Online Teddy Bear Trunk Show May 8th & 9th at Mostly Bears

The Bear Scout's trunk show at Mostly Bears in March was a fun event! Since our online friends weren't able to attend, Felicia and I got together and took photos of all the bears in the show and will present an online trunk show on May 8th and 9th. The Mostly Bears Online Trunk Show will open at 9 am PST on May 8th and will run until 5 pm on May 9th. See creations from all the artists represented by The Bear Scout. We will be offering free shipping on all items. Hope you can join us!
p.s. Stay tuned here for some "sneak previews" just like the one above!
