Wandering around the store with my camera (again)...bears and other animals just jump out and ask to be photographed! Here's a few "faces":
All these lovelies are, of course, attached to bodies that are for sale. Let me know if you see anything that jumps out at you!
"UrsaBeara" is a limited edition bear that was produced by Gund in the late 90's as a part of their amazing Signature Collection. She is 21" in size and made of a very scruffy off-white plush fur. The color is actually a bit darker/yellower than the above photos really show. She has 5 joints and a stamped Rita Raiffe signature on her paw. UrsaBeara would be a great addition to any bear collection. She is a very large piece. She has been stocked away for awhile and needs a home! This is Gund Item # 9518. Number 298 of a limited edition of 475. UrsaBeara originally retailed for $150.
I hope you'll have a chance to pop over and make a bid. It's for a great cause!

Lukas & Sophie
This is a great offer for the holidays! Lukas and Sophie are the first set of Steiff/R.JohnWright felt dolls to arrive. (We hope to see Mathias and Katharina later this year.) I have photographed them still in their original box and wrapping. The photos do not do them justice! Their outfits are wonderfully detailed, down to Lukas' knitted socks! Their faces are gorgeous. These dolls are numbered alike.
Lukas is outfitted in a fully lined double-breasted felt jacket, felt shorts with embroidered straps, felt undershirt and tie, fully-lined laced felt cap, custom-woven wool socks with tassels and fine hand cobbled leather boots. He is 17 inches tall.
Sophie comes with silk ribbons in her hair. She is costumed in a felt dress with muslin sleeves and collar, a laced felt weskit, floral cotton apron, custom made stockings and undergarments and leather tie shoes. On one arm Sophie carries a custom-made handwoven basket with tiny felt flowers. She is
As a special gift when ordering this pair, we will send you
