Handheld Slide Viewer
Only the price was "right." The manufacturer should at least include a diagram of how to insert batteries and explain the trick of inserting the metal tab which triggers the bulb to light. Cheap in price, but even cheaper in quality and packaging.
Still love your store for offering such hard-to-find items.

This is an excellent product
I couldn't find this anywhere but in your catalog. We had a collection of slides from college days and hadn't had a convenient way to review them. The viewer is a good size, seems to be well made, and gave us a lot of pleasure. Also it's much easier than trying to find a slide projector, carousel, etc, and get it all set up and then taken down and stored. I'm very pleased with it.

I was excited to find the slide viewer at the Vermont Country Store as I have several carousels of my dad's slides that I wanted to view. It arrived and I went to the store to buy new batteries for it. I put them in and the contacts worked lighting up the bulb. But when it was placed back in the unit it didn't work well. A couple of times it lit, then went dark. Frustrating. But I called customer service and got a very helpful employee who walked me through the exchange process. I'm hopeful this was just a defective unit and the next one will work.

Second Time purchase
This is the second time I got the same item. My Dad loves his so much, my Brother wanted one, too. Now my Brother loves his.

Thank goodness for this product.
Our wedding pictures were taken by our best man....he forgot he only had film for slides.....the slide viewer works very well....now where did I put those slides? Only have 3 more years to find them before our 50th anniversary!

Well constructed with a bright light
Hundred of slides sitting in plastic sleeves I have converted some to DVD, and this little viewer helps to identify which slide I want to add to that process.

You can still find stuff from the "older" days
I was just browsing your site when I came across the viewer gadget. It reminded me that I had once had such a viewer and somewhere along the line got rid of it. Well, I now needed one to review the slides I collected years ago, in order to now put them into my computer files. This will certainly be a great help when I do start this project. Thanks for carrying so many of these things that some of us let go of years ago, and find we need now.

Can see old memories again
My folks took a lot of photos and had them made into slides when I was a kid. When they couldn't live on their own anymore, we packed up as much as we could.
We didn't realize until afterward that we had brought the slides, but forgot the viewer. Then I saw it in your catalog. Thanks Vermont Country Store
