Selling dried wood branches to decorate Christmas for 2 years, Ms. Thuy Nguyen (Dong Da, Hanoi) said last year she sold hundreds of bundles of firewood with accessories. “A lot of customers have never made pine trees from dry firewood, never decorated themselves, so they don’t know what to buy, so I prepare them in sets for customers to buy,” Thuy shared.

The decoration set includes 6 dried firewood branches, ropes, decorative lights and 20 decorative accessories priced at only VND 99,000. With this set, she said that customers have enough accessories to just decorate. But anyone who wants to buy must order in advance, about 10 days to have the goods.
