Shop-Local Gift Guide (Part 4)

If you’re late to this particular party, the point of the Shop-Local Gift Guide is to remind you that Tribeca is still a fantastic place to shop. I’ve included items that caught my eye, but I wasn’t price-sensitive, so please don’t comment about how expensive something is or I’ll delete your comment.

  1. A warning to all to not buy a Christmas tree from the lot on Greenwich St near Chambers (Soho Trees) I picked out a tree this morning and arranged delivery with the guy and that I what I was to pay when it was delivered. No one showed up for 3 hours so I called the main office who straightened it all out (the new tree showed up 2 hours later) After the guys set the tree up they told me it was $445!!!! double what I was originally told. I explained that was double what I was told by the guy in the lot- they said that was ‘the night guy who didn’t know how things worked’ and that this was how much *this tree cost. The only option they had for me not paying $445 was for them to take the tree down and take it back and to find me a tree that was only $225 and then arrange another delivery time. I was already late for my train and since I was already 5 hours into it was these guys I paid the ridiculous amount ONLY IN TRIBECA! I KNOW!…I am obviously an IDIOT for paying this much for a tree but I felt stuck. I can only share this experience and recommend that your readers not go to this lot for their tree..or at least get it in writing the agreed upon amount before delivery.

  2. good to know Julie- I’ll go to the tree guy on Leonard instead.

    • Their prices are indeed painful. We’d like to support an independent vendor, but their prices are so high that we went with a tree from Whole Foods once again this year. Sorry to hear about your experience, Julie – may you fully enjoy that tree!
