Gem Lite Glitter Mystique Model 750. I was able to talk the seller down two bucks. Yay me!

Looks even better out of the box than in it. Sadly, the photo doesn't capture the rainbow of colors that reflects off the glitter. Take a few grams of magic mushrooms and use your imagination.
LOL - no to the beer Brad. I am typically traveling in the early morning hours to get there soon after the gates open. Bloody Marys would be more appropriate.
do you drink beer while you shop, jim?
Voxul - I have no shame at flea markets. Haggling is part of the fun of going to flea markets as it would be boring if the effort was just to acquire "more stuff". The real fun is in interacting with the often bizarro sellers. If the seller would have told me $1 for the Gem Lite, you bet your ass I would try to get it for 75 cents.
That is a wicked score Jim and the damage totals on the two lamps makes me want to pass out LOVE that you talked them DOWN!!
LOL Loren! Pretty much. It doesn't take much for us humans, but there is definitely a major burst of elation when you spy something like this. There just seems to be something about me, flea markets and vintage glitters - some of my most favorite glitters have come via that route. The Florence Arts glitter was the only one I spotted several dealers away. The Fantasia glitter was under the sellers table when I found that one (last dealer of the day to boot). And my Spidey senses look for tell-tale boxes, but I wasn't looking for a Gem Lite box per se, but rather a 90's Lava Lite box. And then you are still doubting your eyes so have to hoist the box - too heavy to be just an empty box. Then the drool sets in...
If I ever saw anything like that at a thrift store or flea market...I would probably just die right there.
When it comes to lava and glitters, I might as well live in Cambodia. :-/
Would have been a bargain at 10X what I paid. Been a stellar season thus far. Not so much on quantity, but on quality. Two flea markets attended, one Fantasia glitter lamp and one GemLite Mystique glitter lamp added to the collection. Damage to my bottom line - $23 total.
