I am about to list about 45 of these Ornaments and I am listing them as USED. I want to be clear, that many of them are NIB and some of them have been used and put back in their boxes still looking new. A very few have snow on them and I don't know if it was there in the beginning or from being used on a tree.
Christmas trees first appeared in America in the 1700s. Decorated trees were brought to America by Hessians – German mercenary soldiers fighting in the Revolutionary War – but didn’t become widely popular until people saw the ornaments brought to America by families emigrating from Germany and England in the 1840s.
In 1973, Hallmark introduced a small line of six glass ball ornaments and 12 yarn figures as the first collection of Hallmark Keepsake Ornaments. The longest-running current ornament series is Frosty Friends, now in its 32nd year. Since the line’s inception, Hallmark has introduced more than 3,000 Keepsake Ornaments and more than 100 ornament series.
More than 500 local chapters of the national Hallmark Keepsake Ornament Club are active in the United States and Canada.
If you are a dealer or collector, I will of course, Combine shipping and if you are going to purchase more than 6 of these Hallmark-Keepsake items, I will set up a special "Buy It Now" for you and work out a Discounted Price.
I purchased these from an Estate and will be glad to pass on the savings.
E-mail me in advance, if you want to take advantage of this.
