Cyber Monday 2014 Deals

Nov 27, 14 Cyber Monday 2014 Deals

Every year you’ll find fantastic deals for Black Friday.  And while we’re as glad as any to give you access to huge discounts on products, we know that the long lines, early mornings, and cold weather following a sedate Thanksgiving can be a huge shock to the system (not to mention the ferocious press of people all seeking the same great deals in-store).  That’s why we recommend the relaxed and warm environment of Cyber Monday, so you can get great deals from the comfort of your couch.  At 1000Bulbs.com we have something for everyone, from commercial fixtures and residential lighting to Christmas decorations and the ubiquitous AA battery.  But it’s best to plan ahead since access to all of these great prices is only on December 1, 2014, and once they go live, they’ll sell out fast!

How to Light your Jewelry Display

Nov 05, 14 How to Light your Jewelry Display

Blue diamond engagement rings should speak for themselves. So should the other gorgeous jewels inside the cases across your shop. Yet even with unique hand cut diamonds and superb pricing, your merchandise still has to leave a ‘sparkle’ in the customers’ eyes. The most common sentence uttered in a jewelry store? “It just doesn’t shine enough.”

One of the biggest attractions when visiting a jewelry store is seeing the dazzle of the diamonds. Without that dazzle, no matter how lovely or interesting the jewels being sold are, individuals are not as attracted to the merchandise.
