  1. Mel, thank you for the info. The local person wants $100. Ebay is in the $100-150 range, so it's a fair price (especially with what we all spend annually on Christmas). Will be very cool to have something from my father's era (born in 1947).
  2. Thank you for the replies. Any idea on the value? The seller wants $100. My father had the same one growing up, so I might just have to pay.
  3. The issue with those is that you have to build more vertical supports to allow the lights to have the rounded "tree" look. Last year we used bamboo stakes from our plant nursery and they came out fine, but it definitely becomes more of a DIY project.
  4. Any ideas on this one? If I am correct it is about 30" long and meant to hang on a wall. I found him locally.
  5. Looking to add a rotating/motorized ice rink this year. Has anyone created one? Would plywood be necessary, or would a quality coroplast base support a few coro skaters?
  6. Bill, any updates?
  7. Are these sealed bulbs or replaceable?
  8. hotrod, do you happen to have the comparison for your champagne bulbs? I don't know if those would look like what I am looking for. We purchased a box of your warm white faceted and they aren't bright enough for what we need.
  9. I agree. In my opinion most Christmas enthusiasts would rather see items put to good use, rather than getting a few extra bucks from strangers.
  10. Free as pictured. Got it from a neighbor, and it won't be used in our setup. I am not familiar with inflatables. Everything works-no tears. Snow is sticking to the clear section but can be flicked off. Snowman inside.
  11. Time to replace the fragile and power hungry incans...looking for recommendations on a retrofit that has as close to the classic look as possible. Faceted won't work, as they are not bright enough.
  12. I did a lot of research and ended up exclusively purchasing Holiday Light Express LED's. The combination of quality and warranty is hard to beat. As for RGB, as hotrod says, that is a totally different animal. You really have to map out your display and know your stuff.
  13. We are looking to create a few cutouts for 2017. Here in South Florida the weather is not much of a problem (outside of humidity). Many people around town (myself included) have wood cutouts, but I would like to get away from that and try foam or coro. What mm coro does everyone use? Do you have any problems with the coro folding or bending? The 10mm from Home Depot gets pricey very quickly. One of the great displays around me uses 2" foam. He paints it with acrylic and then applies the glitter. He does have to bring the cutouts in every night so they sun does not get to them.
  14. Diamondkilo, great looking home! Are those LED C9's lining the house? If so, where did you get them from?
  15. Yes. When I spoke to a gentleman on the phone he said he did not think you guys carried them any longer.
