Didn’t win any “major awards” this holiday? Nothing fra-gee-lay got delivered from Italy? Too bad. But you can still get yourself a leg lamp like the one The Old Man won in A Christmas Story. Fishnets and all.
About ten years ago a Florida yacht broker made a copy of the infamous lamp for his fiance as a joke. More than a decade later, he’s selling them as a business. They run about $150 for the basic model, $439 if you want the Signature Series Special Edition, signed by the actors who played Ralphie, Randy, Flick, Schwartz and Scut Farcus. And you can have it delivered in a wooden shipping crate filled with straw. Western Union telegram announcing its arrival not included. Clear a spot in the living room window.
