Thanksgiving is over and we feel it’s officially okay to start Christmas decorating (even though we’ve admittedly had our decorations up for a couple weeks now). If you’re thinking of getting a real tree, here are some spots around town to get one. Some shops donate part or all of the proceeds to local organizations. It’s the best of both worlds.
In the city:
Mount Pleasant: Wayne (one of our associates) and his wife, are selling trees to benefit Mount Pleasant’s Bancroft Elementary PTA. Frasiers and balsams from 3-10 feet – great prices! Pick up in Mt. P. Call Claudia at 202-486-0822.
