these lights don't look like they give off much light but they lite up the entire backyard and our back yard is pretty large. Only whis that target would provide a place to buy replacement bulbs.
For over a year I've been drooling over Edison bulb string lights offered at a much higher price at a certain "Hardware" store. I considered purchasing multiple times, but just couldn't validate the price. Then last month I found these, and they're perfect. I actually prefer these to the ones I was looking at because the wire isn't as thick and rubbery, looking more delicate as I think string lights should. They look awesome with my vintage industrial decor.
The only problem I have with them is one of the bulbs burnt out as soon as I plugged it in. Since then, no other bulbs have burned out -over a month plugged in 24/7-. It wasn't a problem, since I'm hiding the plug and wiring with curtains, so I could easily hide the bulb. Just kind of annoying, and otherwise they're great.
