  1. Valerie,

    I love your items. Getting a little too high in price lately. Just wanted to request a small bow and floral arrangements for changing seasons that would fit on top of lanterns.

  2. I have bought many of Valerie’s products over the years. This year I bought 2 LANTERNS. I opened one when i got it to see if I liked it. Today, I opened the second one to put out on the deck. It didn’t work, so because it was defected, I thought Valerie or QVC would have me return it for a replacement. I was very disappointed that since it was over the 30 days, they wouldn’t do anything. Very disappointed in their customer service.

  3. Valerie,

    I just read your bio and found it interesting. I have always loved watching you, and have many of your things. I have given my daughters-in-law many of your beautiful holiday items too. Our grandson just started at Wheaton College last week, and I found it interesting that you also attended Wheaton College. His parents are delighted with Colin’s choice to attend Wheaton. He is from Nashville, TN., but has an uncle, aunt, and cousins who live in Glen Ellyn, IL.

  4. Valerie, I purchased the extend a leg for Easter and waiting for the delivery of the snowpeople the elves, and Mr. and Mrs. Claus. I missed out on the gingerbread couple. Are you planning to do them again? I’d love to see pilgrims for Thanksgiving. Maybe next year 🙂

  5. I enjoy watching Valarie. She is so poised, well-spoken, and talented. Her items are always lovely and I have purchased many of them for my daughter and myself. She is an asset to QVC and I will continue to watch whenever she is on.

  6. I very much enjoy watching QVC when Valerie showcases her beautiful designs. My home is filled with many of her items inside and outside. (yard/deck) Her presentations are well polished and her down-to-earth approach is warming, graceful and genuine. It is a pleasure to watch her as she takes such pride in all her merchandise.

    Thank you, Valerie!

  7. I saw a couple of years ago that you had a bear with a present. I was wondering if you were going to bring it back plus do have a catalog?

  8. I enjoy all your lovely items. I am currently searching for your Christmas bobbles. I found your fall ones but not Christmas. I hope you will have them again this Christmas season.

  9. Geraldine Mckiernan

    Valerie, I have watched you on QVC for years and I have purchased many of your Christmas items, especially during the Christmas in July Special. Over the past two years, I have loved your twinkle twig indoor/outdoor trees. I have not been able to purchase them because they are the only plugin option available. I have many outdoor decorations from your collections that are battery-operated and are indoor/outdoor.

    I would really like to see you create these twig trees that are indoor/outdoor, in varying heights, and are BATTERY OPERATED. I really want a 3′, 4′, 5′, and 6′.

    Thanks so much and I look forward to seeing this sometime in the future!!!

  10. I believe several years ago you came out with a bear and angel clock. It played Christmas music along with other songs. I had the bear clock which a door would open and the bear would come out. Do you ever plan on remaking this item? My clock was stolen and I would love to have another one.

  11. Valerie is a beautiful lady. I always watch her when she is on QVC. I have many pieces of her beautiful products. I love her Angels they are so beautiful. Valerie is a joy to watch, she is so elegant. God bless her always!

  12. Hi Valerie, love everything you show on QVC. Love your Facebook page. I am a little sad though. I ordered your bottle brush trees, classic to display with my other many Christmas things I have purchased from you. But they have been in Plainfield, Indiana since Aug. 10. QVC has told me they are probably lost and I won’t get them. So sad. Sue

  13. Hi Valerie, I ordered your classic bottle brush trees during Christmas in July and the got lost. They have been in one place since Aug. 10th. QVC tells me they are sold out. Is there anyway you have 1 left. I love your things and usually go crazy during Christmas in July. Thanks Sue

  14. Valerie, I purchased from QVC your set of 3 illuminated crystal plug-in trees by Valerie a few years ago and can’t find information regarding where to be able to purchase the sizing listed as 2.0 V mini-bulbs. I have searched throughout Phoenix and called lighting stores as well as QVC, and nobody carries the size. It was suggested I use 2.5 V bulbs and it blew the lights. Can you recommend a place to obtain the 2.0 V
    bulbs? It seems a shame to throw them away without first attempting to obtain the replacement bulbs. This product was manufactured in China and that creates concern for obtaining the required size.

    Thank you for any suggestions you may offer, as the two remaining trees are still going but w/o replacement bulbs, they too, will quit working.

  15. Valeria and I went to high school together and you just knew she was going somewhere! Pretty, talented, kind, good student, popular with classmates and teachers……always DOING! If something was happening, she was in the center with a smile on her face. I always admired her from a distance.

  16. It would not surprise me to see Valeri Par Hill shops appearing here and there, perhaps beyond the USA. Valerie is indeed a lovely, highly exceptional individual who has created so many stunning pieces for your home including holiday decor, that one would need to open a gift shop filled with each and every one of her creations. How else could one afford to surround oneself with all these magical pieces♡!!♡?. She reminds me of the famous Thomas Kinkade, Painter of Light, whose numerous galleries are found all over the USA. Like he, she is truly a national treasure.

  17. She is such a loving lady, her products are so beautiful and so stunning, like all her stuff blessings always…Lynette.

  18. Cynthial D Williams

    I enjoy watching Valerie each and every time she appears on QVC. She is the epitome of a beautiful young lady. Her calm, soothing voice makes listening to her a real joy. She always features beautiful products that everyone would enjoy in his/her homes. She is truly an asset to QVC and I always look forward to watching her presentations. I eagerly look forward to enjoying many more years of beautiful Valerie!
