    Fantasia Glitter Lamps

    I picked up 2 of these lamps today and both are working and the glitter seems like it is still in really good shape. I am not "big" on the glitter lamps but my wife is... so I do not plan on letting her see these or she will make me add it to MY collection.Regardless, any idea what they might be worth?Continue

    Hi All -Have not been on this site in many years but moved recently just next door and forgot I have many Colossus put away in a dry climate. I am giving first crack at you guys to purchase as I know they are rare and desired by many. I have at least 4 or 5. Some have never even been opened. Extra bulbs and bases etc.Here is the catch I ... I am older and can not lift them much so buyer would have to pick them up or arrange packing / shipping. Will not be responsible once they leave my house of…Continue

    On-going list of quality issues with Lava Lite lamps (post-2003 lamps)

    Started by Erin in Problems & Questions. Last reply by Tim on Monday. 19 Replies

    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

    Question about my goo kit

    Started by ash-hole! in Collecting. Last reply by ash-hole! Aug 8. 5 Replies

    I've currently added the goo to two lamps. In the first lamp the goo came out a killer white and the second lamp the goo came out crystal clear which I also loved. So I was holding off on the dye step.When I turned them on today the crystal clear one is no longer clear and it's pretty bubbly. I did everything the same. I know some people say to boil it and some say to leave it on 10 hours and turn it off for 10 repeat... But is this really going to fix itself?Continue
