Hallmark Keepsakes at Comic-Con and Barbie Conventions

  July is certainly a very busy month for Hallmark collectors this year. We have the Hallmark Keepsake Ornament Premiere next weekend, July 14-15. Most collectors have a local Hallmark Gold Crown store and so the event is easy to attend for most of us. This gives most collectors at least the opportunity to purchase the Limited Quantity Keepsake Ornament Premiere ornaments for this year.

There are two other events that are quite a bit harder to attend in July; both offer Special Edition Hallmark Keepsake ornaments that are historically quite sought after.

The San Diego Comic-Con International is held July 11 - 15, 2012. There will be three exclusive items available for purchase at the event. Hallmark artist, Robert Chad, will be attending the event. Hallmark Keepsakes will also reveal some of the 2013 ornaments. Hallmark Keepsakes will also be attending the New York Comic-Con later this year (Oct 11 - 15, 2012).

The event exclusives that will be offered at each event are:

Batman: A Human Hero
(Limited Quantity: 750 piece)

Cylon Centurion Repaint
(Limited Quantity: 750 pieces)

Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back
4-Lom and Zuckuss

(Limited Quantity: 1000 pieces)

July 11-14 is the annual National Barbie Doll Collectors Convention held in Garden Grove, CA. This will be the fourth and final year that Hallmark attends this event. Hallmark Keepsakes will offer:

Barbie: Shoe-sational
