RE: The tariff classification of Christmas decorations from China.

Dear Mr. Keller:

In your letter dated January 10, 2000, and received in this office on February 1, 2000, on behalf of your client Hallmark Cards, you requested a classification ruling.

Sample number 2 is identified as stock number 950DH1116. It is garland that is made of plastic strips wrapped around wire to appear as a garland evergreen branch. The plastic garland measures five feet in length.

The plastic garland and sprigs are each packaged with red textile bows which are intended to be used to decorate them. Your letter of inquiry states that these items will be used in the Hallmark stores for decorations during the Christmas holiday season.

The applicable subheading for the plastic sprigs and the plastic garland with the red textile bows will be 9505.10.2500, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for articles for Christmas festivities and parts and accessories thereof: Christmas ornaments: other, other.
