Hi. l added you as a friend to try to send a msg : do you still have any Fantasia lights for sale? I live in Australia and my dad has been wanting one for years but I've never found any (i specifically joined this site when I saw you had Some for Sale). Could you please msg me with the prices you are looking for, what you still have for sale, and if you'll ship to Aus (hopefully express shipping- I'd like it to be a Christmas gift if possible), so I know whether I could afford them as I have no intention of wasting your time. I eagerly await your message. Kind regards.
Hi Kris Its me joust thanks for taking the time out to talk about the fantasia lamps.
What would you recommend that I spend on one of these?
There are a few on ebay right now I was considering but want your opinion first being that this is your cup of tea.
If you know of any for sale I would consider buying them from you as well.
Hi Chris, yeah I figured postage would be something like that - amazing what they're charging these days isn't it :-\ Anyway, I'm definitely down for your clear/orange but I won't be able to organise $ until this Friday as I'm flying home from interstate tomorrow and then going on holidays down the coast straight away (lucky me :) my email address is:
If you can send me the final figure and your paypal details during the week I'll get it happening on Friday and away we go :)
Thanks for being willing to send it out to me,
But yes, that's exactly what I mean when I say 'clumped.' It's not so bad, really- it's only visible when the lamp is off. There are maybe three clumps or so, and those are of not more than five fibers each. So it's nothing crucial or pressing, but it's nice to know that there's someone who can fix it and fix it right.
Yep, I got it off ebay. How it happened was funny. We're crazy about 70s Italian horror, and we're watching one where the international fashion model is getting killed in her snazzy Rome apartment by a maniac wearing a studded glove, and JML stops the DVD and starts hollering- 'Do you SEE that? Do you REMEMBER those? What ARE those?' and I calmly answer, 'It's a Fantasia lamp...' so of course I had to get one. The Cuda was a nice fit, I think- actual Fantasias seem to go for more than I'm willing to drop right now, and, honestly, I think I prefer the activity of the Cuda's wheel. I was helped by the fact that the ebay listing was kinda uniformed, and I think I got it at a good price.
The moss, yes- our gorgeous T. usneoides. They've grown back to their usual glory, but it took some time... 20 years ago Hugo blew it all out, and boy, that made Charleston look weird.
I don't know much about Beaufort- I'm a Charleston boy all my life. I wonder which base you stayed at here. Isn't Laurel Bay USMC? We've got the AFB, and we had the Navy Yard (my father worked there, nuke containment)...
As for the Cuda, we've already got it. It's a Galaxy Model 101- the spray is on the good side of decent, but there's a bit of clumping and I'm terrified. I think at one point you did a batch of cleaning... no pressure, but if you get philanthropic again, let me know!
