Sheila thought they might have a similar tree at Big Lots so on our way back to the hotel we stopped at the BL and right there inside the door as a lime green tinsel tree for $15, it was kismet. Next issue was how to get it home, too awkward to carry on the plane and I wasn't about to pay $25 to check it, thankfully Sheila was able to ship it home to me.
Well my tree has been displayed in my kitchen window and has had rave reviews for the category of "something out of character" for me. My friend Joan saw the tree and wanted to get one for her grandson's bedroom, his favorite color is lime green....so began the quest and believe me its been a quest.
I have been to over ten stores in our area that at the beginning of the season had lime green trees, there are none left in the area and I even tried buying the display at one store and was turned away. WHO KNEW the hot item of the season would be a lime green tinseled tree.
The moral of the story is shop early and quickly or you could be left with a cart empty of a lime green tinsel tree or a Tickle me Elmo.
