Aluminum Trees

Leda Hartman pays a visit to an unusual Christmas museum in Brevard, North Carolina, where there is a collection of aluminum Christmas trees. Stephan Paul Jackson is the museums curator. He began collecting the trees about ten years ago. Generally they are relics of the 1960's and 70's. The trees are festooned with some very different and some might say tacky ornaments. One tree is decorated with Jim and Tammy Faye Baker ornaments, while another has copper toilet floats and toilet scrub brushes hanging from its branches.
