There aren't any anywhere in Los Angeles. And we've got almost as many Hallmark's as Starbucks around here.

That is not the real story. Charms were recalled as a precaution and tested for lead but were found to be safe.

I live in NY I found some last Saturday in a Hallmark in the mall, and some more this morning in gift store. I think shipments are going back out now.

I reserched a bit about that and I think what happend was that other ganz products had lead in them and they stoped production to do a lead test and hold court.

I'm not saying I don't believe you, but that just doesn't make sense. The charms come in from China into the Port of Los Angeles/Port of San Pedro. It makes no sense then that the charms would surface on the East Coast first when they get to the West Coast first.

If charms had been found to have contained lead, I believe Ganz would have issued a recall. Especially because they are geared for children. They didn't. There was a hang up with shipping them though. That was from a Ganz representative. Our stores about 60 miles east of LA still have them though.

There are so many stories. I live in NJ and can't find charms. Hallmark & other gift shops have given me the lead paint story too, & I believe them since they are made in China. The charms I have I got on Ebay, and sellers are really taking advantage of the fact that they just can't be gotten out in the stores.
