Selling Ornaments to The Ornament Shop
** Please Take the Time and Read Carefully Before Sending a List **
The Ornament Shop does at times purchase Hallmark Ornaments individually or as collections. However, we do not buy everyone's ornament(s) or collection, and we also do not pay the price listed in our price list.
Please include the lowest price you will take for your items.
We get a lot of lists and have a limited amount of time to review them. Including the lowest price you will accept makes the process faster for everyone. To sell your hallmark ornament collection we ask that you send a list of your collection along with quantities and the of each ornament. (click on link for a complete description of how to grade)If just QX numbers are listed without names, the list will be totally ignored. You will increase your chances of selling if the list is organized by year or by series . We do not need pictures of the items. Virtually all dealers will ask for the same information.
Also please note if you will sell individual items (we advise) or only as a lot. We accept list files in Excel, Word, Lotus and Text formats only. You have to have a dollar amount in mind if you are serious about selling the items. You can always say I would like this amount but am negotiable.
The most frequently asked question is what percentage do we pay? We do not pay a percentage because each piece is different. Some pieces are highly collectible and some have little value. This is why we need to see a list, otherwise we have no idea of what you have. Another common question is how much should I ask? That is entirely up to you. It is easiest to view this process similiar to selling a car. If selling a car online you would have to list details as far as the year, make and model etc of the car to sell. In addition look at the price you want in the same manner. What is the price that if somebody offered to you, you would say "You know I think I would rather have that money than these ornaments." We hope that helps answers your questions.
Please visit Contact page for our mailing address to send your list or you can email a list by clicking here. We will review your list and contact you if we are interested. We ask that you do not call us and ask over the phone to evaluate your list as this does not give us sufficient time to evaluate the true value of your hallmark ornament collection. We also do not sell items on consignment.
Please include an email address and a phone number.
