If you bought something THIS YEAR and you want to share. Post a few pictures of your goodies here.
I just bought a six foot pre-lit tree. Here's a picture of the tree and the box. I just pulled it out of the box and shaped it's branches. (In the store, it didn't look so hot.) But after a bit of manipulation, it turned out a lot better than the floor model.
First... The daytime shot, the nighttime shot and last, the mirrored star that hangs right above the top branch. Mostly, because the tree toppers today are so heavy, the flimsy top branch couldn't hold anything up with any more density than paper. The star hangs on monofilament fishing line. It's nearly undetectable.
I bought two packs of tinsel strands, which I like better than garland and two cylinders of 48 ornaments (in various colors.) All were at Big Lots. If you go check, it's tree H7-multi-colored lights, they do have an all white lights version, but they were sold out. (I think that the clear/white lighted tree's number, was either H6 or H8 ) but this one was $26. AND the last one boxed on the shelf. Not bad, but not the greatest thing since cordial cherries.
