An Amazing Trip

August 3rd, 2010 by Randy Parker

My son & I visited the A Christmas Story House last week on our way back to our home in upstate New York.  After having the time of our lives at the house with enthusiastic and genuinely happy staff (Ian Petrella was a great guy to speak with), we went to the gift shop and bought the 50 inch “leg lamp” (amoung other things).  It now holds a place of honor in our home’s great room (photo attached) and draws smiles from every person on the sidewalk who walks by.  I have heard several nieghbors scream out, “It’s a major award!”

The house, the musuem, your staff, and that wonderful leg lamp will always leave our family with a smile.

Warmest regards,

The Kline Family

A Christmas Story Birthday

July 27th, 2010 by Ralphie

Here are a few pics from my 30th birthday party my wife had for me. In these pictures is a leg lamp cake and the 50″ leg lamp with full size wooden crate she bought from your gift shop. It truly was a birthday I will never forget.

New Age Bumpus Hounds

February 1st, 2010 by Ralphie

Every year my dogs Angie and Atia (rescued pound puppies) reenact a scene from A Christmas Story, for our Christmas card. The first year, I ordered the full sized leg lamp from your web site, and we took their picture with it, displayed in our front bay window. Attached, also please find a copy of our 2009 card. I will be ordering a few props from your site shortly, to prepare for 2010! (Hint: Schwartz and Randy hats!)

Love, the Miceli family of New Jersey

MY CHRISTMAS STORY OF 2009

January 18th, 2010 by Ralphie

In November, a custom made table was made to hold all my Christmas Story ornaments and gifts.
My family said “I needed it”.
Note that the tree topper is the Leg Lamp Nightlight.
Also, Leg Lamp cookies from last years’ Cleveland Convention, for ornaments.
Unknown to me, the real surprise was yet to come at our family gathering on Christmas evening!
I was given a telegram before opening gifts, that my Major Award was to be delivered soon.
The door bell rang, and guess what was being delivered to the Davis’s?
A friend, Cliff,  with a cigar and cart like in the movie, did a great job
acting out the part and delivering the FAMOUS LEG LAMP, with “FRAGILE” on the box.
A real surprise! (My husband was in on it, too!)
For the  very first time living here for 42 years, the curtains and blinds were pulled open to show
my “Major Award” Christmas gift.
And yes, the neighbors gathered just like the movie…….awing and looking!
Now, we sit in our living room, with the warm glow of Electric Sex gleaming through our front window!

Does this guy look familiar?

December 8th, 2009 by Ralphie

I convinced my son to dress as Ralphie for Halloween 2009. Honestly he wasn’t really happy about it, but somehow I managed to get him to do it. This was the only picture he’d let me take. He’s just lucky I didn’t put him in the bunny costume. Enjoy!
