Oozing Goo - The Lava Lamp Syndicate

I'm guessing a lot of you folks are checking the thrift stores, flea markets, yard sales etc. for lava lamps.  sometimes I get lucky.  Tell me about your favorite finds.

in the last week or so I've been looking for anything wild.  I found an infinity mirror light in a hard to reach/see area of a good thrift store in amish country.  The bulbs were burned out, and I found some 7v mini bulbs today.  It looks great, maybe from the 60s-80s.

and yesterday I met someone from the letgo app. and picked up a lava (the left one) for 15 delivered.  Oh Yeah and that mirror light was only $2.50 and the bulbs were two bucks.

Sweet deals.  

You're on the right track with your lava hunting, don't forget craigslist and facebook marketplace.  Most of my lamps have been second hand including 3 Grande's, one of which was only 20 dollars.

Nice scores!

I've been looking for one of the Infinity Mirrors for ages, but they may not have come over to the UK 

Still, there are consolations over here... Crestworth kit easier to find... though good finds are getting scarcer...

(btw - nice avatar, too)

thanks. the mushroom light was also of course a garage sale score. I snagged it for under a buck. I think it's called cluster plastic?

Friend of mine picked up a Crestworth Rocket (1993) at a car boot sale recently for £5. They are still out there somewhere. I on the other hand have drawn a complete blank over here in Ontario, Canada. Old lavas are so scarse here. Even new ones are very limited stock.

I'm usually asking if they have any lavas.  either garage sales, and if I see someone stocking shelves at goodwill.  I asked one lady and she said no. but next thing I know she has a globeless light. paid two or three bucks for the base and top.

My best find was an Elegant Flock Planter. A very rare lamp. I picked it up at an antique mall In Edmonton for $25.

I found three LL Midnight bases, three 32oz American made bottles and the base to a Fantasia glitter lamp all for $20 Canadian. Antique/flea market.  Pretty good deal I think.

I used to use letgo all the time and found great stuff, but lately and for quite some time, the pickings have been slim.

My $20 (Canadian) deal not quite as good as originally hoped for. Cost me another $120 to ship (and I mean by Ship!) the lot back to the UK.
