Well, like you said before, you can always put your highest bid on that cheetah lamp and leave it at that. Right now I think the cheetah is at $21 bucks w/$9 S/H. Cloudy or not, I don't think it's too high.
Craigslist is nice if you are close enough or willing to drive to get to what you're looking for. There's never lava lamps near me and they are always hundreds of miles away!
I don't believe that globe is what originally comes with that base, is it? The globe is what made me not bid on it, plus there were others I wanted at the time.
I just type in Lava and look at them all till i see what I like
I type in Lava Lamps , use Sort by Time Newly Listed :)
This is almost what they retailed for. That's actually not such a bad price.
I have these lamps in box, but can't see selling them for less then I paid.
I think people forget what these lamps retailed for, then forget these are american made globes.
Not every lamp is going to be $10.00.
Cheetah lamp went for $51.00 + $10.00 to ship. That's bidding for you. I purchased the Snake and Tortoise lamps for $10.00 a piece in the original boxes and picked up local off Craiglist. I guess I've gotten a little spoiled on Craigslist, but at least they give a price and you don't have to watch eBay the last hour to see if someone is going to stick it to you in the last seconds and run the price up way more than it should be. Sorry guys just venting, hate to loose a lamp to someone that got more money to spend, I apologize.
Well, I have a Zebra base..but no globe or cap. Got it from an antique store..can always use an extra base.. ;p
