Introduction To My Show Case
Welcome to my little space on the web... Flame & Shine Collectibles. I'm a collector of vintage flashlights, vintage battery operated lanterns and old cigarette lighters. I'll be showing these collections in different galleries for your viewing pleasure. I'm more of a collector of vintage flashlights with a small collection of battery operated lanterns. Hope you enjoy.
I started collecting vintage flashlights a few years ago and I have over 100 old flashlights to my credit. I'm only showing some of my better and most interesting vintage flashlights. Some of the flashlights I got when I first started collecting are nothing special, just got me started so I will not be showing them. Chances are we all have'em. My two oldest dates back to 1915 and I have a few others in the teens.
Maybe you'll see one you've never seen before in the galleries? I hope to keep adding to my collection as I'll be going to yards sales and estate sales in search of that one great find. When all else fails, there's always eBay. The Hunt Continues....
My next collection will show some of my old battery operated lanterns, emergency lanterns with flashers and a couple of railroad lanterns. Some use a 6 volt battery and others use either D or C cell batteries. One thing for sure, they take up a lot of space.
Old Cigarette Lighters
I used to collect Old Cigarette Lighters way before I started collecting vintage flashlights. You can view some my collection which I started collecting back in the early 70's and continued in the 80's and 90's as an active collector. I know I have hundreds of old lighters and just don't remember the count but I'm thinking somewhere between 600-800, could be more as I still have most of my lighters packed away in storage at a friends place. I'll be showing my old lighters in four categories such as old pocket lighters, table top lighters and a few old cigarette case lighters.
