Selling Lights with Timers since 2009

I pack and ship lights to customers every day during the year. When I first started this business lights were mainly for Christmas, and I saw very little interest from January through September. Now, these lights are used for many things, but they have become particularly popular at weddings. In fact, I developed the small 10-LED lights specifically for brides to help keep their costs down. My daughter recently got married, so I appreciate how expensive everything can be. The factory thought that I was a bit crazy trying to create a light for under $2, but we did it, and they are happy that they listened to me. Now, everyone seems to offer these lights.

I do the majority of my products in components. That gives my customers some flexibility to create products that they want. They can add to existing pieces or create combinations that just don't exist elsewhere.

I will continue to listen to your suggestions, and I will continue to work on my products to offer you the best lighting supplies in the business.

    I started this business in 2009. Our first product was a 24 hr pill timer. From there we started our string lights on a timer, and we have grown the business from there.

    I love, love, love DIY! And what better way to DIY than to help everyone with their projects by supplying fairy string lights!

We accept Paypal, Credit Cards, and Etsy gift cards at our shop. We ship 6 days a week. During Christmas season, we ship 2 times each work day and once on Saturday. Our pick-up for Postal Orders is at 10 am. Orders placed before that time will go out for this pick-up. During Christmas season, orders placed between 10 am and 5 pm Monday through Friday will be delivered to the Post Office that evening. Saturday cutoff for shipments in noon on Saturday at all times of the year.

Sales tax is only charged to residents of Mississippi. If you live outside of the USA, you may be subject to Duties and Taxes. These fees are your responsibility.

We ship quickly. If you place and order and then want to cancel it, you can, but you need to do so quickly. If you cancel after an order is shipped, you will be responsible for return shipping, and your shipping will not be refunded.
We usually ship orders the day we get them. The pricing on each item is for USPS shipping. Items under 16 ounces will ship First Class. (For International Packackes, the First Class limit is 2 lbs.) All other packages will ship Priority Mail. Most of the US is covered in 2 to 3 days with First Class and Priority Mail shipping, but this is not a guaranteed delivery service. If you need guaranteed delivery time, send us a message, and we can give you a quotation for FedEx Home Delivery, Ground, or Air shipping.

We have insurance for lost packages and mis-delivered packages that cannot be recovered. Insurance does not cover packages that are delivered to the correct address. Shipping services no longer cover stolen packages. If a package is missing, contact us as soon as possible.
Additional policies and FAQs
When buying batteries, it is best to purchase brand name alkaline batteries for the longest burn time. Rechargeable batteries discharge constantly, so they are not recommended for this type of application.

Do not purchase batteries that are designed for long shelf life. (For example, Quantum) "Longest lasting" does not mean that it will operate these lights for the longest time. It means that they will last the longest when not in use.

Don't pay extra for lithium batteries. They are good for digital cameras and other devices that use a lot of power in a short burst, but not for these types of lights that draw low power steadily over a period of time.
This Privacy Policy describes how and when we collect, use, and share information when you purchase an item from us, contact us, or otherwise use my services through or its related sites and services.

This Privacy Policy does not apply to the practices of third parties that we do not own or control, including Etsy or any third party services you access through Etsy. You can reference the Etsy Privacy Policy to learn more about its privacy practices.

Information We Collect

To fulfill your order, you must provide us with certain information (which you authorized Etsy to provide to me), such as your name, email address, postal address, payment information, and the details of the product that you’re ordering. You may also choose to provide us with additional personal information, if you contact us directly (for example, personal information for customization).

Why We Need Your Information and How We Use It

We rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use, and share your information, including:

- as needed to provide my services, such as when I use your information to fulfill your order, to settle disputes, or to provide customer support;

- when you have provided your affirmative consent, which you may revoke at any time, such as by signing up for my mailing list;

- if necessary to comply with a legal obligation or court order or in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about your purchases if required by tax law; and

- as necessary for the purpose of my legitimate interests, if those legitimate interests are not overridden by your rights or interests, such as 1) providing and improving my services. I use your information to provide the services you requested and in my legitimate interest to improve my services; and 2) Compliance with the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use. I use your information as necessary to comply with my obligations under the Etsy Seller Policy and Terms of Use.

Information Sharing and Disclosure

Information about my customers is important to my business. I share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:

- Etsy. I share information with Etsy as necessary to provide you my services and comply with my obligations under both the Etsy Seller Policy and Etsy Terms of Use.

- Service providers. I engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to my shop, such as delivery companies. I will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.

- Business transfers. If I sell or merge my business, I may disclose your information as part of that transaction, only to the extent permitted by law.

- Compliance with laws. I may collect, use, retain, and share your information if I have a good faith belief that it is reasonably necessary to: (a) respond to legal process or to government requests; (b) enforce my agreements, terms and policies; (c) prevent, investigate, and address fraud and other illegal activity, security, or technical issues; or (d) protect the rights, property, and safety of my customers, or others.

Data Retention

I retain your personal information only for as long as necessary to provide you with my services and as described in my Privacy Policy. However, I may also be required to retain this information to comply with my legal and regulatory obligations, to resolve disputes, and to enforce my agreements. I generally keep your data for the following time period: Less than 2 years.

Your Rights

If you reside in certain territories, including the EU, you have a number of rights in relation to your personal information. While some of these rights apply generally, certain rights apply only in certain limited cases. I describe these rights below:

- Access. You may have the right to access and receive a copy of the personal information I hold about you by contacting me using the contact information below.

- Change, restrict, delete. You may also have rights to change, restrict my use of, or delete your personal information. Absent exceptional circumstances (like where I am required to store data for legal reasons) I will generally delete your personal information upon request.

- Object. You can object to (i) my processing of some of your information based on my legitimate interests and (ii) receiving marketing messages from me after providing your express consent to receive them. In such cases, I will delete your personal information unless I have compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons.

- Complain. If you reside in the EU and wish to raise a concern about my use of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with your local data protection authority.

Frequently asked questions
How quickly do you ship orders?

Orders received before noon will ship same day by USPS.

Do you sell wholesale?

Yes. We have special rates for one-time large orders and for regular orders for stores and crafters. If you cannot find what you need in the shop, send me a convo.

Can you provide a brief description of the various power options?

We have a lot of power options for your lights. AA Battery Pack, Waterproof AA Battery Pack, Waterproof Battery Pack, USB Input, 110V Plug-in, and Solar-powered Battery Pack.

AA batteries are common. They are small are easy to hide. If you are working with a small set of lights, these packs are good options.

D batteries provide 5 to 10 times as much battery life, but the larger packs are more difficult to hide.

Solar Packs are rechargeable battery packs. The solar pack requires sun light to recharge.

110V is for US and Canadian markets. Other countries can use our USB input to create a local plug-in option.

What options do you offer for Fairy Lights?

Length: We offer lights from 20 inches long up to 300 feet long.

Color: We offer all options with silver or copper wire. (Because the lights reflect off of the metal, the copper lights are considered "warmer".)

LED Color: Most of our lights are warm white. We offer cool white in only a few products. We offer red, green, blue, and pink LEDs in our short length products.
