Christmas Tree Hunt

Everything that doesn't fit anywhere else!

Postby mnp13 » November 30th, 2009, 4:50 pm

So....

When I was at my parent's house we went to a little store near their house and saw these great fake "trees." I haven't decorated for Christmas in years because between the dogs and the cats it's just a recipe for a lot of broken decorations.

I loved these trees, but they aren't big enough for our house - they would definitely get swallowed up by 10 foot ceilings!

So, all you Google scavenger hunters... I need to find them!

I have these two pictures, and the company they were purchased from is Cafka, Cafko, or something like that (I have no idea what the spelling is)

I have looked and looked with no luck so far...

They make tons of half Christmas trees that hang on the wall, is it just that one specific design you are after?

Most of the ones I've found are 3 or 4 feet tall.

Here's a 7" half-tree which you guys could jerry-rig so it hangs: http://www.treetopia.com/ProductDetails ... e&CartID=0

I love that design, I've found a lot of the half trees, I really like that one because it's so open and I like the space for the ornaments.

I had two of these until my cats knocked them off of my mantle at my old house:

You just need a business tax number?
I might have one you can use, provided you don't use it for anything else.
*cough cough* And you send me a link so I can get a copy too.

Ok, we have access! However, there is a minimum initial order that is rather high.

So, if anyone is interested in getting one, please let me know. My friend is interested in ordering some stuff for her store, but she has a way to go before she hits the order. They are $25 plus shipping. The second one I posted earlier is $140, the third (square base) is $65.

this one is $40.
