Throughout this process, I’ve received many emails asking about light bulbs. Many people have said there are no light bulbs made in the USA. If you were to go to any big box store, they would be right, but the internet would (thankfully) prove them wrong.
Finally, the time came to focus on light… and bulbs. I scoured the aisles at Home Depot, Lowes, Walmart & Ace Hardware. No luck. Amazing, I thought. And sad. I couldn’t find a single American made light bulb at any of them. Then, I hopped online and went to work. After just a few minutes, I was in luck. It wasn’t impossible after all. In fact, it was quite simple. The Aero-Tech Light Bulb Company manufactures a wide range of light bulbs, much of them made in the USA.
One thing I’ve learned thoughout this process is that sometimes patience is necessary to purchase American-made. If you go to the store and need something immediately, you might be out of luck. But if you plan ahead, and do a little research, you just might find what you are looking for.
