AUSTIN -- Just two and a half weeks before Christmas, dozens of people shopped for Christmas trees at the Papa Noel Christmas tree tent on Loop 360 in Northwest Austin.
Tall, short, full or skinny -- each buyer had their own perfect tree in mind.
"I mostly look to make sure it's going to fit in our living room, right in front of the window," said shopper Allison Davidson. "Not too big, not to small...it has to be just right."
"I want it to be big and beautiful," said Christmas tree shopper Amy Sorrel. "Something that's going to show off all our ornaments and just make us happy throughout the season."
Visitors to the Papa Noel tent can catch Santa Clause making a surprise visit at each lot around Austin.
