Our store got in only one of the season treating's ornament. They told me they had 14 total ornaments that were suppose to be for sale today that did not show up. Anybody else run into this at Debut?

Our store got in two. I was first on the Wish List and they do allow limited ornament requests but mine got overlooked. They were so apologetic and I told them I appreciated what they do for customers. Maybe they can get from another store but I think I am out of luck on this one. I will keep my fingers crossed and keep an eye out online. That was the hot one this year. Hot cocoa! Yum and durn. smile

My store had one Season's Treatings on the shelf. I don't know if there were any in the wish list bags. I managed to score it as I was the first through the door so I was happy. There were quite a few unhappy customers as many in the store were there for that limited. I felt bad for the employees. I got my wish list items and checked out. I forgot about the Teensy Nutcracker free gift for club members so I will have to go back.

My store called yesterday to say that only half of my ornaments were filled. Ordered the ones missing online (Link and HAL 9000). This the first time they've failed to fill my list.

Walking Dead seemed to bomb the most. Wish lists took everything but Walking Dead, Riddler, and Lionel.

I got my two: Seasonís Treatings and Queen of Hearts. According to what the manager said to angry customers, they got in fifty of the Seasonís Treatings. On Facebook, Iím seeing much lower numbers. Store had at least 400 wish lists as well.

That ornament is for the local club members, not the KOC members, so your store won't have it unless they have a local club.

My store only had Mrs. Taz, Walking Dead, and Queen of Hearts on the shelf. Glad I had put some on my wish list (I usually don't) because I got the three I wanted - Queen of Hearts, Riddler, and Seasons Treatings.

I got to the store early to be the first in line since you can not put limited ones on your wish list. It was too hot and muggy to sit outside so I asked if they needed any help - they had me put out the limited ones. There were 14 Season's Treatings and 6 Jiminey Crickets - there was plenty of the other limited ones

Well that explains the Teensy Nutcracker. I didn't look that close to the fine print. My store has struggled with a local club. Everyone on the boards are so knowledgeable about all the ins and outs of Hallmark.

I got to my Hallmark store in the mall at 9:30 am, and I was the only customer. There were 5 Season's Treatings on the shelf. I'm not sure how many were already in customers' Wish List bags, since this store set aside the limiteds into Wish List bags. I had forgotten to drop off my October Wish List. [Yes, I have a July list, an October list, a November list, and a December list. Since the assistants had no other customers, I just called out my fifteen October Debut ornaments and they filled my basket for me. What service! I even had time to open the mystery boxes. My lucky streak from the San Diego signing continued as my first hummingbird mystery box was the gold one :), and the second one was the beautiful blue one!
Later, I drove to the local franchise store and they were sold out of the Season's Treatings LE ornament.

My store had the same problem with the Season's Treatings and the
mini candy stocking, but I had a great time being there and
looking at the Debut ornaments.

I wouldn't expect the store that sponsors a local club to distribute the local club ornament. The store doesn't know who should get one, and distribution for every club I've ever heard of controls who gets one. The club determines who gets one based on criteria they set. For example, many clubs prioritize members whose names were on the roster submitted to Hallmark the previous January to get one before members who joined after the roster was submitted. The roster is used by Hallmark to determine how many ornaments each club gets, and it makes sense to give those members whose names were on the list first chance.

I strongly believe Hallmark made a mistake that is causing problems by listing the Teensy Nutcracker in For Keeps earlier this year. People are going to visit stores looking for it, the associates aren't going to know anything about it (unless someone trained them to say "you have to belong to a local club to get one" and anything else they choose to include, which makes the customer think the associate doesn't know their job very well), and it's going to create some hard feelings that shouldn't happen.

I haven't received either any local club info or ornaments. I hope clubs with no sponsor store still get them.

My store got an email this morning saying the Teensy Nutcrackers would start shipping in mid-October to the sponsor stores. For those clubs without a sponsor, the ornaments will be sent to the club president.

Tons of Queen of Hearts all over but the others came in short supply. I got the ones I wanted but had to travel to find them.
