Customer Question

I used to be able to buy very bright, small light bulbs that fit into various pieces of furniture. Two went into my china closet, two into a light bridge over my queen-size bed, and one went into a display cabinet. All these pieces are of the same design, and are about 15+ years old.
I can no longer find these bulbs. I have purchased what was supposed to be the same bulb, but they only lasted 2-3 weeks, while the ones I used to purchase (which were G.E. bulbs) lasted for several months!
Can you tell me if there is anything to replace the bulbs I used to buy?

You can replace your bulbs with LED light bulbs.
They are more expensive but they last a long time.
They also use less energy and put out less heat.
All types and sizes are available.
I have posted a link to show you a sample.
They are available at the big stores and just about
anywhere you have been buying Light bulbs.
I will be glad to answer any questions you may have.

Stores like Lowes and Home Depot
have the largest variety.
You may want to take an old bulb
with you. The store employee will be glad to
help you find the new type LED that is a match for your
old style bulbs.
