Clap On -- Clap Off

I don't understand.  For years, at Christmas time, one commercial dominated our television viewing.  It was an old lady in bed, and she would clap twice and her bedside lamp would go off.  The announcer would tout the Clap On and Clap Off light switch. 

It was ubiquitous. Over and over and over we heard how wonderful Clap On and Clap Off switches were.

But NOW THAT I WANT ONE, where the bleep are they?  Not at Sav-Mart, not at Rite-Aid, not at Target, not at OSH.

Ah, I still have good old Wal-Mart to try, or Best Buy, but they are a two day scoot from here. Stay tuned

I don't know anywhere to get them Chuck but I did go to Google and saw a couple of places online. We got one once but it didn't work right so we took it back. That was several years ago and I don't remember where we got it. Helen

Buy several of them and everything will come on and go off with just one clap!

Order online.

I found another site that said ACE Hardware sells them.  You could call Parker's here and ask.

I'm getting one, too. I'm going to hook it up to one of those "APPLAUSE PLEASE" signs from television studios.

That should drive people crazy.

OMG, Chuck, I saw a "Clapper" at a thrift store in my town yesterday!!  Was it the same one??  Mabye!  LOL  I hated that commercial.  That lady looked so mean.  LOL  I wonder how many clappers they sell now?  Or do they even sell any at all?  I am curious.. LOL  Good luck!  Hugs, Val xox
