Come Join us in Wooster, Ohio April 25-28, 2019
This is your invitation to join us for the Grandaddy of all the regional collectable lighting meets. The Eastern Meet was founded by Tom Small in 1978. 2019 is our 41st year to buy, sell and trade lamps, make and greet new and old friends. The Eastern Lighting Collectors Meet is sponsored by The National Association of Aladdin Lamp Collectors. http://www.aladdincollectors.org
