Where can I find a rope light spiral tree?
For the past several months I have been looking for a rope light spiral tree. As I'm sure most of you know, they were EXTREMELY popular in the U.S. not so long ago. I lost mine in a blizzard several years ago (I should've taken them down- silly me!), but I had no idea they would be so hard to find, even now, when most people start purchasing Christmas decor for the season. Virtually all the spiral trees I have found on the market right now are of the inferior plastic frame with individual bulbs type, as sold by Sears, Walmart, Home Depot etc. I've tried them before and they simple don't last more than a season or two. I have found the rope light kind on many UK and Australian sites, apparently they are very popular in those countries, but the only American retailer I've found who sells them, AmericanSale, is selling them at the gouging price of $100 for 6', not including shipping!!
So if anyone knows where I can get them at a reasonable price I'd appreciate it. If you or anyone you know has one in good condition but doesn't use it, I'd love to buy it from you. I am looking for anything between 5 and 7 feet, single or double helix, led or not doesn't really matter. I am also looking for any color except clear/white. What I would love to find would be a double helix with one string red and one green, similar to this one from a British retailer:
but I'd also be happy to have one of any solid color or multi color combination.
Thanks for your help!
