Long time since I’ve been around here... I’ve been the proud owner of a ‘92 pink/pink Lava Lite for just about two years now, and I thought it would be fun to put it out for a 1970s themed party I’m…Continue

In my quest to find a relatively inexpensive vintage Lava Lite, I came across an interesting lamp on eBay. I think it's a 70s Century, but it looks like all the wax is floating in one big ball at the…Continue

Hello all, I'm new here, and new to lava lamps. I've never owned one, but out of the blue I had the idea to buy one for my dorm room. It didn't take long to find out that the new Lava Lites made in…Continue
