    Good day Guys


    I am looking for antique shops that sells antiqueish paraffin lamps in the Cape Town area.

    There's a well known member here in CT that restores & sells old lamps. I've seen his collection... if you are after lamps I can send you his contact details?

    Milnerton Market, or if you are out Kleinmond way, there is a an antique/junk shop in the Kaplan Industrial area in the last or second last road to the left as you drive down to the harbour - they had a bunch of paraffin lamps there when I was last in the shop, including a couple of old Coleman pressure lamps. There's also another junk/antique shop on the main road on the right as you come in from the Betty's Bay/Palmiet River side - it's just past the industrial area a bit before the OK, very visible.

    Parafin lamps that are table top based? Or hurricane type lamps? Both using a wick (type of braided cotton)?
    We got plenty of it at our beach house but it is not for sale.

    You might want to try the various antique shops at towns close by the sea. Such as Napier, Bredasdorp, Hermanus, Jacobsbay, Paternoster, to name a few. The more remote, the better your chances.

    Also, a quick search on internet gave me this:

    And there are plenty of them on Gumtree as well.
