Hello all, a bit of a strange request here. I am looking for a green moai looking (I think) 'plasma' type lamp like the one behind the bar at the Tiki-Ti.
I dont know why, but I love the look of that thing and simply MUST have one, so if anyone could help out it would be grrrrrrrrrrrrrrreatly appreciated

Thanks AmostHuman. Unfortunately there is no longer a Spencer's gifts anywhere near me. There used to be one at the local mall, but it shut down years ago.
I checked their website, but they only have a store locator. I tried calling their customer service to request a catalog, but was told that they hadnt put out a catalog in "Oh...15 years or so", and the lady on the phone didnt really seem to care too much that I was trying to do business with them.
Just a heads up for anyone that doesnt have a spencer's near them.

aw man...That blows dead bears. I'm sorry to hear that. I'm surprised that L.A. doesn't have a Spencers .

Upon closer inspection, there is a spencer's in LA, I just didnt see it the first time. Oops
I have located something very similar from a company called Lumisource, seen here:
http://www.mpodesigns.com/product/LSSPOOKYELECTRA
(Just imagine that in a moai shape), but their site doesnt show the one that I'm looking for.
I was really hoping to just order this thing online, but it looks like I'm going to have to take a trip over to west LA, trust me the traffic sucks

Call before you drive any distance to make sure they have one. Tiki is a summer theme and it's likely that they don't have any right now. They seem to stock them and other weird tiki items every summer.

I got one that hasn't really found a home in my collection, I'd trade for just about any Munktiki or Bosko mug.
