    What do double Florence Art glitters go for these days?

    Started by Jonas Clark-Elliott in Collecting. Last reply by Modulo '70 10 hours ago. 3 Replies

    I just got back from Portland, OR. I wasn't lamp shopping, but on the way home I hit a vintage shop in Vancouver, and scored a large-globe double Florence Art (no center column, dark blue liquid) for $185-- they'd had it priced at $225. I'm trying to decide whether to keep it, try to sell it, or try to trade it. I really do like it, but what I do with it depends on what's out there.Continue

    Royale lava lamp

    Started by Zachary in Collecting. Last reply by Critter on Wednesday. 2 Replies

    So has anyone purchased or seen the 80 ounce royale lamp that lava lite released a couple months ago? I wanted to see a real picture of one. I tried looking it up but found that they have removed it from their website, and also the video on their YouTube chanel, and removed it from their size chart as well.? I know I wasn't imagining it!? So strange!Continue
