I have been selling on eBay for many years but due to fee increases and policy changes, I began a search for other internet options as well. I am very happy to have found eCrater! I have been meeting some great people here.
The first Hallmark ornament I purchased was the 1991 Puppy Love. I started this collection for my son and each year when I purchased his addition to the series, I found many others that I just HAD to have! I started a new series for each of my children as they came along and as you probably guessed, I GOT HOOKED! Since then, I have started collecting several series and special occasion ornaments! My friends and family know that I'm always keeping a look-out so they give me lists of what they need and what they can spend and then I get to do the shopping! Sometimes I have to buy a box full or "lot" of ornaments just to get the one I need. That's one way I end up with extras and duplicates.
Although many of these ornaments have been purchased new and have never been used, others have been found in places such as; thrift stores, estate sales, yard sales and auctions. Each ornament has been inspected and is in excellent condition unless a flaw is noted in the item description. People have different opinions about box condition but the following is how mine are rated: VGB: VERY GOOD box - like new w/minimal shelf wear; GB: GOOD box - may have small rub marks or small/faint creases; FB: FAIR box - may have rub marks, creases or dents; PB: POOR box - may have heavy creases, rips or crush marks; NB: NO box.
At times, I do have ornaments that I have not had a chance to list. If you don't see the one you're looking for here, feel free to ask and I'll be happy to check my inventory.
