So, you want to know more about me and this web site? You already know I collect vintage flashlights, old lanterns and old cigarette lighters. Read on to find a little bit more.

When did I know I was a Flashaholic? The day I came back from the post office with 3 new flashilghts I bought/won off eBay, 2 new LED flashlights and 1 vintage flashlight. I even had 2 more vintage flashlights coming in the mail and that was before I found 4 oldies at an estate sale over the weekend. The following Monday the other 2 flashlights came in. then I won a package deal of 5 vintage flashlights a couple days later. The Flashlight binge lasted 6 days and 15 flashlights later. Vintage Flashlights 12- LED's 3. I was hooked. My name is David and I'm a flashaholic. I now have over 100 old flashlights in my collection and 15 LED flashlights. Kinda scary huh?

I also do a little web site design. After I started collecting flashlights I decided to make a web site for both collections to give me more ideas on web design and to stay in practice. I have two other sites I take care of and had a softball site for a few years back in my playing days. I played softball for over 25 years and retired in 2004. I also played a lot of horseshoes and still do if I can find a game.

This web site is coming to you live from a small town in the foot hills of the Sierra Mountains about an hour away from Yosemite National Park in Central California. I work and live on 15 arces at the 3,000 foot level. It gets dark up here and that's why I wanted the LED flashlights so I could see what was looking at me at 100 yards away. Once I bought one I had to buy more, options are a good thing. I drive a truck and have 8 cats.

So there you go, a little bit about me and this web site. If after viewing this web site and you see a lighter or flashlight that you're interested in, and serious about. You can send me an email and we can talk about it. Last be not least, I'm NOT an English Major and if not for spell check, I might have a lot of mistakes on here. So please excuse my grammar. I am no expert on flashlights, lanterns or lighters, but I'm learning.

Thanks for wanting to know about us. David & Dave
