Last year, right after we moved in, we put up my parent’s tree in the bay window. It was magical and helped our sparsely furnished new home feel a little bit more homey for the holidays. Right after Christmas, I scoured Craigslist for a 7+ foot tall tree for the bay window for this year. Our ceilings are 9 feet, so the area can handle a substantial tree.
We bought a lovely tree from a guy off Craigslist for just $30 that we estimate would retail for over $100. It’s not pre-lit, but we actually prefer that because if part of the lights we can easily replace them for $5, not have to replace the entire tree or go through hundreds of bulbs to find the culprit. Ain’t nobody got time for that.
