I felt like telling her if you think I am going to sit and thread 30 odd balls with a bit of cotton, then you can go and hang yourself next to your enormous metal hooks!!!!
So if anyone round my area knows a place for Xmas decorations who might have these hooks, please let me know!!!
Thanks!
Is there an Iceland near you, possibly they will have them..

Well, I tried Carrefour, Eroski, Iceland, all the local ferreterias, most of the Chinese shops..(Hai no haf this, only big...she then produced a hook similar to a butcher´s hook!.... you put algodon in hol..velly issy....)...

So as I said, next year I am going to approach all the stores and make a deal and supply them all with Christmas tree hooks.... or actually I could do what they do in the USA.. rent a place for a month and sell all the stuff myself!!!
