Hangin' With Your Buddies

  I received a couple of calls last week asking about the 2013 Hallmark Keepsake National event, so I thought I would take some time this week to talk about the event and highlight some of the ornaments that will be available.

 August 2-3, 2013 the Hallmark Keepsake Ornament Club will be hosting this year's national event in Kansas City, Missouri. Hangin' With Your Buddies offers Keepsake ornament collectors an opportunity to enjoy two days filled with Hallmark ornaments, Hallmark artists and Keepsake Ornament collecting.

 Friday and Saturday attendees will be busy enjoying lots of fun games (and awesome prizes!), seminars and artist signings. Friday night is the Local Club Dinner event. Both Friday and Saturday evenings will be filled with room hopping and bargains galore. If you love Hallmark collecting, I highly recommend attending, I promise you won't be disappointed.

For all the details - Visit the Hallmark Events site at www.kocevents.com

There are a number of event exclusive items that will be available for purchase at the event....
We do normally have most of the event products available through the website shortly after the event.
You are welcome to add yourself to the waiting list for any of these items, if you would like to receive an email when we add the items into inventory. Just be aware that quantities will be very limited. (Here's a link to the Hooked on Ornaments 2013 Hangin' With Your Buddies Event page.)

Santa's Home Sweet Home is a linen texture bound book board that opens to a self-standing background for the Keepsake Studios' annual event pieces, like Mrs. Claus' Cupboard, Stove and Table. (I can't wait to see what other pieces the artists' have planned to coordinate with this background. Very exciting!
That's all for today!
Hope to see you in August!
