Hallmark Giftware Arriving in Stores & Ornaments Next Week

Saw some of the new giftware items yesterday!!  The release date was originally July 25th but now hopefully the line will be out in time for the Ornament Premiere next weekend.    The new giftware is really nice and has a very classy look to it.  You can see some examples in my earlier blog entry here.  Keep an eye on Party and maybe Party City stores for coordinating partyware.

There's a tile with the ruby slippers on it that says "Keep the Courage, I want the shoes".  Bigger than I expected.   6" by 6" maybe.  Priced at $9.95.    Good Witch/Bad Witch double mug for $14.95.   Wicked Witch mug for $9.93 and Glinda/Wicked Witch sentiment plaque that reads "Good Friends are Great, Best Friends are Wicked"   $16.95.   I think that is going to be a hot item for the Wicked crowd too. 

Ornament Premiere is July 16th and 17th.  Don't forget there's a limited Ruby Slippers ornament this year so you'll want to be early.   Here's a peek at Glinda and Optimistic Voices.
