Rated 3 out of 5 by deb3cats Expensive to replace
The candles are beautiful. I ordered replacement bulbs after two of the original stopped working on timer. I ordered a replacement set and two of the bulbs didn't work on the timer setting. Should be higher quality for the price.

My welcome lights sit in the windows of my home which is a considerable distance from the road. (We live on a farm) They show up beautifully and create quite an image from such a distance. I feel we're getting a lot of bang for our buck.
Rated 5 out of 5 by wopa Cost of Bulbs
Don't these reviewers realize that all of the electronics that make these candles flicker and the timer that turns the candles on and off is built into the bulb? This is not an inexpensive incandescent bulb. The light is from an LED and will far outlast an incandescent bulb. The glass part of the bulb simply covers the electronics and makes it look like a regular bulb. Not a bad price for these 4 electronic devices.
Rated 2 out of 5 by Shopndrop247 Nice Candles, But........
I did love these but they tip over very easily & one of mine just fell over & broke & now I can't get the broken bulb out, please build a better candle , & less expensive bulbs & perhaps colored ones for the different holidays!

Yes, these bulbs are expensive and after an intense Internet search the only place you can get these particular bulbs is QVC. I absolutely love Valerie's candles and really wanted back up bulbs since nothing lasts forever. If you don't want to spend the money then don't buy them. But, if you love the unique style and flicker they produce then just go for it. I'm glad I did.
Rated 3 out of 5 by Disney to the max Glad to have replacements....TOO EXPENSIVE
I bought 5 sets of candles and 5 sets of spare bulbs. I'm glad I have spares for down the road..BUT OH MY GOSH THEY ARE TOO EXPENSIVE!! As much as we paid for the candles each one should come with a spare bulb. This is my only Valerie purchase and I love them, and these bulbs but because of the high price I must give them only a 3 rating, otherwise they'd be a 5.
Rated 3 out of 5 by JustwonderN Replacement Bulbs are Waaaaaaay Too Expensive
Love the candles, just ordered two sets after seeing the ones a friend purchased. But I agree with others, the bulbs are too expensive to replace. Costs more than one candle if you break it down. Please lower price or include replacement bulbs with candle purchases. It would be a shame to not feel comfortable using candles due to high cost of replacement bulbs. As another customer stated...it's kinda like being held hostage once you buy the candles and the bulbs burn out what other options do you have...? None. I gave this three stars not due to quality of merchandise but to high cost of replacing bulbs in the future.
A Faithful Customer
Rated 3 out of 5 by Blubryhill Candle replacement for pinecone holder
I bought these for replacements for the pinecone holders. I didn't see any other bulbs. They are clear where the pinecone candle bulbs are frosted.
It would be no big deal but I have the pinecone holders in every window of our home. 30 candles!!! So to see now there are no frosted replacements is disappointing. They do break sometimes by opening the curtain and the candle falls on the floor, etc.
If people think they can't get the broken candle bulb out, just use a needle nose plier to turn the piece of plastic in the candle. It unscrews right out. Also sometimes the glue comes apart when unscrewing, just use a crazy glue to glue back on the screw part.
