Set of 3 Lit Glitter Sequin Trees with Timers
Seems I have plenty of company in my opinion of these trees..I bought during first Xmas in July show and just stored until Thanksgiving weekend when I always do my holiday decorating...guess what, the big tree would not light up no matter how many batteries I tried!! What a huge disappointment..I had the perfect spot to show these lovely trees off....NOT!!,Do not waste your money...just sent mine back yesterday..not an inconvenience I needed during this busy season..where is QVC's quality control when we need it?
I opened the package containing my 2 sets of trees last night. By the time I got them all out of the packaging, it looked like a glitter & sequin bomb had exploded in my kitchen. I vacuumed for 45 minutes and there is still some glitter that I'll probably never get up off my new plank flooring. Only one of the trees lit as expected. Two didn't light at all and the others were shaky. I found that I had to prop the battery cases up just so in order to get steady light. A catch on one of the battery cases fell off immediately. I called customer service and they told me they would cover return shipping if I put tape on the defective parts. I can't get this junk out of my house fast enough. I wish I could give a rating of -10 stars.
I received two sets of these last week and like other reviewers I had trouble with the lights working...3 of the six would not light, even with brand new batteries. They will be going back. This was an expensive mistake. Don't waste your money!
not a good buy
The sequins on these cones are dropping off like snow flakes..
To turn it off and on you must open the battery box.And there is no timer.
A true piece of junk!!!
I thought you sold quality merchandise.
Very happy I ordered these trees
I received my trees about 2 weeks ago and i just love them, I wanted the gold ones as well but they were sold out. I have read a lot of negative reviews here and I have to say, when you are dealing with something that has glitter and sequins on it of course you are going to have some shedding of the loose material.. I love these trees, they all light and I have them on my mantel just as Lisa Robertson showed in her presentation and they look just beautiful, I am not one bit sorry that i ordered them. They don't look cheap either, I have seen other trees similar to these in a few stores and they all shed some glitter. I also ordered the luminaria candles in red and I am now waiting to receive them and my mantle will be complete.
I have ordered quite a bit from QVC and I have to say out of all of the items I have purchased which is a high number I have only sent back two things because I was not happy with it....otherwise the quality of the merchandise is excellent. Thank you QVC
As previous reviewers stated, sequins and glitter all fell off when I opened the box and took them out. I now have it all over my house. Two of the three trees do not light up.
Sparkles, Sparkles Everywhere
Yes, there were sparkles everywhere when I opened the box. But they look really cool! I purchased the gold to put next to my hurricane lamp filled with gold and silver christmas balls. Makes my house look festive. I haven't tried using the batteries yet so I can't comment.
I purchased this item after seeing how Lisa Robertson used them in decorating her home. They looked beautiful on TV but definitely not so much once you receive them . So many sequins fell off while trying to remove them from the box that I doubted any would be left on the tress. There are some remaining but still falling off onto my mantle. Once again I am not returning this item because it's just too much hassle! QVC should rethink where they are getting their Christmas decorations from . While searching another shopping channel, I found decorations and ornaments of a much superior quality from very well known companies !
Cheaply made, very disappointed
Bought these for my daughter and was with her when she opened them. How embarrassing to see a snow storm of sequins fall out of the box, all over her, her carpet and her very curious dog. She is still vacuuming up glitter and sequins! Extremely disappointed in the quality, where is QVC's quality control? Wish I would have checked the reviews before I ordered. Will do so in the future. Very poor product.
I am happy with these trees now...
Negatives, I took them out of the box and yes as others are saying sparkles and glitter went everywhere, which I was surprised based on the cost of the set. I had to fool with the battery box for the middle tree as it would not light but I finally got it working.
Positives, I purchased the gold trees and placed these on an antique table with a huge mirror in back of it and they look spectacular in my formal living room the glow is warm and they invite your eyes to look at them when you walk into the room.
Conclusion, its a very mixed review because I love the way they look but I think the Q missed an opportunity on these because they are far too expensive for the mess and the intermittent tree lighting issues, I felt like I would have purchased these at Walmart or a Job Lot at half the price of what I paid at the Q.
One of three does not light
Will have to try slamming the box around, like the previous review...
I agree that when you first unpack them, they are messy, but that's usually the case with any decoration with glitter, so no big deal. However, I thought they had more lights on them than they actually do -- I guess I should have paid closer attention to the presentation. I like the height of the trees and they look nice next to my fireplace. I'm glad I only ordered one set though.
