Christmas Tree Status

Written By: Gary on December 4, 2005 4 Comments

So the nine foot trees are sparse around here and I had to give up on one with colored lights, all I could find were white lights. So I’m thinking I’m definitely not going to find a colored light one on sale after. I decided the Martha Stewart one from K-mart really was the nicest one (it’s a little skinny but that’s part of when I like it). Here’s the problem, no one has them in stock. I’ve check a half-dozen and friend’s have checked a few others for me. So here craziest part: They’re on sale today (28% off) but no one has them! So I check the first store I checked and they’ve got them marked on-sale but have none (at least mark them out of stock!). And the manager remembers that one of the stores got two in, but can’t remember which one (how helpful is that?!?).

So I get the phones numbers of a bunch of stores from them (including a few I hadn’t checked) and start calling. No one has them. Kelly calls me and tells me they have one at the store by her (that’s funny, they told me they were out when I called). She’s calling from Liz’s and they hop in the mini-van and pick it up and deliver it to me! Now that’s service!

I’ll put it up later and see if I’m happy enough to not replace the 800 bulbs with multi-colored lights. Once I put my colorful ornaments on, maybe it’ll be okay. Or at least okay enough…

    You can never have too many fairy lights. Just string a couple of coloured sets over the top :)

    My tree has all PINK lights, and pink tinsel garlands, and most of the ornaments are pink… it’s very ME. :-)

    Free Christmas Tree – Looking for a Good Home

    If there is someone who needs* a Christmas tree I have an artificial 7.5 foot Martha Stewart tree. It’s only two or three years old and in great shape. It’s just a pain to assemble so I bought a three piece pre-lit tree this year. All you have to do…

    So it’s the sixth year I’ve had this tree, I never would have guessed it had been that long! This year I’ve got a short length of a strand acting up on me so I just added a strip of 35 lights to light up that section.

    BUT every year i really really miss my colored lights. I guess I should keep my eyes open for one next season when they first come out and see if I can find a tall one with colored lights (and be willing to pay the price for it)…
