Little News on Charlie Bears

Well, it is now the third week of December and our promised, big boxes of Charlie Bears have not materialized. It is a big disappointment to many that they would not make good on their promises to deliver all Autumn bears to us by the holidays. We have yet to receive our initial plush order and have not been sent a single mohair piece.

I do have my health, family and friends to thank, though, for a wonderful year. They have all been very reliable and great to have around us. We have had a terrific 2009 and are looking towards a great 2010. We are very blessed and thankful for all of you!

Crossroads Teddy Show

We hope you all had a terrific Turkey Day! Thanksgiving is a wonderful American holiday and probably my favorite. It's great to focus on friends and family without all the stress which comes with other big holidays.

We had a great showing at the recent Crossroads Doll & Teddy Show at the Santa Clara Fairgrounds. We found some new homes for our lovely bears and hip new Toffee dolls.

We were able to help provide a very special kat to one of our friends. Jacqui Ellerton of Jac-Q-Lyn Bears created an awesome rendition of a flame-tipped Himalayan using some wonderfully soft and dense alpaca fur along with some of Jacqui's magical, artistic touches. Francois is an exceptional example of the personal attention and care Jacqui puts into every piece of work she creates. We are pleased and honored to represent her in North America.

Well, more Charlie Bears are arriving on Thursday. In the Charlie Bears Newsletter for December, they are still promising on-time delivery of all pre-orders before the holidays! I can't wait to meet them all, and I am sure you feel similarly.

We'll try and get some new photos up soon of the newest arrivals. Just check our IRL page or send us an email.
