The Ideal Christmas Tree - no watering required!

Sally would like to introduce the latest
Black Dog Creation
(and personally, one of my favorites to date!)

The ideal christmas tree!
no watering required
no needles to pick up
decorate as little
or as much as you like

made from salvaged antique wrought iron

the base is an antique wheel rim
(we just happened across this one
no, we do not salvage cars despite the numerous calls we receive asking if we do!)

great for indoors or out
this can be passed down for generations!
cost $875
