    Hi Christmas Elves. Glad to see the forum is still ticking over nicely :)

    I'm looking to get hold of a 7ft flat backed( half) Christmas tree at a budget price.
    I have relocated to a smaller property for this Christmas coming and can't use my 7ft full tree this year,so I am leaning towards a half tree, as I don't really like the pencil ones
    Argos do a 6ft one but not a 7ft one.Balsam Hill do 7ft ones but due to covid,my finances can't stretch for one of them this year :(
    Just wondering if anybody has seen any in stock yet around Dublin, or if you could post here if you do. Cheers!

    Maybe something like this from Amazon

    https://www.amazon.co.uk/Longacres-2-1m-Half-Artificial-Christmas/dp/B001HB61M2/ref=asc_df_B001HB61M2/?tag=googshopuk-21&linkCode=df0&hvadid=388367223092&hvpos=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=9907679538557697735&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=20489&hvtargid=pla-826179308582&psc=1&tag=&ref=&adgrpid=80894625738&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvadid=388367223092&hvpos=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=9907679538557697735&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=20489&hvtargid=pla-826179308582

    You would need to use Parcel Wizard probably but if nothing shows up in Dublin, this might be an option:)

    I heard a man on the radio who sells for Christmas trees for sale in Dublin and the number is 1800 333333 :D He said they’ve been very busy the last few weeks as people are buying they’re trees early this year :)

    My old neighbour has had her tree up since July. I'm not sure if she took it down at all. Only spotted it after lockdown! Must try an get a sneaky pic.

    Are the ones in Woodies a good price? I think when they first brought them out last year a lot of them were half price but then went up to full price as soon as Halloween was over. I could be remembering this incorrectly though.
    I want to buy a new one this year. Will make the trip if they are on offer :)

    If I’m being honest I feel woodies are overpriced for all of their Christmas stock even when it’s on “sale”

    B&Q have their trees out too, only a few different ones though, took a photo, will stick it up when I'm at my pc in the morning.

    Any recommendations on where to shop for one? I need to see it before buying it. Thanks :)

    I recommend home store and more. I’ve had my one now 5 years still as full as always. And reasonable pricing as well.

    Got mine in B&Q about 18 years ago ( half price in Dec). Probably seen better days but still looks good when decorated. It has clear droplets on end of branches which look like melting snow/ ice. You can see a pic of it on tree photo sticky 2 years ago :)

    Looked at the Woodies ones a couple of years ago. Wasn't impressed with them at all. Expensive for what you got. But maybe the trick is to buy them early.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,032 ✭✭✭ Sunrise_Sunset


    I thought the 7ft ones in Woodies last year looked nice. But when I went back to buy one they were back up all full price. It's just not something I would be willing to pay full price for.
    I'm not really close to a Home Store or B&Q. But there's a Woodies a few km away. However, if i'm going to have it for years to come, then I'd like to get the nicest one at the best price :) Might be a bit more willing to travel for it......but there's the current restrictions to consider too.

    https://www.mcds.ie/ in Galway City, Athlone & Loughrea have their Christmas stock in. Their website and online shop are currently being updated, but if you check on their facebook page some tree photos and prices up. Sadly no half trees available :(

    EZ living have 50% off trees this weekend.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,032 ✭✭✭ Sunrise_Sunset


    I was in Woodies today. They have the trees out. The 7ft Wicklow pine that looked good on their website, looked terrible in person. The decent looking ones were 200-300.


  • Moderators, Recreation & Hobbies Moderators Posts: 26,589 Mod ✭✭✭✭ Posy


    I got a lovely 'pop-up' tree in Woodies a few years ago, and it is still lasting well.

    But I find their 'real' trees a bit meh.

    Ah come on, do you really believe furniture shop half price sales.

    They are as genuine as a Tesco own brand half price bottle of plonk

    Tesco fool some people by selling Domaine Arnaud at €16

    Domaine Arnaud is utter muck, but some gullible people think that it's great value at €8 in a "half price" deal.


    Do you REALLY think that some of these trees are worth €800?

    Or that dfs "after event price" is a true price.
