As you know, Harbour Lights creates an original lighthouse sculpture each year that is only available through Authorized Dealers holding In-Store Events. The piece for 2003 is St. Clair, Michigan—a two-piece set that includes a likeness of the small channel light, as well.

Long time collectors Carol and Tom Poulos, ...

Lighthouse enthusiasts look to Bill, Nancy and Kim of Harbour Lights to bring encouragement and excitement as each year, they make personal appearances in retail stores and public venues across the nation. At each Bill or Nancy In-Store Event a drawing is held for a rare and valuable Gold Plated St. Clair Lighthouse. Now, each of the winners from this year’s drawings will have the opportunity to win a one of a kind, diamond studded Gold Plated St. Clair replica.

This exclusive sculpture has 10 matching diamonds set strategically in each of the windows of the beacon tower. The result is a realistic sparkle that is reminiscent of the cut glass prisms in a Fresnel Lens. Because this is a piece that will never be reproduced in this form, its retail value is not stated. However, based on secondary market sales of the gold-plated event pieces, estimates range from $1,000 to over $5,000.

The drawing will be held at the end of November 2003, after the last in-store event, so you still have many opportunities to attend and possibly win a gold-plated lighthouse, thus becoming eligible for the drawing for the diamond version! In fact, Bill will appear at Lighthouse Depot on September 6th, 2003. Be sure to meet him there, or find a complete schedule of events on the Harbour Lights website at www.HarbourLights.com or by calling 800-365-1219.
