Missing lanterns in the collecton

#1

Post by WYSIWYG »

Timm's thread about his missing Tilley reminded me I have a few missing items too, as I'm sure many of us do.
I posted in his thread I was hunting for a pair of small yellow clamshell cases one of which is holding a 202. So I spent the afternoon going through the garage looking for them, I know they are here somewhere, and I'm pretty sure they are in this area
After much poking about, peeking around, and moving things about, I'm rewarded by fulfilling my quest! They were hiding behind the Kerosene can !

Rats where is the other 202 I have 3 and I know where 2 of them are,

It's gona be a long night..............

Was it a short vent 202? I thought tall vent units didn’t fit in those

very nice lanterns. I thought you meant missing from the collection not missing in amongst your collection. LOL

I'm glad to have been the inspiration for the hunt!

I must need to go on a buying binge since I know where all of my GPAs are at, however, that 6-cup stainless steel percolator has been missing since August! I've looked "everywhere" three times. How do you lose one of those?? Grrrr...

I'm currently looking for a globe that belongs on a very rare Aladdin inverted lantern. I know it's here some where in a box. I didn't want to leave it on it's lantern for fear of it getting broke.

Not sure I’ve ever lost any GPAs but I’ve found a few I forgot about.
