@ERIKAKN- you seem to be in the know in WI. I have an artist project I'm interested in commissioning for my home in WI and I'm at a loss of how to find the right artist. I don't know how to contact you directly, but if you would be so kind, you may contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks!

When I lived in New Orleans, we let the needles falloff the tree, spray painted it white, and then created a Mardi Gras tree decked out with purple, green, and gold ornaments, masks, etc. Another "green" option is to rent a Christmas tree. The service delivers and picks up the tree. After returning the tree, if it continues to thrive under the service's care, the same tree can be delivered to your home for the next Christmas holiday.

In Chicago, most sales require you to show up more than an hour ahead of time. There is usually a sign-in sheet where all the dealers have already placed their names which shows the order of entry. I have arrived at a sale very early and the sheet already lists numerous names. The dealers also sleep in their cars outside of the homes. The numbers are then distributed according to this 'official" list. The author is correct about the behavior of many dealers. Many are rude, pushy, and dishonest (some have the reputation as shoplifters). I stand my ground despite their whining that this is how they make their living.
