Do you buy Hallmark Ornaments and Collectibles?

Yes we do. We buy from collectors, estates, stores and other secondary market dealers.
We can offer cash, store credit or trade
We don't buy everything and we no longer buy Hallmark Merry Miniature or Kiddie Car Classic Tabletop collectibles.
We occasionally buy Enesco and Carlton ornaments.
Ornaments and packaging should be in MINT, like new condition.

Due to the number of phone calls and emails we receive on this topic we will do our best to provide you with all of the information you need on this page.
We will no longer answer questions by phone or email regarding the topic; every one will be directed to this page.
Let's get started with our top questions...


HOW DO I SUBMIT A LIST OF ITEMS FOR SALE

First, we'd like to recommend that you go through your collection removing any ornaments that are damaged, do not function, missing parts or were displayed for a long period and are discolored or dirty. Make sure the correct ornament is in the correct box and any empty boxes are noted as such.
Grade your boxes at this time
     Mint = Like New, with NO noticeable damage, looking like it came off the shelf yesterday
     Slightly Damaged  = when you examine the box you can view fingernail indents, you can see where the box has been opened, there is slight damage
     Damaged = You can easily see the box is damaged

Typically it makes most sense to list your items by year and by series.
Include ITEM YEAR and NAME - Box Condition - Quantity Available and PRICE 


So, at this point there are some people who are saying that's more work than I want to do.
These people can submit their collection as a lot. We'll need to have a general idea of date range and the primary types of ornaments included.
Pictures are often helpful so that we can see some of what's there and the condition. 
Because we don't really know what we're buying - this type of list will get you the lowest amount of money for your collection.
This type of list is usually bought/sold as $1 - $2 per box.
You can do a bit of sorting and sell it per ornament type Magic ornaments $10, Series ornaments $6, Regular Keepsakes $4, Miniature ornaments $1   (Remember these are suggestions of pricing. What we see in your collection pictures/description will determine what we can pay0

PRICING ITEMS FOR SALE
If you've gone the extra step with your list and have your ornaments listed by year and now you're wondering how to price them the following should help.
You'll want to do a little research to see what these items are selling for on our website, on our competitors' site and on ebay. 

Compare current secondary market prices with the original retail. If an ornament is selling below or around the original retail it is a LOW demand/HIGH supply ornament - these are ornaments that we need to buy very low ($1-$5 per box).  If an ornament is selling around double retail - we're probably wanting to pay a little less than retail/box. If an ornament is selling for more than double - those are high demand/low supply. If an item sells for $100, wholesale pricing is $50. Then factor in the following: 1) most customers purchase from us to take advantage of our many promotions like 10-25% off, Free Shipping and Free Gift with purchase, 2) "high dollar" doesn't mean they'll sell quickly. We have merchandise that sits on the shelf for years between purchases, and 3) we most likely already have 90% or more of the items you're offering us in stock. 

All of these things factor in when determining what to pay for ornaments.If an item sells for $100, wholesale pricing is $50, most customers purchase from us to take advantage of our many promotions like 10-25% off, Free Shipping and Free Gift with purchase. Another factor to consider is although some items are "high dollar" that doesn't mean they'll sell quickly. We literally have things that sit on the shelf for years between purchases. Also we most likely already have 90% or more of the items you're offering us in stock. All of these things factor in when determining what to pay for ornaments.


In the end, there are no set rules for submitting lists or pricing. But keep in mind we currently have a WAREHOUSE FULL OF ORNAMENTS, this week we'll receive offers of multiple collections for sale - depending on the season we probably get offered 2-5 collections per day on average.
