Your also paying for the selection. Could you imagine what it's like having 1000 bulbs in 10 dif. colors in just one style then multiply that by as many styles as Art at Comet has and then taking orders of 2 of this style and color and 5 of that color and style etc. Then coming up with new styles like Comets 6.3v, 7 led strips and dealing with all the crap that goes along with that. Doing all that with a company half way around the world so you have to be up at 3 or 4am to do business with them during their business hours. The long distance phone bills would kill ya and your email in box would be over flowing. That's not to mention all the business trips to China. Drive me crazy it would.
