2015 Hallmark Ornament Debut Event

Sorry I've been such a slacker lately. Sometimes life just gets in the way, but I'll try to post more often. Hallmark kicked off their 2015 Ornament Debut this morning. In addition to over 100 new ornaments, Hallmark unveiled six new limited quantity ornaments:

The Peanuts Decking the Tree collection started with Charlie Brown. Lucy will be available beginning November 6th, Snoopy becomes available Thanksgiving weekend, and Woodstock on the Christmas tree will be available beginning December 4, 2015.

This years' mystery ornament is Fairy Surprise--a repaint of the Fairy Messengers #1: Poinsettia Fairy ornament. You may get a red and white fairy with gold accents or the more limited gold fairy with golden wings. I was surprised to find a couple stores already sold out of this ornament.

Did you find everything you were looking for at Debut? If not, check with Christmas Past for any that you missed.
