Sunlan is a large and complex store specializing in light bulbs and  fixture components. Customers can buy from a vast selection of bulbs, build custom fixtures, or repair an heirloom fixture. There are only a few of these stores in the U.S. My customers return because of my ability to solve their problems and give viable solutions. I've had loyal customers for over 30 years.

Sunlan has a fascinating collection including a display showcasing the differences of Kelvins between bulbs. You can't go by labels alone, "soft-light" or "daylight" do not have a defined industry wide definition.  It's important to see the light. If you need lightbulbs for home, business or commercial, we have them at Sunlan. It's a great gift shop, too. Enlighten your holidays, birthdays, or gifts for yourself and give light. There is no right or wrong in lighting.  My staff and I can help steer you to what you want or need. Our shelves are loaded with interesting bulbs, from antique ones you won't find anywhere else, to disco, plasma, and colored bulbs. We carry Christmas lights year-round.
