Members Newsletter

accountantHi Bear Club Members,

Well my annual end of year meeting with our accountant went well this week and I was happy to hear that in spite of a very tough year for retailers in general we have come through in good shape and even had a small improvement over last year.

If you think the accountant looks a bit stressed there is a good reason for this, its his job to ensure that all things like stock control, cash flow, debtors & creditors all stay in balance so that the business continues to grow.

So he always gets nervous when he hears I have been out ordering more bears as he knows I am a sucker for a cute furry face and generally come home with way too much stock.

It seems that again I have tossed the fine balance out of kilter and have overstocked us to the point that if I don’t reduce quite a lot of stock I won’t be able to afford all the new designs I have ordered.
I have been searching for a fabled Money Tree so that cash flow would never be a problem but the accountant assures me that they really don’t exist so I guess the only thing I can do is follow his instructions and have a massive overstocked clearance sale.

Charlie Bears are going from strength to strength and have just been presented with one of the most covet awards in the teddy bear industry, being announced as winners of the 2018 Public Choice Award for manufactured bears.
I am sure all our Charlie Bear collectors will be as pleased with this award as we are and join us in congratulating
William & Charlie Morris on this well deserved achievement.

DISPLAY TIPS FROM JAN
Members often ask about different and interesting ways to
display their bears and often they are very short on space.
IMG_2554Jan is always happy to share her ideas and this gave me the inspiration for a new segment in our newsletter, so each month now I will feature another idea or two that you may enjoy .
Not every one is lucky enough to have acres of space to create great displays like Jan who is quite spoilt by Troy and I with a dedicated Bear Room and basically the run of the house for her teddies but with a little creativity some amazing displays can be achieved in very small spaces.

This month she has created a small tower of crates that takes up very little floor space but creates a home for quite a number of bears depending on their size.
She also found a novel way to use a decorative pendulum wall clock to make an interesting home for her new Charlie Bears set of mice, Hickory, Dickory & Doc, this is a very fitting place for mice who are famous for “running up the clock” in the children’s nursery rhyme.

MORE NEW DESIGNS FROM BEARFLAIR

mossyjacob1Have you adopted any of these very quirky Artist Bears from Bearflair, if so you will have had the pleasure of seeing first hand the detail and love that Alaine puts into all her creations, if not then you are missing out on having some truly unique teddies in your collection

These very affordable bears make perfect additions to your hug, adding some vibrant splashes of color if you sit them amongst your
more traditional bears.

Since joining our talented team of Australian Bear Artists several years ago Alaine Ferreira has become a favourite with members who have taken her very quirky creations into their hearts with the humor and fun that they were designed with, each one notably a Bearflair Creation but still a unique individual one of a kind artist bear.

REMEMBER!
YOU CAN NAME YOUR OWN BEAR

Settler Bears a new breedname your ownThe very popular Settler Bears have been leaders in naming bears for many years but once a name had been used it was then retired to avoid confusion with stockists when they are re-ordering them.

Often the name you want on your bear for that special person is not available but rejoice for we have finally come up with a simple system where you can select ANY bear from the Settler Bears range and have its name tag changed to whatever you like.

This means that you get the bear in the size, style and price range that you want and get ANY name you like on the bear

We do this on an official Settler Bear name tag that is attached to it’s ear in the same way the original factory tag was fitted and the other great surprise is that there is no extra cost for this extra service, we do this for you FREE of Charge

CHARLIE BEARS UPDATE

JungSTILL PLAYING CATCH-UP
Wow, the new 2018 bears are arriving thick and fast at the moment, lots of happy members as their pre-orders are coming through.
Some plush designs we are still only receiving an initial burst of a small number of our orders with the balance to follow so there are sometimes not enough delivered to allow us to fulfill all pre-orders from the initial shipment.
This new system of allocating production to a specific quarter of the year is working better especially for those that ordered earliest but still a slight disappointment to any that ordered later as we must allocate the arrivals in the order that they were sold. Sorry NO exceptions to this rule can be made

Charlie Bears are sadly still running late with quite a few designs, often this is caused by material delays that are out of their hands but I am happy to reassure members that over the past 12 years that we have been a major stockist they have only had to cancel a couple of designs and despite a design sometimes being delayed in production they have always delivered everything we have ordered.
William Morris has stated that ALL older designs that have not been delivered yet will definitely still arrive and that he expects to have caught up with outstanding orders by this Christmas.

If you have outstanding pre-orders please do not harass us about when they are coming as we do not know, we will advise you as soon as we get any information from Charlie Bears.

If you wish to look at any of the now hundreds of amazing designs currently available you can see them all in the following Charlie Bear categories...
