Hallmark's Star Wars Keepsake Ornaments Debut July 16th

Every year in July, Hallmark Stores unveil their new line of Keepsake Ornaments during their Keepsake Ornament Premiere Weekend.  These range from ornaments that celebrate special moments, family traditions, favorite characters, famous movie moments and much more.  I haven’t missed opening day of the ornament premiere in over a decade.  I know Christmas is 5 months away, but there is something that draws me to the premiere each year – the Special Edition Star Wars Ornament.  They release one each year that is available only the weekend of the premiere.

This year’s Special Edition Star Wars Ornament is Bossk from Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back.  If you want to add this to your ornament collection, it will only be available to purchase this weekend, July 16th and 17th, at your local Hallmark Store.

This year Hallmark is also offering four other Star Wars Ornaments.  Three will be available in store only starting this weekend.
