The address on Harbor Blvd caught my eye and mapquest shows this as being really close to Disneyland. I didn't realize that Garden Grove was so close to Anaheim.

Do you know if they normally have a Hallmark show in this area at this time of the year? If so, I may have to plan a future trip to Disney and take in the Hallmark show at the same time.

Hi Theresa,
Yes, the HoHo Club tries to do a show in January every year. I'll ask if we have dates yet for the 2010 show. Our show organizer usually announces the next year's show during the event, so she's probably working on finalizing details now.
It is very close to Disneyland - should make for a fun trip! If memory does not fail, there is also a big Disney show that often happens on the same weekend, also.

I have two questions about this show: Are there any activities the evening before, like a KOC artist talk/signing? Is this show strictly retail or are dealers willing to swap?

Our show chair wasn't able to attend our December meeting, so I didn't get an answer to whether we have dates lined up 2010...stay tuned for more info!

Alan, there is no event the evening prior. This is a secondary market show run by a Hallmark local club, not hosted by Hallmark. Many of the sellers are club members, although there are quite a few others who are not club members that have bought table space. Some of the club member sellers are collectors that may possibly be interested in trading/swapping. I think the more business-type dealers would mainly be interested in selling, but you never know until you ask.

The mix of different types of sellers makes for a fun show to attend. You can pick up real bargains from folks that are interested in clearing out some space, you can see some really rare and special pieces from the long-term secondary dealers. Some sellers carry other items like Beanie Babies, Disneyana, Barbie, Snoopy etc.

I've put in two consecutive 27 hour shifts at work (with only a seven hour break between them to sleep, eat, etc) and a couple of ten hour shifts as well on the other days this week, and am so exhausted I'm not able to be at the show today.
I had hoped to meet some online friends today there.
If anybody goes, please write and let me know how it was. Thanks!

I had a great time at the HOHO show. I picked several miniature ornaments, that were missing from the my collection. Even, the elusive elf tappers were available! I didn't stay very long; Sunday was a beautiful sunny day with the temperature in the 80s. \:\)

Hi Theresa, I posted the date of the next show on its own thread, but here it is for handy reference: Sunday, January 10, 2010.
We hope to have it at the same location, very close to Disneyland. At our local club meeting last night we were told that the contracts are being written and nothing is firm until they are complete. Full information will be listed as soon as everything is confirmed.
Hope you can join us! What could make for a better weekend than Hallmark and Disneyland? \:\)
