Green for Christmas

I blogged about this last year, but it’s so fun & cheap that I want to remind everyone about it. Friday night I rounded up my main squeeze and a couple of grumpy family membersfor the annual trek downtown to get a christmas tree at the auction. We ended up with an 8 footer for twenty eight bucks. Can’t beat that! It’s also a great place to score lots of pine greens to decorate the house with because they cut the branches off the trees and pile them up, free for the taking. I also got mistletoe for lots of kissing this year. By the time we left, all the grinches were smiling and we actually got into a little festive holiday mood!
The auction starts around five pm and goes til around 9:30ish. If you’re patient, you can get a great tree for the right price. It’s at Alameda and College, just past the train station and Chinatown area.

  1. yeah, but not with all the fun and excitement of bidding…besides the $22 ones at home depot are not as big! I wanted an 8 footer!

  2. Now–even though the LATimes blew the cover off United Melon–the auction is the place. This would be a great place to videoblog.
