Don't give up looking on ebay and amazon. Try after the holiday..the further away from Christmas we get, the lower the prices will become. I usually get my snowbuddies ornaments this way..if I don't get this year's till NEXT Nov..it's fine with me..because I usually only end up paying a few dollars for them.

If it's an ornament you really want..you have to get to the hallmark store the weekend they put the ornaments out!

Oh, now that would be a nice gift for my sister.

I remember when I wanted this "lighted house" ornament one year. I saw it, did not buy it and then when I decided I wanted it, it was no where to be found. It was really cute.

I've learned with the ornaments, as a PP said, to get them the very weekend they come out, no matter how disgusted I am that they're bringing them out so early.

Best wishes.

I grabbed two sets the weekend they came out. Wishing I'd purchased more.

OP....wait 'til after Christmas. The prices will be much more reasonable. Good luck :-)

They are sold at CVS and Kohls. Check both of those. I will check at our local Hallmark and let you know if I find them. If I find them, do you want them?

Ask various Hallmark stores if you can be on their wait list for the display piece.

At our local Hallmark stores, once all the ones already in boxes are sold, the display piece is sold. No wait list involved.
