    Dear Brendan bonner

    I’m very glad that your visiting on my site, and ask me for a help.

    I have saw the pictures in the trekearth, I think you need 8 very traditional Chinese red round lanterns, but I don’t kown your country and where are you?

    If you only need the traditional’s Chinese red round lanterns, you have no reason buy them outside your country, it is very easy to make and very easy can find these lanterns’ wholesaler who is in your country from the internet, and they are very cheap. If you buy them from other country, or special tailor-made it will be more expensive.

    I hope it can help you, and I have gave you a reply to your e-mail. :-)
