Bubble Light Candolier
Lasted One Year
I purchased this last year. When I went to set it up this year, I noticed that the bottom of about three of these lights and melted and therefore deformed...I think it was from the garland so I won't be using the plastic garland this year. Also one of the lights is lighting but has no more liquid in it. I wanted to purchase a replacement bulb but VCS does not sell replacement bulbs for this...only for the string lights and those are not clear "tips." Too bad. I would have rated it higher had I been able to get the proper replacement bulbs.

Glittery Holiday Attention Getter!
This sparkling, red and green candolier was the perfect choice to brighten up and animate a dark lower shelf on our buffet. Absolutely delightful to gaze at, and bring everyone into feeling the nostalgic, holiday cheer. We just love it!

lights don't last long
Got the bubble light candolier and set it up, no problems. Within 2 days (using the set only at night) one of the bulbs burned out.

I grew up in Texas. My grandmother, "Grammy Jewel", loved celebrating Christmas. I remember smelling all of the special candies, cakes and cookies she always made when we entered her home. I loved the gingerbread house she always had just inside the entry. But most of all, I remember being mesmerized by the Bubble Lights on her Christmas tree. I inherited those lights somewhere along the way. They have long since stopped working and I'm not sure where they are after several moves since then. It is wonderful to know I can order them through Vermont Country Store. I always find the most amazing things on your site!

Holiday Bubbling Smiles
Since I was a child I have loved these Bubble Lights I first saw on my Hungarian aunt's tree! Loved watching them adding such wonder and joy. Bought them for my children years later. Babies love to watch them bubble and makes kids smile! They are cool to hang on light fixture over dining room table for holidays for all to watch Bubble!

The Joy of our Bubble Lights
When I was a little girl we had bubble lights for our Christmas tree. As I grew older (maybe about 10) I started to notice that Santa did not always use the bubble lights to decorate the tree and those years without the bubble lights came to be known as "a poor" Christmas. My little brother and I would wake up early and race downstairs to see if the bubble lights were bubbling. The joy we would feel to see those lights was a feeling I thought I would never feel again. I know that sounds selfish but we were kids and toys were all we wanted. " Poor Christmas' " we received items that we needed; a new coat,socks,pencils. My husband and I took a trip to Vermont a few years ago and happened upon your store by accident. As I was floating through your store with a feeling of utmost happiness I spied the Christmas section and to my surprise I saw the bubble lights. I grabbed my husband and pointed to them. He had heard my story of the bubble light Christmas many times. He looked at me and smiled and said " how many strings do ya think we'll need" Last year was the first year my little brother was able to come see us at Christmas, I walked him over to the tree and he said with a smile on his face " no more poor Christmas' for you,that's awesome !" This year when we visited your store I bought 2 strings for my brother. He came up for my birthday and I gave him his bubble lights and I said to him as he was looking down at the lights " you have done a wonderful job raising your son on your own" and I jokingly nudged him and said "always put the lights on....you are richer than you know"...he looked up at me with tears in his eyes.

Remembering the special lights of Christmas
Every time I see these lights it brings me back to the
fondest of memories, to the little white church on the hill, in our town, at Christmas. The church bells ringing, the excitement, the smells of the tree and garlands and these bubble lights.
Every year they were draped with the garland along the front banister and when we kids stood on the platform to sing, in the darkened room,they were so beautiful, and as they bubbled you could hardly take your eyes off them. It was magical.
Every time I see these lights, I also see mom and dad and grandma setting in the audience, with pride on there faces, looking back at me, and I smile.
