{Lighting Emergency!}


I'm in a panic. My favorite light is burning out. O U T !

The light I speak of is my branch of cherry blossom lights from World Market. Okay, I knew they wouldn't last forever. But guess what? World Market is closing all their Omaha stores! And the lights cannot seem to be purchased online! I'm having trouble finding something similar {that isn't in the UK or whatnot}.

{See?! Some of the branches are going out.}
And the description states: "Due to straight-line construction, if one bulb burns out the rest will remain lit." Liars!

So, what do I do? Do I start harassing other World Market stores? Have an electrician take a look at them {desperate much...}? Give up & let them die?

I'm so sad.

Eek. How beautiful and how sad. I wonder if they would be able to mail you a replacement?

Sarah said...

Cassandra said...

What??? Why is World Market closing their stores? Is there a giant sale planned? Should I drive down for it? Ooh... I'm kind of sad.

Start a blog petitioning World Market to not leave Omaha. Blogs resolve everything, don't they? :)

Thank you so much for your kindness. I appreciate you and Callie and your thoughtful words. Hugs!

Those lights are so cool!

I have no advice, but those are so adorable and I've never seen anything like them! Good luck!

Lacey said...

If you can't track down bulbs, I would take it to a lighting shop that has an electrician. It's too adorable to let die.

That's crap about the World Markets closing. I can't believe that since they always have great affordable stuff. Sorry about the light.

Hollie said...

i LOVE World Market and hope so badly that they don't close the one closest to me!! Ughh, everyone is closing it seems!

surely there is someone out there that can help you.

Good luck! It is an adorable lamp!

Freck said...

Those are cute lights! I want to get one asap! good luck with your search :)

lauren said...

ohhh i hate when that happens. i go to the world market by my house about once a week (i know, i know...) but i'll check for you there and see if they have any!

Southern Belle said...

I dunno if they do this or not, but have you checked to see if they'll call other stores and ship them to you? I know Pottery Barn and other places do that. Just a thought!!!!
