"Facebook marketplace has also been great for cheaper local listings. I’d go as far as to say I’ve gotten more off of Facebook marketplace than letgo. Added bonus, you know what the seller looks like before meeting up. Happy Hunting! "

Potentially problematic lamp

In my quest to find a relatively inexpensive vintage Lava Lite, I came across an interesting lamp on eBay.
