About Ornaments & More
Welcome to our one of a kind personalized ornament website. We guarantee that our selection and personalization options are the most extensive you will find anywhere. In 1993, Ellen, the founder of this site, opened a kiosk at The Mall in Columbia which is located in Columbia, Maryland under the name Ornaments and More selling personalized ornaments , the first kiosk of its kind in the US! Yes, Ellen was the innovator of the concept of selling hand personalized Christmas ornaments from a kiosk. She and licensees, at various times during the past 20 years, have operated Ornaments and More kiosks in Annapolis Mall in Annapolis, Maryland; The Mall in Columbia in Columbia, Maryland; White Marsh Mall, Baltimore, Maryland; Towson Town Center in Towson, Maryland; Westfield Montgomery Mall in Bethesda, Maryland; Tysons Corner Center, McLean, Virginia; Madison Square Mall in Huntsville, Alabama; Parkway Place Mall in Huntsville, Alabama; and The Mall at Wellington Green, Wellington, Florida.
In years past, we have seen how parents, grandparents, aunts, godparents, etc. have enjoyed selecting ornaments each Christmas season to commemorate what different family members have done over the course of that particular year. Some customers choose to use the personalized Christmas tree decorations as place cards at the Thanksgiving dinner table; while others tie them onto a Christmas gift package as part of a family tradition. The idea is that their Christmas tree tells the wonderful story of the family’s life. Many customers have expressed to us that it would be hard to part with such cherished ornaments; however, they intend on passing these hand personalized ornaments down to their children when they eventually leave home. Thus they are reminding their children of the exciting traditions celebrated during the holidays each time the unique ornaments display during the holidays.
Ellen’s love for her business is clearly reflected on this site. She is proud to present to you what she believes are the best personalized ornaments available from each of her suppliers and artists. She selects only those ornaments which she feels have the best value, appeal and quality. Ellen keeps current on what people of all ages are doing while keeping current with the latest trends and lifestyles. Ellen and her well-experienced team hope you enjoy browsing our site and find ornaments which will bring meaning and a smile to those on your list. As always, if you don’t find one of our text choices appealing, we are happy to write your own message or sentiment on any personalized Christmas ornament when you fill out the box marked “other” in the personalized section of the ornament.
As you browse, you will find many familiar ornaments and many new ones. In the “off season” Ellen spends her time attending trade shows and networking with other personalized ornament lovers to bring you the best that the industry has to offer. So, please check the website frequently as we will be adding to the site as often as possible. Thank you for stopping by today. And remember, besides shopping with us, the best compliment we can receive from YOU is a referral. We look forward to being part of your holiday tradition for many years to come.
