The house is in a section of Cleveland called Tremont, and thousands of visitors come to tour it every year.

There were originally two Leg Lamps made for the filming of the movie A Christmas Story, but both lamps were broken during the filming. So no original Leg Lamps are still available even for the most avid collector.
A Christmas Story Light Up Neckties
My favorite of the Leg Lamp collectibles are the light up neckties. The picture to the right does not do the tie justice, you really need to click on the link to see the clear picture of the necktie. But the Leg Lamp on the necktie does light up, and it is hilarious in person, a great gift for any A Christmas Story aficionado to wear on Christmas Eve or Christmas Day.
