Buy Oil Lamps Online
Oil lamps (olive oil lamps, especially) are very cool. They create a gorgeous atmosphere and they can do it cheaply and cleanly. Some oils burn better than others and some oils are safer than others -- you can't go wrong with olive oil, but if you're keen on another type for whatever reason, that's your prerogative of course. You can make your own, certainly, but you can also opt for one of several nifty oil lamp styles. Genie lamps, earthy artsy oil lamps, or even the old school Little House on the Prairie type of oil lamps. (The latter of which may be preferable in some situations because they're the nearest type to having an on and off switch.) Anyhoo, have a look at the cool oil lamps you can buy online, and you can buy them for cheap at Amazon.com!
Strathwood Copper Finish Oil Lamp
This gorgeous set of 3 copper finish oil lamps are made in India. They produce a very bright flame and will provide good lighting for your deck or backyard.

They are rust resistant and will hold up well in the elements, and they have good, solid wide bases to prevent them from knocking over easily. They are 4.5 inches tall and 5.1 inches wide.
Diamond Oil Lamp
Take a good a look at this lamp. If you ever want to send me a Christmas gift, this would be swell! I love this Diamond Oil Lamp! This looks like something you'd have seen in Laura Ingall's bedroom and I would love to have one. And to think, my grandparents had these when I was a kid and I actually thought they were ridiculous. I love them now and would love to this model.
Green Oil Lamp
