I've got to give the NE boys a hard time. I'm sure they they think NE is Gods gift to holiday lighting with Brite Ideas and HD being there. They probably think think their different versions of the Light Link should win them some sort of worldly recognition. I think Mike would put LL's on the Vatican if you gave him a chance to do it! But here in Texas you have Lite Source, Christmas Designers (their bows are made in south Texas), Christmas Decor, 1000bulbs.com, Lite-Netics, and a few others. Vickerman even has a showroom here in Dallas. For some reason Lubbock is home to Christmas Decor, Lite-Netics, Lite Source, and one other small supplier. I would think that Lite Source alone may outsell NE. I wouldn't be surprised if TX out sold the children of the corn several times over. I'm sure we can find some space for Scott or Chad to come set up shop if they want to head south like many other business's have done.
