    Has Anyone Ordered A Grande And Had It Delivered To Store??

    Started by Carol Morrow in Problems & Questions 52 minutes ago. 0 Replies

    Was wondering this.  I was THINKING, just THINKING, lol.....that if I were to order a Grande from Walmart.....they have free ship to store pickup, so the lamp ends up costing 93 and some chump change.  Couldn't one examine said lamp at store and if cloudy, get a refund right then and there?  Or say I take it home and it clouds up.  I would probably keep it and kit it, but I was just wondering if anyone has done this.  At least it would be free shipping and if one weren't satisfied, you wouldn't…Continue

    Pearl Shimmer Food Coloring??? Hummmm......

    Started by Carol Morrow in Collecting. Last reply by Carol Morrow 21 hours ago. 6 Replies

    So, I used the food safe water based airbrush gun food coloring to color my blue kit fluid and I have to say the blue is magnificent!!!  Downside is it's 4.99 for a small bottle and it literally takes 1 drop.  It's so highly concentrated, but the color saturates almost immediately!!!  I had to use about 8 drops of the McCormick yellow to color my 20 oz lamp.  See the difference??  Anyway, they have a Pearl Shimmer food coloring similar to this one on Amazon.  I was wondering what that would…Continue

    I was contacted by a great friend today, who shared the distressing news that some "scumbag yuppies" had bought his building and he was being kicked out of his longtime apartment (Chicago).  As a result, he will need to unload a significant number of lamps, parts, etc.  Exact amount of goodies TBD, but should have a better idea this weekend.I have volunteered my basement as a storage option, so I sense the majority of the goods will be in possession.  I told him that me and my Tacoma are at his…Continue

    I've had a remarkable year where Lava Lamps are concerned.  I had been looking for an Imperial for a good while and thinking I might never find one.   Sure, I knew where there are five or so, but they are in the hands of people who love them.  I…
