Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock you have heard the news that this is the year that the government has mandated we begin changing over to the new energy efficient lightbulbs such as CFL’s and LED’s. The cost of CFL’s has gone down considerably but LED’s are still on […]

Upon closer inspection these candles were actually LED lit and contained an ingenious flickering mechanism that mimicked a real flame. We were instantly smitten […]
