The Hawaii Keepsake Collectors Club, sponsored by Amy’s Hallmark Ala Moana Center, is one of 16 local Hallmark clubs to win a national Hallmark competition this year. The club won an event that presents three awesome opportunities for Hawaii residents, collectors and visitors to share in the win, including a first-time-ever visit by a Hallmark master artist!
Local Club’s Winning Prize is a Hallmark Event that Scores Exclusive Perks for All Hawaii! Three Event Exclusives: Artist Signing with Hallmark Master Artist Ken Crow, Exclusive Santa's Workbench Event Ornament & Hawaiian-Style itty bittys® Available Only in Hawaii!
-Artist Signing with Hallmark Master Artist Ken Crow
As a winning prize, Hallmark is sending one of its most beloved Keepsake Ornament artist, Master Artist Ken Crow, to Amy’s Hallmark Ala Moana Center for an artist signing event on August 6, 2016. The signing starts at 9:30 a.m. and the public is invited to come and get their favorite Ken Crow ornaments — new and old — signed by the artist. Limit of two (2) items signed per time through the signing line. Tickets assigning specific signing times will be handed out at the door so that event goers won’t have to wait in long lines.
- Exclusive Artist Signing Event Piece: Santa’s Workbench Ornament
During the event, Amy’s Hallmark Ala Moana Center, will have an exclusive event ornament, Santa’s Workbench, available for purchase.

As the winning club’s retail sponsor, Amy’s Hallmark Ala Moana Center is one of only 16 stores in the entire U.S. where these exclusive ornaments will be available! Sales will be limited to one (1) event ornament per person, while supplies last. These collectors pieces often sell for two to four times their original price through secondary market sellers. Tickets guaranteeing an opportunity to purchase a Santa’s Workbench ornament will be handed out at the door so the public won’t have to wait in long lines hoping to purchase one of these exclusive collector’s items.
