The house is definitely more for looking at than eating.

  1. Purchased a huntington window candle ID# 54515 17.
    The product doesn’t light but we’re not sure which sign is off and on. There is an o and -. Which is on and off?

  2. The battery operated LED string lights are supposed to run 4 hours on, then turn off for 20 hours. I think they’re set to something less than a 24 hour cycle, though, because they go on earlier every day!
    Still, it’s a nice way to light up my old wreath!

  3. Bought the 2 pc Spiral Tree set, 3 ft & 4 ft. Well, tried to assemble them & both center metal rods are the same length. So the 3′ tree is over a foot too short stretched out ,& the 4′ tree is over a foot too long! Can’t use either one. Aldi won’t take back because I lost the receipt. Piece of junk!

  4. Our local Aldi store ran out of the Huntington Home Holiday LED
    String lights w/ timer- different colors. How can I order more of
    These on line? Let me know – thanks. Jw.

    • You can’t order these items online. Aldi stocks a limited amount of its Special Buy items in stores, and unfortunately when they’re gone they’re gone. There’s always next holiday season, though.
