Locating antique light bulbs for sale

Hi every one it's been a while since I visited on this site.
 It's that time of the year when there is to much to do. I was suprised at how many replies there was about collecting.
 I had most of mine on photo point and was in the process of re aranging them.
 Trouble is now you can only have 10 pictures on photo point for free.
 I think that is a exce
lent idea of displaying on this site. I always enjoyed looking at Tim's collection and learned a lot from them.
 Perhaps we can have trades with each other on our duplicates.
  There are lots of people who have never seen any old or limited edition bulbs.

They charge for more than 10 pictures and still bombard your pictures with their advertisement? I think I'm in the wrong business!

Photopoint isn't that bad.  If you pay for the "Premium" Service, you get a 500 photo allotment.

Welcome to the world of "suck-in and then charge."  So many websites offer their wares for free for a while, then... just when you have gotten use to them... they charge.  Everyone has their hand in the till... Ebay fees, Pay Service Fees, Auction Hosting Fees, Picture Hosting Fees... by the time you get done paying all the fees, you haven't made any money!  I went back to the old way and am happy about it.

Photopoint - this was one service I did pay for.  With Bulb Albums, I can share what little I have with the collecting-community.  Add to that, I get one set of prints for free.  Add to that, I can do my auctions with out a "listing fee" (like Auction Watch) and add to that a percentage of the take.  Add to that, friends and family all over creation who can access family photos without it really costing a whole lot of money.

I'd offer the link to my humble assortment of bulbs, but the album titles mention the word "Ebay," and Lord knows, I don't want to create any more trouble than I already have!
