I’ve been looking for lights exactly like them – industrial edison-style bulbs, but that are actually LED – i’ve found some, but pricey, so curious where you got yours and if you’re comfortable sharing, how much they cost. I’f you could e-mail that would be awesome, but I’ll try to check back here as well. Thanks so much! :)
