About Vintage Lantern

The deck is lovely when the weather cools down in the evening, but there are no lights out there. You can sit out there in the dark, which is enjoyable sometimes, or you could get a vintage lantern. Not only does a vintage lantern add ambiance, but it enables you to read or play cards after dark without having an electrician do any work. For the authentic old-fashioned feel, go with a vintage oil lantern, especially one that is made out of punched tin. If you want something that looks authentic, but requires less attention, purchase a vintage battery lantern. Search eBay for vintage lanterns; the reliable sellers on this site offer convenient shipping options. Once you get your lantern, you are all set for a summer full of relaxing evenings on the deck, reading or just chatting with friends and family. And as an added benefit, you are all ready for the next hurricane or power outage.
