    Comments about SOLAR LIGHT GARDEN STAKE - FLOWER GLOBES:

    I bought two of these for myself with a gift certificate. I placed them outside the front entrance of my home. They work great, light up automatically, and last all night.

    The two small issues I have involve the material used. The stakes are made of cheap plastic. If you have small children, they could break them easily. Also, the buttons for the solar panels are pretty lousy - it was hard to tell if I had them pushed in or not.

    Overall, I like these stakes and would buy more!

      Comments about SOLAR LIGHT GARDEN STAKE - FLOWER GLOBES:

      This product is beautiful and I have received compliments from people who have seen them in my garden. However I was most impressed with the company's customer service. As I was installing 1 stake with the globe on top, the stake bent and the globe fell off and smashed on my walkway. I contacted the company and with minimum fuss they sent me a replacement at no charge. I will definitely buy products from them in the future.

        This was a replacement for the original purchased in Nov. 2013. Sometime around March 2014 a strong storm came through and broke the globe, and you guys went above and beyond to replace it for free. Again thank you very much. My Mom loves it and I got her another one for Mother's Day. Now she has two to enjoy. Uncommongoods is an outstanding company. Thanks!
