  • About my display
    Lighting it up since 2000!

    2006: 12,000 lights-static display. My first year back from the divorce hiatus and the loss of about 20,000 lights. Rotten ex-husband threw out my blowmold Santa/Sleigh & reindeer. :-P

    2007: Bought CaptainRobRats lights, and had 40,000 this year, plus lighted up a "Peace On Earth" wireframe from Lori's. Made the local Tacky Tour (40K light minimum) for the first time since the hiatus.

    2008: Shooting for 50,000 this year-all static. Still searching for my blowmold. Added about 1000 LEDs, too. New "Santa's Landing Strip" planned in the driveway using hardware cloth & ropelight.
  1. Sorry, David, but at this time everything is already gone or spoken for!
  2. Bill, That would be just awesome! We really throw down with the food when we do setup, you would be most welcome-especially since I can't get on a ladder anymore! And what a generous offer-especially with you having to get done super-early for HGTV...are you going to have to take up all your ground displays to mow, too? Ouch... Hugs,
  3. Thanks to all of you, most of it is sold, except for the lights themselves, and Snoop & Crystal are going to get the rest. There is good news, though-I got to keep some of my stuff-my new rental is wired for lights (HOORAY!) and my friends are going to help me set SOME stuff up this year, so Christmas will go on, just reduced-quite a bit, but the show will go on! Bless you all for you kind thoughts, prayers, words and deeds!
  4. Due to things moving more quickly than I could have expected, I need to sell as much of this as i can locally by this weekend, so if you are in Virginia or are close, I'm having an open house/estate/yard sale on Saturday and Sunday this weekend at 2017 Ginter Street, Henrico, VA 23228. Send me a PM if you want to call and make sure we have anything left. Sorry to the out-of-towners, but the bank is closing in and I can't physically ship this stuff as I had originally planned-I fell again this week and have been in bed for the last day or so. Most of what I have are mini-lights. c9's and blowmo
  5. Kristal, Just want to wish you the best and that I'll put you in my prayers. I can only imagine how hard it must be selling your Christmas display . . . I became disabled in 2002 and I've thought my display was one of my saving graces. Another reason I should feel blessed. Cindy

  6. Thank you all so VERY much!! Due to the literal flood of emails and PM's, I'll be posting the full inventory here. I have a couple friends who are supposed to be getting everything down from the attic today, and it will take a few days to go through everything and get accurate counts and pictures. *grin* I have 10' ceilings, a hatch with no stairs and a broken back, so I need some help getting all that stuff down! I never expected to get such a huge response-I was afraid due to the literal HUGE amount of stuff that no one would be interested. It's killing me to sell Christmas, but I f
  7. Thanks, Mike & AI I have a friend coming this weekend who is going to empty the attic for me so I can get some pics and counts, I'll post everything when I get the lists completed. Thank you all for being so supportive-it's so hard for me to sell my Christmas.
  8. Thanks, Bill-it's been a really tough decision, and a really stressful past year. I kinda feel like I'm losing my Christmas, but I'll always have Christmas in my heart. Bless you for your prayers!
  9. Please check this thread: http://forums.planetchristmas.com/showthread.php?p=361792#post361792 Unfortunately, I have to sell out due to personal circumstances. Take a look to see if there's anything you may be interested in! Thanks,
  10. Due to health circumstances, I'm finding myself forced to sell my entire setup in order to pay bills, and i just want to put some feelers out to see if there is any interest. If there is, I can get more of a complete count of what I have-most if it is stored in my attic and inaccessible without outside assistance. Email me with your addy of interested and I can send some pics of my setup so you have some idea of what's included. I'm looking to sell it all-inclusive if possible, as I may be losing my home due to disability and job-loss. Not looking for sympathy, just want to try to make enough
  11. Bill & Roger, You guys are killing me! I can't go, but I saved up some money just in case, and I'm going to miss the molds...AND I need multifunctions and blue icicles! ...sigh... Next year. I'm dreaming of Christmas-only 5 months until setup!
  12. I have been putting off posting because I was unsure if I would be able to attend, and I have to miss it again this year. My back/hip injury is not cooperating, and my physical therapist told me that I would be making a painful mistake if I drove/sat/stood for an extended period. Please take lots of pictures! I'll be thinking of all of you on Saturday!
  13. I do the same thing. I cleaned my Lowes out of GE red LED minis this morning-red was all they had left. I'm going downtown in a bit to see what the Lowes there has, and I'll probably get luckier.
  14. Walmart in our area never lowers their prices on lights until the week after Christmas. I stopped by this morning, and their minis are still $2.39/box. So I went on over to Lowes and got a case of red LED minis for $4/box, 20 lighted candycanes for $1.30 each, and a bunch of other stuff. They still have loads of incandescent minis left. You may want to travel a bit to check out some more Lowes stores-there are 4 more in our area that are within an hours' drive, but I don't know if any more are near you! My Lowes still had all of the colors left, but no whites.
  15. Wow.Wow.Wow.Wow.Wow.Wow.Wow.Wow.Wow.Wow.Wow. Wow.Wow.Wow.Wow.Wow.Wow.Wow.Wow.Wow.Wow.Wow. Wow.Wow.Wow.Wow.Wow.Wow.Wow.Wow.Wow.Wow.Wow. WOW! Now I'm ruined for life...now that I'll know all of the blowmolds that I DON'T have.
