Thanks for the comment on my Wizard lamp. It makes a great addition to the bedroom and me and my wife love the blue glow it provides. Those lamps are a bit more common than some of the others I have seen on eBay. Depending on the color combo you might be able to get one for a fair price.
In regard to shipping lamps to Canada. I am unfortunately swamped with eBay listings and trying to find other meaningful work right now. I was laid off in January and trying to keep my financial head above water is a full time job in itself. Maybe after I get back to regular work I can help out with getting a lamp or two sent your way. Are you near a border state in the US? You might hunt down some Goo members in that state and simply drive across to pick it up. That would obviously save a lot of money in shipping. See ya soon buddy.
Thanks for the invite. Can't have too many friends in this world. In regard to your Lava World dilemma, it's nearly impossible to find a contemporary lamp from them that 1. works and/or 2. isn't cloudy. I've honestly given up on them. Don't worry. Nature abhors a vacuum. They will be out of business soon and honest people like me and you that have a real desire for a beautiful lamp will step in the fray and offer a quality product. Start learning how to make them. I promise you I'm hot and heavy on that trail myself. Meanwhile, check out eBay for some classic lamps. They are already a little pricey and when the bottom falls out of Lava World the prices will go through the roof. Start colecting now if you have a few bucks to spare. I have a list of questions I ask of members when shopping that almost always guarantees a smile when I get the package in the mail. I'll email them to you if you like . Just let me know you wish to see them and give me an email to work with. See ya!
