This guy is selling this on Craigslist for $60 (ya ok). The cap is cracked and repaired with duct tape from "sitting in the sun" because "plastic gets brittle from the UV rays" (no way... I never…Continue

I recently found an old Wizard at Goodwill for $5.00. (Yay!) in general it is in pretty decent shape, and aside from running too hot where the glitter stops cycling (which I will put a lower watt…Continue

"Stay away from that Century lamp! I collect them and that is one wasted lamp at ANY price. You can do much better on ebay. As the saying goes, "you only get what you pay for". Buying on Craigslist is a gamble anyway plus the lamp is…"

"This thing has been listed for about 42 days. It is listed in with a bunch of "man cave" crap. I figured at this point he would just be happy to be rid of it but apparently not. I thought it was outrageous but I wanted the opinions of the…"

"$75 for both. The ceramic appears to be missing the decorative cap and I am pretty sure the liquid used to be blue not clear and it defiantly appears to have leaked. He insists the Century runs "it is bigger than most so it takes at least an…"

"That is a tough one.  You can sometimes find a Century in better condition on ebay for about the price he wants for his, mind you there is shipping though.  I dunno, I would probably stay away from it if it was me. Is he selling both the…"

This guy is selling this on Craigslist for $60 (ya ok). The cap is cracked and repaired with duct tape from "sitting in the sun" because "plastic gets brittle from the UV rays" (no way... I never knew?!) From what I can tell the sun also ruined the wax hence why it appears to just be hanging out so all I'd be essentially buying it for would be the base and globe for a total rebuild. I know the caps are tricky to find.Have not gone digging through the archives just yet to check out if this is…See More

Finally, a decent 20oz.

"Of the many 20 oz Lavas I have found to be guinea pigs I have had ONE that ran perfect from the start (two if I add the northern light colored glitter I found). It does get a bit warm after a long time but it's white wax/pink fluid makes the…"

One very burnt coil.

"I am assuming the original owners let it run overheated most of it's life. The brown algae-like coating on the inside of the globe was odd too. A lot of the red leached into the water so it was a dark honey color. It was a mess but I think I…"

Profile Information

Something Interesting About Me:
I got my first lamp when I was about 11. I never thought much of it besides just being neat. I had a couple other ones I picked up in my 20's just as decor. One day I dug out my first one and realized it was, well, shot! I didn't want to just throw it away so I started looking online to see if I could fix it. Now I'm hooked! :)
Where I Live:
Minnesota
My First Lava Lamp was:
Clear/Green Lava Lite with a black base from the 90's. I got it in 4th grade from my dad for learning multiplication. I had to recondition it but I still have it!
My Collection Includes this many Lava Lamps:
10?
My Favorite Lava Lamp is:
Imperials. Someday I will have one.
Relationship Status:
In a Relationship
