Hallmark Keepsake Ornaments

 

hallmark2013wickedHallmark have become an American tradition since producing their first range of 18 Christmas ornaments in 1973, and in 2013 they celebrate their 40th Anniversary.

Over the years Hallmark has produced a number of ranges incorporating many styles and ideas.

With new ranges appearing and others retiring, and some pieces only being available for one year from the issue date, many of the pieces have become very collectable. There is a growing secondary market with great interest in the early and rarer ornaments.

Current ranges include: Classic American Cars series, NFL, Disney, Peanuts, Harry Potter, Disney Princesses.
