Hi Bear Club Members,
Sorry we missed you last month, I have been quite unwell and not in the office too much and did not have enough time to do our regular monthly newsletter.
So this month the newsletter is my top priority and we are making up for missing May’s news with a huge storewide
Pre-Stocktake Sale - that’s right every item in store is on sale so you can grab some bargains on anything that takes your fancy, scroll down for details of the sale.
This month we also welcome a major new brand into our hug with the arrival of the first shipment from Germany of the handmade bears from Clemens Originals, scroll down for more details.
LOCAL & GLOBAL TEDDY NEWS
The good, the bad and the cuddly!
Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II celebrates her 90th Birthday and sets a milestone as the longest reigning monarch.
To mark these very special occasions Hermann have created a couple of special bears to add to their very collectable series of teddys based on the Queen and her family.
You can see all these designs in the Hermann Coburg section of our catalogue by clicking this direct link
CLEMENS BEARS ORIGINALS
We are excited to announce that we now a major Australian Stockist of the fabulous range of Clemens Bears from Germany who have been hand making teddy bears and animals since 1948.
Our first shipment of designs has arrived this week and Jan is busy getting them all online for your enjoyment, not all have had their full descriptions added as this takes quite some time but she is spending every spare moment in bringing this information up to date, all the pictures and prices are online and you can now place orders for the designs showing on our catalogue.
The range includes many quirky designs nicely dressed in Germanic styled outfits but they also have a really good selection in more traditional designs including the Nostalgic series that will remind many of our members of the teddys that were popular in the 50’s and 60’s, some even have growlers in them.
Next month we will be holding a special “Tea with the Teddies” event in store to officially launch the new ranges with a guest speaker from Clemens, lots of great new bears to meet, discounts and door prizes.
Further details of this event and your invitation will be in next months newsletter along with a history of the Clemens Bears
