Thanks!! I was not aware that they are still around. What brands? Is it 'new' stock, or someone with 'surplus'?

Most of the rooms in the house I grew up in only had 1 'real' receptacle.
The rest of the outlets were those little 3-sided surface outlets on 2-wire zip cord.

Once you put a few coats of paint on the baseboard it's not even obvious that there's a wire there.
