Warehouse Sale

We had such a wonderful time at our Spring Warehouse Sale last Saturday! We were happy that so many of you chose to spend a sunny Spring Saturday with us!

A big "Thank You" to all who came out to the Hooked on Ornaments Warehouse to meet former Hallmark artist Joyce Lyle! Joyce was a great addition to our sale - her new line of ornaments (on the web at Angel Works Art) are simply beautiful and she had many stories to tell about the inspirations for her artwork. It's always a treat to meet someone who takes such pride in their work, and has such great talent. If you did not get the chance to meet Joyce, or to have her sign pieces from your Hallmark collection, be sure to join us at our Fall sale, when she & her husband Tom will be joining us again!

We were excited to have the club from Springfield, MO join us on Saturday - we had Hallmark ornament collectors from near & far. Frank Williams & Andrea Doubet were so kind as to drive down from Iowa to share their Hallmark knowledge & enthusiasm with us.

Lee Schooler & Dean Oehlert had quite a display set up from their vast Hallmark collection at the "Hallmark Museum" that is their home. Lee & Dean are a fun addition to our sale, and always bring items with them that are rare and fun.

Carol Adams, Mary King, and Dianne Burnett were our lucky door prize winners...they took home a basket of Hallmark Birdsong birds, a Miniature Ornament basket & display, and a 2005 Merry Old Toymaker!
