I’ve had a 47 year obsession with Hallmark. Ask anyone who know me where I Shop and they’ll tell you Hallmark. At first it was cards, and gift wrap, but then I discovered keepsake ornaments. I was teaching above the Arctic Circle in an isolated Eskimo village for 24 years. I was sent to Anchorage for medical care midway through those years. Once I got out of the hospital I made a trip to Hallmark before flying back to the village. There I saw the first ever Frost and Friends. I bought 7 as Christmas gifts for friends and gave them all away. 😬Silly me! That summer while in the lower 48 states I discovered Hallmark series ornaments when I saw number 2 in July. I of course bought several,!however this time I saved one for myself. And the collecting began. I’ve been known to give away clothes to make room in my closet for my ornaments. I couldn’t even tell you the number of series I have. This year when I take them out I’m going to count them. I have never responded to this type of thing before. I’m taking the time for this because once I discovered the depth of items at Hallmark it’s my main place to shop. Quality, excellence, and variety of gifts, staff kindness and friendship, my excitement each year for the ornament’s reveal, and of course the cards and gift wrap keep me coming back!!
