Mom and dad liked to methodically apply each piece of tinsel strand by strand. We kids liked to throw them in clumps until things got out of hand. Those more sophisticated blew them from their palms onto the tree (although this could end in a round of silliness too). Anyway you put it, no tree is complete without the original metallic tinsel of our youth. Hard to come by, it's still around, made in Austria by the original manufacturer for the past 100 years. Each strand is approx. 18". The average 5-6 ft. tree takes 6 packages (depending on personal taste), or one package per 1-2 ft. of tree. Sold in sets of 3.

  • Heavier than today's tinsel, "Austrian icicles" hang better than tinsel sold in discount stores
  • Tinsel can be reused perennially
  • Limited quantities available.

Here's the tinsel you decorated the Christmas tree with as a kid.

"I absolutely love this. It is the icing on the cake, as far as Christmas trees are concerned. And unlike the flimsy plastic stuff found in stores, this is the real deal. Please don't ever discontinue it. Or warn me if you do so I can buy up your stock." - Mary, Indianapolis, IN

"I love it; it is heavier than anything you can buy in the other stores. Reminds me of what my family used in the 50s. Not quite as heavy as that, but very close. It makes my tree look like what I remember as a child. - Lorna Spencer, Wilton, ME

"I searched for years for this tinsel... the real deal that makes our tree look fabulous. Reminds me of my childhood... decorating the tree with the tinsel was an art form.
