Over at HolidayCoro.com, I found that they hold ‘presale’ sales. I found their prices to be very competitive and so I placed an order for what I needed to update my house to pixels this coming year. Some of the products that I purchased were Pixel Rectangle Modules for updating my advent wreath, Pixel Strawberry C9 Bulbs for my roof line (both floors), 30/30 strip to make a matrix (will probably end up being 30×15), various Nodes to replace lights in words (these were almost cheaper than the dumb strings of LED lights I purchased from Home Depot), and various pixel strips. I also purchased an AlphaPix 4 controller as I figured I could do power injection throughout the display and as my house is pretty condensed (32ft long by maybe a little higher), I figured this would reach many areas of my display without even needing null nodes.

After completing this rather large order, I soon discovered HolidayCoro’s stuff box sales and other clearance items. I have placed 3 rather small orders including 2 stuff box’s and some materials to make a mega tree. The first stuff box I have already received and included 31 30/10 pixel strips with various issues. These strips would not work for a 16′ mega tree, but for the projects I plan (smaller trees, various designs, etc), these will work great. I also ordered one of their QuickTree toppers and 30 PixNode strips that were on clearance. The QuickTree topper I honestly do not know what is wrong with it. The PixNode strips were cut with small pieces of plastic attached to them still. All I did was sand off these (you can see them all over my work bench in the picture below). This was a great bargain for these products. The second stuff box I ordered was rather cheap and includes various DMX controllers, pixels, power supplies and cable. I will post a picture of this once I receive this box of ‘stuff’.
