Default Dont you find it kinda funny....

How people OBSESS over lava lamps but not other retired exclusive very much that are worth more???? I was looking at the value of the venus flytrap and I discovered it was retired BEFORE the blue lava lamp. Same with the Ice cream tree and the lollypop tree! All 3 of which I want are worth the same, or more, than the blue lava lamp. You see, I was looking for something to trade for a flytrap that was fair and I am not about to trade my blue lava for it!!!

Sorry, this is my rant for the day. I hope you think I am not COMPLETLY wacko!

People seem to like the lava lamps better, which makes their value go up. (I remember when I got my first Venus Flytrap Plant, which it was an exclusive then, I sold it, because I didn't like it.) This happens with plenty of other things too. For example generally clothing items go for much higher items, like items from year one can be valued less then year two clothing items. Or that Wacky Jeans seem to go for more then White Bunny Ears. Not only does age affect items value, but so does popularity.

Hope this doesn't confuse you too badly! xD

Well it's maybe a long lasting trend... One person wants lava lamps, then another person, then a whole group and now most members want it? LOL
Otherwise, my other guess is that because there are 4 types of lavas, and people may want some to complete their collection and such. I actually just completed mine a week ago.

Supply and demand sets your prices. Things that don't come up as often because they are kept in collections like lava lamps are harder to trade for than things that come up a lot because most people don't collect them. I've found in the clubhouse actual value from the guide here really doesn't mean a thing. How popular something is determines how easy it will be to get. Not uncommon to trade a newer popular item for a retired higher value old item.

Strange. . . . . in my experiences the green, blue & purple lavas aren't desired that much anymore. It's mainly the red lava IMO, LOL. I think the Fancy Tea Service is also not as desired in the TRs, it's mainly the long, long, long retired stuff and the new, new, new items and of course those long-lasting trends like Rockstar Sunglasses, Nafaria's Purple Slippers, etc.

I agree 100% with you storypanda.. Its very tricky trading away the Green, blue and the purple in the clubhouse.

Hmm.. I didn't realize that. I actually have the Flytrap, the Icecream Tree and the Lollypop Tree. I think it might be because the lava lamp is really cool looking. I dont have it but I would much rather have that than the Lollipop Tree...

Um.. WI WIKI Values are not the same as trading room values. WI's values are only for its personal trading system, some people trade differently from it, some don't.

I agree with all the above statements, it is funny how trends emerge from one or a group of people asking for something, i have noticed that trend happens with sayings as well.

I don't find it strange. There are some exclusives that are just cooler than others The lava lamps are so cute! I love the venus fly trap, but it doesn't move or anything, so it's just not as interesting to me.
