About Us

Why we do what we do....

Lights are more than just bulbs and wire. Strings of lights wrapped in trees are magical. Lights decorating trees and homes for Christmas are part of our childhood memories. They take us back to simpler times and our happiest occasions.

We love being a part of that. We’re helping customers across the US light up all of life’s celebrations.

In business since October 15th 2005, trust us to make your life sparkle.

Shellie Gardner


Hi, I’m Shellie and I’ve used my 20+ years of Electrical Engineering, Project Management, Sales and Marketing experience to create Christmas Light Source. I jump out of bed with a big smile on my face every morning because I visit with folks about Christmas lights all year long! This is more than a business; I’m on a mission to make all of life’s celebrations brighter!

David worked for 30+ years as a computer programmer working on DoD projects and for major companies. He jumped into Christmas Light Source because he was tired of seeing Shellie have all the fun. 


Wide Variety of Lights and Hardware

You can find just about anything you'll need for the smallest craft project to the largest city tree or main street display. Search the wide variety of colors in either retro vintage styles or the best and latest in LED Christmas lighting.

In addition to light strings, bulbs, cords, nets and rope, you can also find the commercial installation hardware that will make your project look more finished.

We don't want to just sell you lights, we want to help you make the special moments of your life sparkle.

Shipping and Customer Service

The first half of the year, we ship Monday - Thursday and most orders placed before 1:00 CST will ship the same day. Other orders will leave the next business day. If there is a question or delay in the shipment of your order, you'll hear from us right away.

After September 1st, we ship Monday - Friday and most orders ship within 1-2 business days.

Problem with your order? Life happens. If a string of lights doesn't light up, we'll troubleshoot it with you and if we can't easily walk you through correcting the issue, we'll send you a replacement. No muss, no fuss.

Our Customers

We've been lucky to get to know and do business with residential customers across the country.

We've also worked with government institutions and companies such as:

  • The Capitol Tree
  • Macy's
  • Neiman Marcus
  • The National Botanic Garden
  • Gap
  • The Chicago Transit Authority
  • The Holy Land Experience
  • Six-Flags
  • The US Navy
  • .....and more.

We've grown over the years, sold millions of light bulbs, 10's of thousands of Christmas light strings, and made new folks part of our team but we'll never be so big that we'll treat our customers like anyone but friends.

We hope you'll let us help make your Christmas and all of life's celebrations sparkle with lights!
