As an authorized distributor of Sunblossom Solar Gifts, Isabelle's Lighting is proud to carry the complete product line of their unique solar powered ornaments.
Sunblossom Solar Gifts is a United States of America producer of unique and patented giftware utilizing light for it to function.
All of our products provide you with magical chiming and movement. You will be delighted and soothed without needing wind or batteries. You will be presented with random, lilting tones drifting through the air with our indoor chimes, or with the delightful waving of a flower in a SoulMate's clasped hands. Perfect for your home or office.
How do they work?
Very simply, all our items are “light activated”. Strong direct sunlight through a window will cause active chiming and spinning. Less light slows them down. Even low evening lamplight will cause occassional activity. With that in mind, their play can be modified by turning the solar cell away from, or toward the light source. Any type of light will do. If low light or no strong outdoor light is available, we suggest displaying under a table lamp with any type of light equalling a 100 watt incandescent bulb. For night time rest, the chime will not work. No light, no chiming! If silencing chiming is desired, simply remove the striker.
How do you replace the batteries?
Green is in! You can stop looking; there are no batteries to throw away or replace. Our products don’t require batteries, electricity, or wind to function. Sunblossom’s “Green” initiative has been a part of the companiy’s philosophy from the start. We are winners of several Michigan awards for not only our “Green” products, but our recycling efforts which include “rescuing” boxes and packing materials from local businesses and landfills. By purchasing Sunblossom Solar Gifts’ products, not only is pleasure derived, but a partnership is created with our earth-friendly practices!
Where are the chimes made?
All designs are ours and assembled in Manchester, Michigan, USA. The owner, Bonnie Greenwald, is also an artist. She designs the products, going through several steps of fine tuning and locating suppliers for the raw components. Sunblossom creates “in house” whenever possible (i.e. casting certain resin parts from molds). Other parts like stands are out-sourced, although the owner designs them as well. In some cases, “cottage industry” is used. Sunblossom is proud to provide some jobs to local charities also, like Eisenhower Center and Goodwill Industries. The electronic components (the technology that makes our products function), are not produced anywhere in the USA. So Sunblossom Solar Gifts products do not have 100% USA made components.
Regardless of the sources, all components are brought into our Manchester location. Then our amazing group of “Chime Chicks”, assemble, box, and ship to our customers.
