On Etsy since 2007

I have a lamp obsession.

There. I said it. If feels good to get that out. ;-)

I started making personalized night lights back in 2007 at the request of a friend. When I first saw what she wanted, I thought, "I can't do that!" But, she encouraged me to try, and hers was the first one I made to go in her French Country kitchen. A few of her friends saw it, and things just kind of took off from there. I opened my Etsy store in 2007, back when Etsy was just in the beginning stages. I ran my store in my "spare" time when I wasn't running in 10 different directions as the Director of a private preschool. Juggling both jobs became too much, and I ended up closing my little shop for a few years. In June 2013, I was able to focus all of my attention to Lightning Bugs, and now work this little business full time!

I personally love these night lights because I always have a lamp on somewhere, and these just seemed to flow into my lamp obsession. I named my shop to reflect these little lights, and I love the way they glow in the night just like real lightning bugs (or fireflies for those of you who are not from the South). :-)

I use the best materials I can find, and many of the trims I use are decorator quality. Like anything else, the better quality materials you put into something, the better the end result. There are very simple lights, with block lettering and simple trims, and some with fancy script lettering and elaborate trim. I always welcome customer requests, and many of my designs are the result of a customer's specific needs to match bedding, walls, rugs, etc.

I've added a few other items to the store, like monogrammed lamp shades that coordinate with the night lights, monogrammed coasters, monogrammed tumblers, monogrammed light switch covers (see a theme here?)...:-) All items are also available with no monogram if that's just not your thing.

Please let me know if you have a special request for an item you'd like made just for you!

Welcome to Lightning Bugs, named in honor of the personalized night lights that I love to make! I enjoy lighting up little nooks in my home with the warm glow of a lamp or night light. I hope you see something you like, and please remember that I'm always more than happy to customize something just for you!

Returns and exchanges
I don't accept returns, exchanges, or cancellations
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
Returns and exchange details
NO REFUNDS OR EXCHANGES. All items have been described honestly, and in most cases pictures are provided. If you have any questions or need further information, please ask BEFORE making your purchase. If you are unsure about a color, please ask BEFORE placing your order. There are no exchanges or refunds if you order turquoise but really needed aqua-just ask me first, and I'll be glad to send you pictures to help you make your decision! If I make a mistake and send you the wrong color, or wrong monogram, etc. I will of course correct that to make sure you receive the item you requested. If you have any problem with the night light base or frame within 2 weeks of shipment of your item, please contact me. After that 2 week period, I cannot be responsible for replacing these items after they've been in use since I have no control over the environment in which they are used. All items I send out are in working order, and have been tested before they are shipped, and are of good quality. When used properly and cared for, these items should last for many years to come...I know this from both personal experience and feedback from my customers!

CANCELLATION POLICY: I am more than happy to cancel a transaction and give a 100% refund as long as I haven't made your item(s) yet. If you have a change of heart, you're changing your decor, have a financial emergency and just can't afford it...just send me a note! No problem at all!
However, if I have completed your order, then the transaction is considered complete, and there can be no cancellation at that point.

I make each item myself, and the nature of handmade items is such that no item is perfect. While I strive for perfection in all I do (and trust me, at times it gets ridiculous), I can't guarantee exact placement of designs, trims or monograms as shown in the listing pictures, although I do try!
Payment
I accept credit cards, Etsy Gift Cards, and Paypal ONLY. No checks, money orders, or wire transfers are accepted.
Shipping
Each item is custom made for you, by me, after your order is placed. Please understand that I am one person, working as quickly as I can to produce items that you will be proud to use and display in your home, or give as a gift. I strive to ship each item ahead of the scheduled ship time, because I understand how that you want your items in your hands as quickly as possible!

Your order will ship in about 2-3 weeks. This time is approximate, and your order may ship sooner if I'm able to, or it may take a bit longer. If the shipment date for your order falls on a postal holiday, it will be due to ship the following business day. During holidays or periods of high order totals, this time frame may increase. Please know that there may be as many as 100 orders in front of yours, and I am working as quickly as I can to fill those orders. I will, however, not let the quality of the products leaving my hands suffer in order to rush an order out the door. There are days and times that are busier than others, so your order may go out later than expected in order to ensure each item is given the attention it deserves. If you're not able to work with this turnaround time, I completely understand, and I can refund your order total and cancel the transaction if needed.

I also have some items already made and ready to ship. Those can be found here: https://www.etsy.com/shop/LightningBugs?section_id=16490144&ref=shopsection_leftnav_9

Most items ship USPS Priority Mail, which includes up to $100 insurance. Some items will ship First Class Mail, and any insurance needs will need to be requested and purchased separately. If you receive an item that was damaged in shipment, it is your responsibility to contact the Post Office to make a claim. I am unable to do that for you.

Custom orders are set up with the assumption customers reside in the U.S. If you live outside of the United States, shipping costs will be more than what is set up with the custom listing, and the extra amount must be paid before your order is processed. If the additional cost for shipping is not paid, your order will be cancelled and you will be fully refunded the original amount paid.

I am thrilled to be able to work with One Tree Planted, and commit to donating one dollar from each item sold in order to help reforestation! Trees are planted in North America, Latin America, Asia and Africa!
