Hi Bear Club Members,

I like to try and keep members updated on what is happening in the market place and in our industry and this month there are a lot of things to report both good and bad.

It’s certainly been a tough year for many people and in particular retailers as the effects of the GFC continue to impact on our economy and our lives.
Manufacturers in our industry are really feeling the pinch with falling demand for many products, this combined with rising production costs and spiraling shipping costs has created a severe situation for quite a few suppliers both big and small.
teddyThe falling Australian dollar is also having an effect on all imported ranges and we may sadly see increases on many of our more popular brands over the next few months.
They have been reluctant to increase prices in this difficult market to cover these rising costs so their profitability has been suffering.
Ranges are shrinking in an attempt to keep stock holdings to a level sustainable in this current market.

But it is not all bad news for collectors, these difficult times have created some excellent opportunities for members to scoop up some great bargains as suppliers clear their stocks at heavily discounted prices.

We are in a fairly good position to take full advantage of these great offers to pass on to you and have been negotiating some fantastic deals on entire ranges of popular products, our only problem with this is finding enough storage space for all the pallets of stock we have been ordering.

So we need your help to clear some of this extra stock and in return we are offering some amazing bargains.

The good, the bad and the cuddly!

!cid_image001_jpg@01CE68F2WHAT A GREAT JOB

I thought I had the ultimate job working with teddy bears all the time but the satisfaction this Chinese worker must get from caring for these beautiful Panda Cubs makes my work seem quite mundane.

One day when I am ready to retire from this phase in my life I might pack it all up and move to China to look after them myself, might even start a foundation to help protect and ensure the survival of this endangered species.

If you are a regular reader of my newsletters you will know I have a real passion and a soft spot for Pandas, I think they are one of the most amazing animals on the planet.

I am sure I would not be short of volunteers from our members wanting a holiday and willing to help out with this if I decided to do it.

ct13780 - for you mumCHERISHED TEDDIES
I have both good and bad news for our collectors, particularly for those into Cherished Teddies.

The Bad News -
No more Cherished Teddies for Australia

Whitehill & Co the Australian Distributors along with the UK distributors have announced that due to falling demand
bought on by the Global Financial Crisis that it was no longer viable for them to continue importing the Cherished Teddies ranges from Enesco, this decision means the end of Cherished Teddies in Australia and England and will have major worldwide ramifications on the future production of these collectable figurines.

The need to produce these figurines in high quantities to keep the prices reasonable, the high cost of shipping such heavy items, warehousing costs and the dedicated staff required to administer sales are all factors in the distributors decision to no longer support the range.

Many retailers in Australia stopped carrying them in the past few years which has also effected the sales potential and
viability of these and many other product lines.

The Good News -
We are having a Massive Clearance Sale

 

50% off all Cherished Teddies Designs

More designs added to the catalogue this week

ct14199 - nancy evaWe have done a deal with the distributors to clear the last of their stock holdings at heavily discounted prices.
That combined with our already huge range means that when this sale started we had over 9000 Cherished Teddies being cleared at half their regular prices.
The choices are vast as we have hundreds of designs available, some are recent releases and some are hard to find retired
designs but all are amazing value.

The clearance sale is being held both On-line and In-store, for our internet customers just add all the designs you would
like to the Enquiry Cart and use the Promotional Code
CT SALE we will then check stock availability and get back to you promptly with your discounted price.

In store we have set up a couple of huge trestle tables laden with bargains, as well as what is listed in our on-line catalogue we have a big selection of designs that are "last ones" that are not viable for us to spend the time putting them on line, the costs involved in photographing, processing and creating on line entries for these "last ones" is greater than what we sell them for.

So if you want a great bargain make a trip to the shop as soon as you can for the best selection, the Sale is on now and will run until we clear all stocks.

ct14874 - rachelThe sale is open to the general public as well so if you know any Cherished Teddies collectors who are not members of our club do them and us a favour and let them know about this massive clearance.

If you are not a CT Collector you may still wish to take advantage of this sale as Cherished Teddies make fantastic Christmas Presents and stocking fillers and at these prices you can't go wrong.

Sale is on now and ends when all stocks are sold

Be quick for the best selection

Here's how this sale works:
1.
Click this link to the Cherished Teddies catalogue and add all the designs you want to the enquiry cart.

2. Enter the Promotional Code CT SALE in the promo code box

3. Finally click on the submit cart button and I will check stock, work out your discounted total and postage
and get back to you for your final approval and payment.

BIG BOYS TOYS
speedy gonzales
This is a popular range of really nice poly resin figurines featuring Disney and Warner Bros cartoon characters.

Sadly the Manufacture who makes this collection has not renewed their license with Disney to produce these designs so the range is being retired, that makes them all the more collectable.

We still have limited stocks of Speedy Gonzales, Yosemite Sam, Tazzie Devil, Betty Boop, Winnie the Pooh, Tigger, Heffalump, Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse and a couple of nice Tigger & Pooh bedside lamps which would make lovely Christmas presents for the kids or grand kids.

So the designs we do have in stock are all being reduced and members can save 25% off them all until the 30th November

Click here to see the range  Type Big Boys Sale in the Promotional code box to get this discount

So to quote our friend Speedy Gonzales “Andelee Andelee Ariba Ariba ” be quick or miss out.
