I just bought 4 Safari lamps from eBay

Cheetah, Leopard, Snakeskin, and Tortoise. (I already had Zebra)

I'm so excited and stunned that I think I may barf

Edit: I barfed

Years from now I'm going to be talking to other women about The Best Day of Our Life like "Yeah the day my son was born was cool but that day I got all my Safaris was LIT"

Goo kits nowhere to be found!

So i cannot find a goo kit ANYWHERE. Magma Towers is and has been out of stock. I spoke to them 2 weeks ago and he told me that they will restock by the end of last week and that they were having some problems with their suppliers. And here it is 2 weeks later and still out of stock. They are apparently the only ones on this planet that make/made them. I can't find even the mention of one anywhere. Someone please prove me wrong. There must be a goo kit out there for me somewhere.

That time I actually exploded a 60s/70s Enchantress Planter

Kids, here are some simple Don'ts:

1. If your lava lamp bulb burns out, Don't replace it with a 60w lightbulb you found lying around the house.

2. Don't then proceed to leave your lamp turned on for several days in a row.

On that fateful day, I returned home from school and trudged to my bedroom as usual, only to find that my lava lamp had exploded from overheating, and everything I owned located in the blast radius of…

$750, 11-lamp eBay listing amid a global pandemic and yes, of course I bought it

The listing was for 11 lamps, all the same size, a glowing, veritable rainbow of wax colors suspended in clear liquids. A Dream Listing. There was one photograph of 11 lighted lamps, accompanied by one brief, pixellated YouTube video of the lamps in action. Price was $600 for the lamps and $150 for shipping.  I check the seller's rating, feedback, and other items for sale, and seller seems legit. I send the seller a message gently inquiring about the size of the lamps, as that info was not…

$15 Midnight from eBay

So the other day I was checking the new "lava lamp" listings on eBay, as I do every 30 mins or so. I'm not obsessed.

A listing popped up for a Midnight, pink/clear, with base and cap in good condition. Price: $15. Selling for heavy discount because "Lava doesn't flow."

The pics looked fine. I hit the Buy It Now button. Shortly thereafter, I received a message from the seller. "Just making sure you saw in the listing description that the lava doesn't flow." I…

Re Done Lava Lamp

My mom died and I received her 1960 lava lamp , It is the one that has the big screw top with the big mouth opening jar is 11 1/4 high without base, The wax was shot so I dumped everything out and did some research and by trial and error and trying different methods but then came up with my own formula I got my lava lamp to work great,  The ooz floats to the top in  small and large  ooz then  drops down to the bottom and splashes the bottom ooz back to the top and it is like the movie The…

Just scored a bin full of lamps for 40 bucks

So the guy said there is 20 lamps in this bin. For 40 bucks I think it was a good score.

Mathmos Factory visit pt 2

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…

Looking for information on this lamp

.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.…

Looking for a color wheel motor

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.,

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…

Sun Fading

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…

All that Glitters is Gold

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…
