I got this tree off eBay a few years back so I could have a tiny tree in my room. I love it! It's so versatile; this year we hung regular-sized, plastic ornaments on it, and it still looked fantastic! It sheds a bit, as all trees do. It's a nice size and stores well. The lights have worked year after year and the garlands are beautiful, if not a pain to put on (I leave them on the tree). Definitely recommend to all who can find one!
