So I visited two spencers near me just to see what they had and both stores are almost out of stock. I am not sure if this has to do with schylling buy them but I visit these stores regularly while we are out shopping and they have less less and less.One store only has 2 52oz lamps left and not to much on 17". The other not much more.I wonder what's going on?Thoughts?Continue
Hello everyoneYesterday I was browsing my local vintage emporium store when I found a boxed Crestworth Astro Mini for £20. I instantly picked it up and inspected it and found it to not have the original bottle but a Mathmos Glitterbaby bottle (Which I am now using in my Mathmos Neo). I also found inside the box a late Crestworth brochure / poster which I hope to get framed at some point. As I was walking around with the box I realized something wasn't quite as as expected so I inspected further…Continue
I've slowed down in buying lamps over the years, but I still get tempted when I see Lava Lite put out new lamps. And nearly all of the time, I'm disappointed. I wanted to consolidate my experiences/posts into one thread for those who are looking to purchase "new"er lava lamps, specifically ones from 2003 and after. Most of us know that 2003 is when Lava Lite shifted production of their lamps to China. Since that time, there's been an obvious decline in quality, though many new lava lamp fans…Continue
I would like to ask your expert help in identifying the model/year of my lava lamp. Sadly, it fell off a window ledge in a windstorm...the cap broke in 5 or 6 pieces and the yellow liquid came out. I've posted several photos in my album. I think it might be a Century, but some of its characteristics don't match the Century description. Also, would you recommend trying to repair it (if possible) or just selling for parts? Thank you!Continue

To start off, sorry for my ignorance. I'm new at this stuff.So I received my Coachlite a few weeks ago. When I got it the lava needed some help. It didn't do much more than make the "ice sickle" effect. (I'm sure you guys have another name for that.) So I decided to revitalize the lava the old school way with Epson salt and dawn soap. It worked great. But once I had changed the liquid I was able to see how much scum build up was on the inside of the globe. So I decided to do it again a few days…Continue
Hi everyone,After six long years of searching and waiting, I FINALLY scored the Holy Grail of lava lamps - a purple liquid/red wax Colossus in perfect shape from a collector in the Twin Cities, complete with the glass table ring and functioning dimmer. It looks soooo beautiful all set up in my bedroom and when it is turned on, the lava flow is truly hypnotizing!That said, I would love it if anyone out there knows if Colossus (or their earlier Humungo siblings) lamps were ever advertised by Lava…Continue
I learned a very shitty and valuable lesson today for the summer.I rec'd my red glitter wizard today which i got for a great offer price on ebay.I went to clean the bottle and it was pretty warm but not hot.The bottle slipped out of my hands I caught it again and it slipped again only inches from my kitchen floor. The bottle broke up and all the contents spilled all over the kitchen floor.The cleanup was pretty nasty and unpleasant with glitter and stinky fluid all over the place.Moral of the…Continue
