  1. As a seamstress, I feel fortunate to live close to the corporate headquarters of JoAnn Fabrics with the flagship store right next door. I have been in the smaller stores in different parts of the country, and even in a store locally (not the flagship) where it’s easy to see that business is not as brisk. It is always disappointing to see brick and mortar stores closing. The fabric choices at Hobby Lobby are not even close to what we can get at Joann’s. There really are no substitutes. Shopping online for fabric, since you can’t touch it or even see true colors is not a good option either. Very disappointing. The tinsel article was interesting. My daughter-in-law has used tinsel on their fresh trees for many years. We always used it when I was growing up, and I used it with my fresh trees. I didn’t realize it was making a comeback because I didn’t know it was ever gone. Tree prices are outrageous this year. While I use a so-called “permanent tree” now, my son and daughter-in-law got a Frasier fir this year and paid $160+. For something that’s getting tossed in a relatively short time. Standard size. But it’s sporting tinsel and looks beautiful. We always do a white elephant exchange for our annual family day at New Years, so I was interested in the suggestions.

  2. My daughter had goats — and goats LOVE to eat Christmas trees. If you buy a real tree, consider donating to anyone who has goats or call a farm. If you still use tinsel (why?), make sure to remove it all b/c goats can eat most things, but tinsel is not one of them. I actually got my condo neighbors to donate trees and someone came and collected them, so it’s a great thing to do. Our local news actually posted where you could donate trees last year.
