Rated 5 out of 5Â by Katmomma 1950's Holiday Gumdrop Tree
My 6 year old granddaughter wanted to have a 'candy' themed birthday party and I remembered my grandmother had a gumdrop tree that we only used during Christmas holidays. I searched for one on the internet and your website was the only place I found it. We are using it for the centerpiece of our candy party, and then will leave it out for the holidays. Love it ~

Rated 2 out of 5Â by bos Not suitable for a Christmas gift!
I sent this to my grandson before Christmas, knowing children need to keep busy before Christmas day. My daughter reported back that he certainly liked receiving the candy and the tree, but just so I knew, it was not a good pre-Christmas gift. The gumdrops were orange, black, and yellow! What the heck is that all about?? Not a Christmas Tree for sure. She thought it would be good as a Halloween gift.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Hopperoo Christmas Tradition - The Gumdrop Tree
This adorable little gumdrop tree was a childhood favorite at Christmas. Every Christmas my mother would bring out the tree after she had purchased gumdrops. It was my responsibility to put the gumdrops on the tree, with the freedom to arrange them in any categorical order I chose. It was always displayed on a side table in our dining room, and it always gave me such pleasure to walk into that room and see that colorful gumdrop tree there. Of course No One was allowed to remove a gumdrop until the 26th of December. It was a family tradition. Now I have that wonderful memory laden gumdrop tree.
This year I decided it was time to pass the tradition on to my sons. I was thrilled to see that gumdrop tree in the Vermont Country store catalog! I purchased them for my sons and wrote them each about the tradition of the gumdrop tree from my childhood. Now they will have that tradition in their homes and be able to pass it on to their children.
Next year I'm already planning to purchase more for my brother's children so they can have a "drop" of one of our family's Christmas traditions. Please keep that product in your catalog. And, thank you for the "free" bag of colorful gumdrops you sent along with each tree. That was a pleasant surprise.
I love shopping in the Vermont Country Store. It is always a trip down memory lane to shop with you. Thank you for all the work that you do in running the Vermont Country Store and allowing so many of us pass on real live family memories and traditions.
P.S. Is it possible to get any of the Barclay skating and skiing figures back in your catalog?

My mom had this tree when we were growing up and she gave it to me. I used it for Christmas with my children growing up. My four grand children now 17 to 26 still look for it at my house for Christmas. All four have asked to have it someday. Finding it on your website, I've ordered 4, (one for each grandchild) for Christmas this year. I'm delighted to find them.

When I was a child, my grandmother had a Gumdrop Christmas Tree as a centerpiece for the Dining Room Table. This reminds me so much of her and even today how I miss her and she has been gone for over 50 years.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Happy Miles Finally found one!
My Mom, Grandma and I each had a gumdrop tree when I was growing up. Eventually, they got lost or broken. I'm so happy to find these trees again and will make sure my children have one, too. Thanks for selling our family's fun Christmas tradition.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by westcoastbestcoast Have already bought two, and may buy more!
We have used our gumdrop tree for a couple of years now and recently purchased one as a gift for my parents. The tree is perfect for displaying colorful gumdrops, and it can be used any time - not just for Christmas! For my grandmother's birthday, we decorated it like an autumn tree - with red, orange, yellow and green gumdrops. The kids loved it, and the grownups couldn't resist either!

I sent this as a thought of a eat um tree, we use to make, ( a long time ago,! ), and in its small way it more than did the job for remembering, the children, called and were so excited putting it together, that I did not know what they said,? but it was a real winner, from you,! and me, for the whole bunch, Thanks, !!!
