I am looking for outdoor string lights to put on my patio. I have looked at Target, Wayfair, Hayneedle but cant find any. I am particulary looking for outdoor battery or electric but with a timer. It cant be solar as no sun shines directly on my patio. Thanks.

 

I did find one at Target but it comes in a pack of 2 but I need at least 10...it looks so much beautiful.

You could try Lowes, Home Depot, and Ace Hardware. Good luck. Sounds like it would be a nice addition to a patio.

I'm surprised you can't find what you need, I see them everywhere.

You must be looking for something unique

 

If you can't find an electric string with a timer, you can buy a separate timer, they only cost $5

Timer suggestion is your answer.  As to find something unique - Google websites for.............  exterior patio lights - or outdoor party lights - or electric hanging decorative lamps.  Front porch I have a floor standing fixture  with huge white globe and additional timer turns it on  off at times I set the clock (for).

You'll be amazed at the products available if you Google the right search words.  Good Luck

I found LED Edison string lights at Costco last year in the spring. I have seen them recently there. I used a smart plug and extension cord to make them work on my electricity challenged patio.

We use timers on our outside Christmas lights, we don't have to remember to turn them off & on.   Hope you find something you love.

near Seattle: just seeing lights coming into stock: Target, Fred Meyer/Kroger, Michael's, etc. 

 

I used to use a timer, now use adaptor to porch light with extension cord and can flip on/off at will from inside when I turn on porch light. 

 

I keep up and use year round. bought an extra set as a backup.
