Xmas decorations geneva?

Want to buy some proper (i.e not those tiny indoor ones) lights for a xmas tree in the garden? Does anyone know where these may be found, preferably solar powered if poss!

thanks

Re: Xmas decorations geneva?

Manor, Coop bricolage, Jumbo, Hornbach etc all do external lights but I have to say, I've only ever seen the small ones and never solar powered. You might also try Schilliger which is a big garden centre and which is big on Xmas trees, lights and other decorations. In my opinion the best around for that kind of stuff.

Re: Xmas decorations geneva?

am I thinking of the wrong place.. ok I know Jumbo-Carrefour... but what I was referring to is/was the shop next to the cheap furniture place ( gawd, I am useless with names today ) and a couple of used car places.. side street Meyrin ( is it maybe a Migro - Brico )
