Christmas Ornaments Are Getting Scarce This Year

by blackspanielgallery

Christmas ornaments are getting scarce this year because of shipping problems. Some, however, are available.

Christmas ornaments are scarce this year compared to last year. In 2021, I bought Christmas ornaments to sell online. I actually made two orders, and while a few of my selections had sold out at their source before I ordered, most of my choices were available. This year things are different. I started early and called in my order. I planned to buy before the best selections were unavailable. All seemed well, and I requested delivery in July.

When it came time for my order to ship, I called to confirm things were going well. It was disappointing to find many of the Christmas ornaments I had ordered were not yet in. This year there is a problem with shipping. Items are being shipped late, and when they arrive the ships cannot get into port to unload. The ships must wait their turn anchored offshore. To make matters worse, the ships anchored awaiting a place to unload their cargo have so many shipping containers aboard that there is a shortage of empty containers to fill, so the manufacturers cannot even load their products for shipping.

I cancelled some Christmas ornaments and changed my order to include those that were available. This was months after I wanted to have my Christmas ornaments online and selling. The company I buy from was prompt with what they had, and I listed the Christmas ornaments immediately after they arrived.

My Second Order

Because Christmas ornaments are arriving slowly this year, I quickly called to place a second order.  I made certain only those ornaments that are available are included.  I expect the second order to arrive in a few days. 

 

Of course, ordering only those ornaments that are available made the selection difficult.  But I cannot delay an order because a portion of it is not yet in. 

Kurt Adler Pet Christmas Ornaments

One of the types of Christmas ornaments I decided upon this year is the dog in the doghouse ornament.  I ordered the Labrador retriever because it comes in three different colors, black, yellow, and chocolate.  Now that they have arrived, I have placed an order for others.  I am quite happy with the appearance and quality of these ornaments.

 

They come for just about any breed you can imagine.  These ornaments should appeal to dog owners.  There is also a place to add writing, so personalizing them is possible.  I would expect pet names would be what most people would add.

 

I have also ordered a different set of dog ornaments, one with a dog resting on a pillow and the other with a dog sitting on a box.

Snowman Ornaments

I ordered sets of three ornaments consisting of two snowman and one snowwoman.  These are quite attractive ornaments, and they can be used on a Christmas tree or on a table.  I have them listed as a set as well as individually.

Icicle Christmas Ornaments

I have bought boxed sets of twelve glass icicle ornaments.  I selected the clear ones, but they also come in colors.  They should catch and refract the light from the Christmas lighting in an amazing manner.  If there is any airflow they should reflect and refract in a twinkling manner.

Unicorn Christmas Ornament

Last year I had unicorn Christmas ornaments, and they sold out.  There was a demand for them.  So, this is one of the Christmas ornaments I reordered this year.  They have just enough glitter to make them sparkle, and they are painted in multiple colors.

Peppermint Candy Christmas Ornaments

I found a lovely set of six different design and color scheme Christmas ornaments.  The set is my favorite of the ornaments that came in this shipment.  They are available as a set, and look much better than their image reveals.

Wrapped Candy Christmas Ornaments

A new design this year is Christmas ornaments designed to look like wrapped candy.  They come in four colors, and are four inches long, long enough to be visible between the branches of the Christmas tree.  They are relatively inexpensive, so I sell them eight at a time, two each of the different colors.

Santa with a List

Another new design this year is Santa with a Nice list.  This design is a can be personalized Christmas ornament, so a child’s name can be placed on the blank list.  In fact, the list has enough room for several names to be added, so if a family has multiple children, or a grandparent has a few grandchildren, it can hold a few names.  This is a real attractive Christmas ornament.

Blue Ornaments

I have ordered sets of blue, shatterproof Christmas ornaments.  There are two designs, and they are available as a set.  These have white flowers on them.

Poinsettia Christmas Ornaments

I also have ordered sets of distressed, shatterproof Poinsettia Christmas ornaments.  Each set has a red poinsettia and a white poinsettia.  The poinsettia is the most known “flower” associated with Christmas.  Actually, the actual poinsettia flower is rather small and often overlooked.  The colorful display is new leaves and not technically the flower.  However, the beauty is there regardless of the exact identity of the colorful part of the plant.

More Coming

Because there is such a scarcity of Christmas ornaments, I quickly found a few more to order.  They are not yet here, but should arrive soon.
