Despite my efforts to call every Superstore from St. Stephen to Moncton, apparently they had trees they weren't aware of. My mother was out shopping this week, happened to see the colored trees, and went digging. At the very back of the shelf was the last purple tree, so she bought it for me. YAY! So I now have a purple tree for decorating this year. It is, of course, not as nice as the picture looks, but I like it nonetheless.
Now to dig out my purple lights and decide which small ornaments I can hang on it.
