As a teenager my mother would not allow me have any lava lamps. So as an older adult I decided there is no reason why I can't buy myself things I wanted when I was younger. I bought a couple of new lava lamps and then started ebaying. I was so pleased with my small collection, they "WERE" my pride and joy, until I decided to move to another state. I packed all the boxes (yes I had all the original boxes for each lamp) into bigger boxes. They made it just fine to the new state, but while I was gone to retrieve more of my things, someone broke into my new house, the house was ram sacked every box dumped on the floor and alot of things missing. All of my lava lamps were gone. So while searching the internet I found Oozing Goo, which made it worse and I longed for my lamps. So I starting browsing on ebay again, but was very discouraged over the prices the older lamps were going for. This made me even more discouraged and the ebay bug struck once again. I thought no matter what I have to pay I am buying just one lamp, well that quickly turned into 6 lamps, so now my pain is eased just alittle.
