Hallmark Ornaments
updated: Dec 22, 2013, 2:31 PM

Referral request: With all the Hallmark stores departed from the area, are there any local stores that sell Christmas ornaments that include the year and perhaps feature cute little animals in a style similar to the Hallmark ornaments?

It is an annual tradition in our household to buy an ornament for each of us reflecting something that was memorable or meaningful during that year. Our trip to Hallmark at the beginning of each December was something that we all looked forward to. However, since the Hallmark in Goleta closed, we have to gather around the computer and choose our ornaments on Amazon and have them shipped to us. The pluses are that they are priced right, include shipping (Prime Membership) and give us a huge variety. The minus is that the experience has lost some of it's cool factor. We tried CVS the first 2 years but their selection is terrible. We also tried a few specialty shops but they just don't carry that Hallmark style that we seek.

Drive to Ventura. Unfortunately the rents in Santa Barbara have become far too expensive to support that type of shop.

Coast 2 Coast Collections in La Arcada Court has some beautiful ornaments, including Waterford crystal ornaments engraved with "2013".

Are there any Kohl's stores near you? I found a better selection of Hallmark ornaments over the weekend. Yes, you can purchase the display ornaments, don't let an employee tell you they aren't for sale. CVS went the way of American Greetings this year.

My suggestions: K-mart, and of course Glenda's Party Cove in Loreto Plaza, Michael's Crafts. How about making your ornaments for a family activity?
