Wow! Almost 10 years to the day since our last visit, this time to their premises on an industrial estate, unit 2 at Poole in sunny Dorset. We were lucky enough to go to the original Sterte Avenue West premises back in September 2009.
Once again I must say, the staff there were most accommodating and friendly. Took some pics of their amazing lava lamp line up including Astros, Telstar and Neos both table and wall varieties and enjoyed looking at the whole range including Space…Continue

Hello everyone, I hope I'm posting this to the right forum right now, just found out about this site, while on a mission.
If anyone see's this torchiere Lava lamp, and are willing to sell, I am more than willing to buy it off someone, for a reasonable price, I understand it's hard to find, but I've been looking everywhere for it.
My roommate had one when she was young and live with her abusive mother, about every week her mom would go through her room and trash and…
Have you noticed how often you see the Rolls Royce Glitter Graphic shown with a blank area where the Poverty Sucks line should be? (Left hand base in photo)
These five GGs show the variants I've seen...
Centre base is the Mark 1 version with POVERTY SUCKS printed on the screen in caps.
.saw this lamp on eBay, I was under the impression that the Carlisle only came in three colors with a gold base. ive seen wizard lamps with similar color schemes but never a Carlisle. Was thinking it was custom painted but there are 2 for sale on eBay for different sellers. I don't plan to buy it cause it's a little pricey was just curious.…Continue
The series was produced by Fantasia in 1980, featuring these images (plus three words-only executions by another designer).The elusive "Big Rig" is a computer-generated recreation from the only known black-and-white range photo...
The colour border (from the "Rolls Royce") has been added to differentiate it from the real thing…Continue
Hello people of the Goo variety, I my self like the lava lamps, but my true love is the fiber optic lamps..
Now i am hoping to get another motor for my color wheel on my Fantasia Love Bug.,
Does not have to be original motor, but the color wheel does need to fit into it of course.
Now if some one out there has an old love bug that the spray is cactus, or is no longer wanted, i will buy the motor from them ?
Or if some one knows of a good change over one, could…Continue
This is my first try at sun fading a lamp, I couldn't believe how fast the blue faded. just took about four hours in the sun. The bottle was a white/blue bottle from 1994 that I had found at my local thrift store. You can't tell from the photo, but the wax had started to turn an off yellowish color which turned orange near the base of the bottle when running. This picture was taken after I had transferred the contents to the Carlisle bottle. The wax is now red with yellow liquid, but due to…Continue
Seems to me like the popular gold bases with the holes should of been glittered. It didn't take long to paint, partlly because the Rust-Oleum spray nozzle stopped working after half the can maybe less. But it was good enough and looked great after a couple coats of clear coat.
II sealed the bottom of the lid with poster putty and masking…Continue
I found a couple lava lamps at a goodwill one is smaller with cloudy clear liquid and navy blue lava on a brushed silver base. the one I'm planning on fixing up is a midnight from 1999.
When checking the liquid out in the parking lot, it looked like it barely had a tint of the old mason jars that are blueish green. but it was practically clear. the lava is white. when I had the chance I switched my two globes and it now has the blue/purple globe…Continue
I'm new here and a newbie collector, but have always had some type of lava since childhood. Searched site and still had a question. Is it possible to still have a cloudy lava lamp arrive via shipping, that is brand new from a know company, or is this never the case and I was mislead?
I've tried melting the wax to get the bubbles out .
What am I doing wrong ?Continue
I have had it several years and don't even remember where I got it from. I fluid was evaporating and I thought maybe I could get it running again. After 3-4 attempts I decided the wax was any good and after the wax stuck to the sides and cleaning it there was…Continue
Its quite cloudy. I've been running it a bit and believe it or not it is getting better, Lets see how it looks in a few weeks..
Stumbled upon a cool new desk toy/lamp that some of you may find-a-fancy for! I may have to get behind this project!

Anyone know of a spare stand or…
