Went to the thrift store this morning and found what I thought was a bag with just tent poles in it. Sweet, I've got a couple tents with broken or missing poles. That's worth a buck!

Looked inside and saw the stove stand...score! Now I have a stove stand AND some extra tent poles.

Got to work, looked inside, and discovered what I had. The paper was torn so I reprinted it. Whatd'ya think? Anyone ever see one before??

Well that’s a nice surprise. You gotta love when you buy something and it something better than you thought

I have a friend who does a lot of camping that has one of those and uses it all the time.

I think this one will get a lot of use.

A local Walmart had ones like those on clearance several years ago for $1, down from $10, so I bought several.  I find them to be extremely unstable if accidentally bumped by a person or pet, but admittedly, don't generally use the 'spikes' (really just big nails to stake it down).  I suggest that you don't hang a prized lantern on it.

Very cool. Do you have a picture of the packaging?

Sorry Tom, no packaging at least where I'm currently located.  I checked the ones I had here, but didn't save the packaging, and the ones in my RV would have gotten flooded after a hurricane several years ago, so I wouldn't have saved the packaging. 

The only difference I can potentially see is that the hook in the triangular piece at the top is a separate drop in piece on mine whereas yours looks to be integrated.

I can vaguely remember the packaging and am thinking mine were branded Century or Coghlans. 

This was probably around '06 and I just happened to be there at the right time in the fall when they put a lot of camping stuff on serious clearance.  I mean really serious.  🙂  Northstar propane lanterns were $5, the Century propane bottle top lanterns were $2.

A lantern killer !!!! 

I have one of those,. Seems like everytime I hang a lantern from that thing I end up buying a new globe for the lantern !

I bought mine over 20 years before the turn of the century. And killed a lot of glass since then,.  .now it's in the scrap pile

I have one also. If it is sitting flat and sturdie on the ground, it does the intended purpose as designed. Had mine for 20+ seasons. Never had a problem with glass or mantles.

The stand is a firefly stand. I have had mine for 30+ yrs. I use it for the peak series lanterns. Never had a problem with it, but I always use the stakes incase of wind or kids or small animals.

I've used this lantern stand before, belonged to a friend of mine. As mentioned above, unstable at best.

Keep your eyes out for old surveyor's tripods. Add a shelf to the top and you have a dandy, very stable lantern stand!

I also have a newer, all-metal Davis-White tripod.

The newer ones are pretty common and not too spendy as the laser level and total station have taken over the business.

Nice two-fer.  I would donate the lantern stand back to the thrift store and keep the stove stand.
