figure it out. We read your intro and would like to add ours but strange things seem to happen when we try something new on the computer. For example, when tabbing down thru Username, Subject, etc, this box that I am typing in now appears and disappears - may have solved the problem by clicking off the page when that happens. We'll see. Anyway we'll keep trying as time and energy permits. Still waiting on delivery of Burmese epergne from England. Should arrive soon unless held up in shipping.

One problem may be that you are a guest. Try registering and see it that helps.

Also, when sending a reply, there is no need to fill in the subject line. Just leave it blank and it will fill it in the topic title.

When all else fails, trade in your Mac for a PC. Wink
