Vintage look- Modern technology- Beautiful LEDs

We talk to customers all of the time that want the look of incandescent bulbs but the energy savings of LED. They don’t like the look of the traditional LEDs when they are in exposed fixtures. I understand- I love LEDs and use them in my house, but for my fixtures where the bulb can be seen, I like the classic look of a filament bulb.

So that leads us to vintage look LED filament style bulbs. They are wonderful substitutes for the old style incandescent and they look GREAT.    I went out to our showroom today to get some pictures of these bulbs in action, and they are impressive to see. The advantages of LEDs for these types of applications are many- but one major one is longevity. Ever had to get on that ladder to replace a chandelier bulb that burned out?
You might never have to do that again once you switch to LED
. We carry them in clear and the antique amber bulbs. Check them out today!

People ask these questions all of the time. In fact, when sitting at a bar, having a beer and talking with friends or eating a burger at a cookout, this stuff comes up. (They also ask us what in the world made us start selling light bulbs, but that’s another story)

This is what I think about every time I get this question

“Why don’t you mark your boxes ‘FRAGILE'”?
Truth? The post office and UPS don’t care. We could write “PLEASE  these are light bulbs! Be careful!!!” and they wouldn’t care. FRAGILE means nothing to the shippers. Sad, but true.
