When it comes to Christmas trees...some of us like the real thing, some of us like artificial--and then there is a whole class of vintage Christmas people who just love the old aluminum trees--especially the variety known as the POM-POM; click on the photo to see Rita's tree in all its vintage glory.
For those who don't know, aluminum trees were popular from the late 1950's to the mid-1960's. Originals can fetch high prices today; want more aluminum Christmas trees? Go here http://bit.ly/1NZug5x
