    thought about it, and still thinking about it for next year. I personally would like to know some more about it, like the start up cost, the pricing, packages etc that people do. It is something that I would love to get into, but I am just not sure whether or not it would be another hassle to deal with

    I HEAR IT CAN BE SOME GOOD MONEY DOING THIS. IT'S JUST LIKE ANYTHING ELSE YOU HAVE TO FIND THE CUSTOMERS THAT WANT IT DONE.

    WE ARE SO BUSY DOING LEAF CLEAN-UPS AND THEN THE SNOWPLOWING WE JUST DON'T HAVE THE TIME TO DO THIS TYPE OF WORK. GOOD LUCK IN THIS AREA !!

    Welcome Bigwiv. Using all capital letters makes your post hard to read.

    I recently spoke with a guy locally that offers this service. He buy the lights in large spools. Sell it by the foot installed and for theirs to keep or to use seasonally, then he will take down. Said he works about 3 weeks in December, then another 2 weeks in January and brings in around $13K.

    I think LED holiday lights are going to be a big deal. Has anyone seen these yet? Click image for link.

    Yes, they are VERY bright, from what I've read, they're = to a 60-75 watt bulb.
