Now on Display @ the Library

For many people, decorating their home and Christmas trees with ornaments is one of the most enjoyable ways to capture the magic and excitement of the holidays. Ornaments became a major hit in 1880 at F.W. Woolworth of the five and dime fame, which reluctantly stocked his stores with German-made ornaments. By 1890, he was selling $25 million worth of ornaments at nickel and dime prices.

In 1973, Hallmark introduced six glass ball ornaments and 12 yarn figures as the first collection of Hallmark Keepsake Ornaments. When the first line of ornaments was introduced, they were unique in design, year-dated and available only for a limited time, which was new in the world of ornaments. Our lobby display case is celebrating the thirty-five years of Keepsake Hallmark Ornaments. You will see many specific themes of ornaments from trains to football to Disney and more. We even have available for checkout a value guide of Keepsake ornaments for you to explore your collection or revisit your Christmas past. Our collection of Hallmark ornaments will be featured till the end of December.
