2022 OTLS Lighter Convention

Did you know that there were lighter conventions?

If you’re into vintage lighters, then this is the one you should know about. The venerable lighter collecting club; On The Lighter Side (usually referred to as “OTLS”) is holding their 2022 convention at the Golden Nugget Hotel & Casino on June 2nd through June 5th, in Las Vegas, Nevada. The yearly convention was cancelled for the past three years due to COVID fears and restrictions, but 2022 is a go for lighter collectors.

What can I expect to see there?

A niche collecting club like this is not going to generate a 20,000+ foot traffic experience. Rather, a much more intimate room of twenty to thirty tables of various vintage lighters for sale or trade. One might also expect discussions and displays of lighters and special collections and a Saturday evening auction.

They have reserved a limited number of spots which includes an exhibit table for non-members so they can experience a two day weekend of buying, selling, trading and displaying lighters.  Best of all, there will be no registration costs and this event includes a Thursday hospitality gathering and a Saturday banquet for one person.  Normal registration cost would be $150.  

If you are interested in attending or in becoming a club member, more information can be found on the OTLS website.

  1. I cannot express my gratitude enough to ARS lighter service on the absolutely fantastic restoration on my mother and father’s silver slimline dunhill lighters. They both function like brand new lighters. I also appreciate the respect given to the original patina with both parents having deceased, it means a lot sentimentally. Their repair service is worth every cent! Very nicely packaged and returned within two weeks. It really doesn’t get any better than this and I am a very satisfied repeat customer. I personally don’t believe in throwing good money at bad. I highly recommend their services over cheaper “Joe Blo” at his kitchen table options out there that simply don’t address things correctly and end up leaking again within a month. Don’t waste your $100!
