MCM Home Improvement: Christmas Trees

By Sablemable aka Jan


If you don’t have your vintage aluminum Christmas tree yet, then what are you waiting for?

I found several reasonably priced trees on Ebay (www.ebay.com) , which is where I bought mine two years ago.  Some may say that they look skimpy, but believe me, once it is decorated, it is beautiful!

Let’s take a look!


From seller gabby765, this 4 foot tree goes for $60.00



Seller pq51 is selling another 4 foot tree for $64.85.



Here’s a 6-1/2 foot tree for sale from jillphyl1 for $70.00.



Seller sumthing_old_sumthing_new has a 4 foot tree for sale for $55.00.



You’ll need a color wheel to give your tree glitter and glamour.  There are vintage wheels offered on Ebay, but, I took the safe road and bought a new one.  Amazon (www.amazon.com) has one for $49.99.



I’d like to see photos of your vintage or vintage inspired Christmas trees.  Send them in and I’ll post them right before Christmas.

    My gra has the color wheel on a shelf in her bedroom. I didn’t know what it was for years. It was very neat and I don’t know why I never asked what it was. Maybe I liked the mystery?

    Oooh, I like that these are smaller ones (I have a 4 foot pink tree that I use now – put it up on a plant stand and voila! You have a tree that small dogs and babies cannot get at, LOL). I am definitely going to have to get one of these soon!
