  •  Yep. Saw them yesterday at the hardware store... (6+ / 0-)
    The only thing we couldn't convert were the "candle" lights in our ceiling fans. I believe that they make LEDs compatible with the smaller base now, but they didn't back then.
    ...when I picked up the two bulbs I was going to ry out. They'll probably outlast our time in this house!

      Though we do have a stash of conventional bulbs in our drawer that we make our way through first.

      •  Love to know what brand of LED-specific... (6+ / 0-)

        ...fixture you bought, and where. We have a new house we will need to install lighting into.

        Oh, and the hardware store was an Ace.

          I was really satisfied with their stuff and service. For instance, when one of the glass parts of the pendant was broken by my nephew they arranged sale and shipment of a replacement even though, at the time, they didn't sell it separately.

          That being said, the list of manufacturers has expanded greatly in the intervening years, so I'm sure there are other great companies to buy from now additionally!
