Bethlehem Lights Festive Greens Basket with Lit Beaded Chain
I ORDERED 2, ONE STOPPED WORKING. I REPLACED IT. THEN THE OTHER ONE FROM THE ORIGINAL ORDER STOPPED WORKING! THE BASETS ARE PRETTY BUT THE BATTERY CASE SEAL STILL LET IN WATER. IN THE NORTHEAST WE NEED PRODUCTS THAT CAN HOLD UP TO RAIN, SNOW, ICE, AND FREEZING TEMPS.
Purchased this for the front of my house which was in dire need of some Christmas lights. We always put our decorations on the lawn....so I was thrilled when it came and it really brightened up the front porch. Problem is it only lasted about a week and then the lights no longer lit up. Tried new batteries to no avail. Too bad because I have many Bethlehem Light products and have always been happy with them. Oh well, back it goes! :(
not what I was expecting. Disappointed!!
The basket I received looked like the greenery was hap-hazardly just tossed in the basket with only 1 very small pine cone. It looks very cheap & unattractive. The beads that the basket hangs from are cheap looking too. They look nicer lit up but during the day the whole presentation is extremely disappointing! Definitely NOT worth $40 plus shipping- not even worth $20. Looks nothing like it did on TV or online. Would have returned if my daughter had not thrown the box away. My advice is not to purchase.
Stopped Working in a Month
I received this about a month ago. I thought it was very pretty when it was lit and was enjoying it till it stopped working. It worked for about a month and I thought it needed new batteries. New batteries did not make it work. If you purchase it, I hope you have better luck than I did. It is a lot of money to spend for a month's worth of working!
This has proved to be a wonderful addition to our Christmas decorations.
I purchased in multi-color. I have not had a problem with the illumination at all. Keeping fingers crossed. I did notice that it hung awkward and also found one of the colored beads is shorter than the others. Not noticeable enough to return :D I am however a bit disappointed with the pine cones and other add ins. The Pine cones are TINY, nothing like shown in picture or on video, but like I said before it is lovely and livens up the room it's in :D All the input from customers will help Bethlehem improve on the product. Thanks for the lovely Basket QVC and Bethlehem. It's a shame people can't give positive feedback along with their complaints.. *PS QVC how bout adding EVERYONE! to your question about "who would this be a perfect gift for? Just suggesting :D
Great for a terrace
I bought 2 of these baskets and love them. I use the timer feature and they light up nicely. I like the fade in and out feature. They were packed well and just needed a little freshening, but were ready to hang once the batteries were installed. I do have to say they use a lot of batteries, 6 AA in each basket, but as long as they last the entire holiday season, I guess it is OK.
Perfect outside decoration
I purchased three of these in the gold/silver and they are great! They go on every day at 5 PM and turn off six hours later. I never have to fuss with them. I have the summer baskets that light up and was thrilled that they offered Christmas baskets with lights! During daylight hours they look very pretty with the pinecone decorations. Thanks for helping me decorate the outside of my house!
Pretty Basket but Unreliable Lights
Got this around Thanksgiving and it looked great at night all lit up. Then last week stopped working. Tried different batteries and still nothing. Very disappointed. Too expensive to only work for a month. Pretty basket but Bethlehem needs to improve on the lighting aspect. Waste of money.
only worked for 3 nights
I ordered 2 baskets and will be returning both after Christmas. They are very pretty and well made with the exception of the lighting portion. When I received them, I put fresh batteries in both baskets and they worked well for 3 nights. I had them on the timer feature figuring they would last from after Thanksgiving through New year's Eve. WRONG! Purchased new batteries and now only 1 basket works and the other not at all. I will be returning both after Christmas. Disappointed as they look nice even when not lit-but the purpose of buying these was the illumination feature. This is not the 1st Bethlehem Lights product I have had trouble with. It is always with the illumination portion of the product.
I ordered 3 of these and they came this afternoon. Had to fluff them up a bit. I put the batterirs in and they all worked fine. My side kitchen door can be seen from the road and has a large awning covering the steps and small landing. So I hung them from the awning bars and they look very nice. I have one more coming. So far so good. I am very glad I got them to cheer up that area at Christmas time
3rd Attempt To Get One that works properly..
I really like this little basket.. Is is small but I have just the right kitchen nook to hang
it in. Problem is that I may be counting on it too much, as I await the 3rd replacement
of this item.
1st one was badly lopsided w/ 1 light strand a good inch longer than the other two. I was not successful in adjusting it to balance out and hang level.
2nd arrangement looked great but the lights popped on as soon as I put batteries in and the switch was in the "off" position..Then, the lights stayed on & would not turn off.. Switch slid back & forth.. No functions on the battery pack worked at all.
With respect I ask,,"WHERE ARE THE QUALITY CONTROL FOLKS WHO ARE SUPPOSED TO INSURE THAT WE RECEIVE OUR QUALITY MERCHANDISE?"
In an effort to overcome these obstacles & in order to obtain my little Christmas basket, I am trying one more time to receive a basket which hangs correctly, has the lights, & all it's functions working, properly. Seems to be a hit or miss and if this item had not been on Easy-Pay, I would have probably accepted defeat after my first attempt & said "Bah, humbug" on this one and moved on..
