2012 Hallmark Ornament Premiere

The weather around the US has been insanely hot over the past week or so making it even harder to believe that the 2012 Hallmark Keepsake Ornament Premiere is right around the corner. As a Hallmark collector Ornament Premiere is one of the dates always marked on my calendar. It is so exciting each year when the new Keepsake ornaments are revealed, first in the Dream Book and then hands on at the Ornament Premiere. If you ever have the chance as a member of a local club to help your retailer open the wholesale boxes to stock the display for Premiere – jump at the chance. That is one of my favorite collecting/local club memories. It was like was like Christmas morning and each wholesale box was another gift to be opened and enjoyed. You open up the plain wholesale boxes to pull out the colorful Keepsake box and then open that box to ooh and ah over each and every ornament. It might have taken us a little longer to get the display completed and stocked; but it was an amazing time for us as collectors.

There are a number of Limited Quantity ornaments that will be available at your local Hallmark Gold Crown Stores during the July 14 – 15 Hallmark Ornament Premiere. These ornaments are Special Editions available in limited quantities and tend to sell out quickly as most stores historically only receive a handful.

How many stores do you visit during Hallmark Ornament Premiere? Which of the Limited Quanitity ornaments are you hoping to bring home?
