Just found this forum.  2nd year hanging lights.  Bought a lot of lights last year before and after Christmas and already got a decent amount of money in lights and cords this year.  I'd say I got atleast 15-20K lights on the house and yard right now.  I really have been hitting the big box stores when the lights are on sale but I'm hoping you guys can shed  some insite on how to build my inventory.  Best deals instores I've seen is like $15 for 200 count led strands on a reel and maybe as low as a $1 a box after Christmas for non led mini lights.  I'm looking to find the best places to purchase lights & chords in bulk.  I want to do atleast a 20' mega tree next year and I'm thinking nice arches over the driveway and maybe even wrapping the house.  My brother had a display 10 years ago with over 40K white lights on his ranch and I wanna destroy those numbers.  I'm also planning on starting the whole LOR next year.  Any help or suggestions is appreaciated, especially with black Friday coming up.  I'd rather spend the money buying in bulk than chasing 50% off sales at the big box places.  Thanks in advance.

Welcome to PC. When I first started buying lights in bulk I found a lot in the classified section of PC.

I haven't purchased a lot of light strands in bulk but I have purchased reels of rope light, SPT wire, vampire plugs, strobes etc from the following:

www.allthingschristmasandmore.com

www.wowlights.com

www.christmaslightshow.com (Great site for mega tree)

www.3glightingcreations.com

 

I have had good luck with all of these sites.
