Newsletter

 

Hi Bear Club Members,

Award 1Since our last newsletter in September we have been literally run off our feet in one of the busiest months we have ever had with many different things contributing to the chaos.
The school holidays fell in the middle of this and we saw a great increase in tourism visitors to our store, Jan was still off work after her surgery so we were running short staffed and several of our international suppliers decided that this was a great time to catch up on all our back orders.
It’s great to be busy but it sure tuckers me out trying to wear half a dozen different caps to get the job done.

Some other highlights this past month were us winning another award and nominations for two more.
We were Finalists in the Penrith Region Local Business Awards and then Winners of this award in the Antiques, Crafts and Collectables Category, this is our 6th win in these awards.

We were also finalists in the Blue Mountains Peoples Choice Awards and are currently nominated in the Channel 7
“Kochies Small Business Programs Website Rescue” more on this later in the newsletter.

We processed the largest quantity of bears, animals and figurines we have ever received in a 4 week period with almost 3000 pieces coming in and approximately 1900 going back out, many of these were Charlie Bears pre-orders and we are now in a very happy place with plenty of stock ready to meet the busy Christmas demand.
Read on for more on all the new arrivals.
Also read on for all this months great specials and offers all designed to help stretch your Christmas shopping budget a little further including the opportunity to get yourself a
FREE CHARLIE BEAR in one of our great promotions.

The good, the bad and the cuddly!

WINNIE THE POOH TURNS 88
Pooh88Last week marked the 88th anniversary of the release of the first edition of Winnie the Pooh by A.A. Milne.

This now classic story of a teddy bear and his friends is a world
 wide phenomenon with millions of children growing up loving this bear in books, films and toys.

Winnie-the-Pooh (1926) is the first volume of stories about Winnie-the-Pooh, by A. A. Milne.
It is followed by The House at Pooh Corner.
The book focuses on the adventures of a teddy bear called  Winnie-the-Pooh and his friends Piglet, a small toy pig, Eeyore, a toy  donkey, Owl, a live owl; and Rabbit, a live rabbit.
The characters  of Kanga, a toy kangaroo, and her son Roo are introduced later in the  book, in the chapter entitled "In Which Kanga and Baby Roo Come to the  Forest and Piglet has a Bath."
The bouncy toy-tiger character of Tigger is not introduced until the sequel, The House at Pooh Corner.

Disney later adapted the original Pooh Bear giving him a new look  characterised by his bright red shirt, they also created new versions of all Pooh's friends.

To celebrate all things Pooh this week we  are offering a whooping great 30% off the entire Pooh & Friends  Collection of figurines.
Almost 100 great designs are available and with Christmas coming up there has never been a better time to grab a bargain

JENNY ROUND IS PUTTING HER FEET UP

Jenny roundAfter almost 3 decades of making exquisite teddy bears many of which have won major industry awards Jenny is putting her feet up and slowing down into semi retirement having a break from making bears to pursue other interests.

After a tough couple of year fighting health issues Jenny plans to do some traveling and maybe tick a few things off her bucket list.

Having been one of our top artists for the last 10 years we are sad to lose this talented lady as she was responsible for quite a number of our exclusive editions including our Ted Kelly Gang, some of our Nana series of bears and gangs of Bikers, Pirates & Sailors as well as hundreds of cute little Grizzly Bears and Koalas.

Our international members especially love her bears as they are always wanting to take home a genuine Aussie Made  hand crafted product

So with Jenny taking at least a year or two off from making bears this is sad news for us bear collectors and era comes to an end with all current designs are to be retired when existing stocks run out.

Don’t miss the chance to secure one of the last pieces of Australian Teddy Bear History we may ever see from Jenny Round of Round - A Bout Bears.

 

We are offering you DOUBLE MEMBERS DISCOUNT on all Jenny Round Bears in stock until 30/11/14

leonardA VERY CRAFTY COLLECTOR

One of our Victorian club members has a real passion for Cross stitching as well as a great love of Charlie Bears so she has combined these two interests in a very clever way.

She has photographed some of her hug and used the picture as a template to create this amazing cross stitch, add the antiqued frame and it really looks the part.

The group cross stitch is a metre long and 66 cm high, it took Wanda over 4 months to create working approximately 6 hours a day, what a gigantic effort.

The result certainly is a unique piece of artwork that will become a valued family heirloom into the future.

Wanda is currently working on a cross stitch portrait of her favorite Charlie Bear Leonard, she has not told me how long this one will take but who cares as it is most obviously a labor of love.

Great work Wanda!

CHARLIE BEARS UPDATE

TattyBACK ORDERS NOW 80% COMPLETED
Over the past 9 weeks we have been inundated with deliveries from Charlie Bears as the have been working extra shifts to ensure they can keep William’s promise to stockists and collectors that they intend to catch up on all current designs before Christmas.

Without exaggeration we have received several thousand bears and animals from our back orders and if you have a look at the pre-order sections of our catalogue you will notice that there is less than a page of outstanding designs in both categories.

This means that most of the lovely bears you have been waiting up to 2 years to see are finally delivered, hopefully the new ranges being released in the new year will be produced on time and hopefully we won’t see these long delays again

MINIMO MOHAIR DESIGNS
Recently arrived this week are more of the current Minimo Collection, Diddly Doo, Hiccup, Little one, Moonbeam, Moth, Scrap and Tatty.
All pre-orders have been filled and we have a few of each
design still available for adoption.

Bananas and custard e1That now only leaves 3 designs in this series to be delivered Cosmopolitan, Whiskers & Nibble

All outstanding Minimo designs will be delivered over the next two months with the last designs coming in by Christmas at the latest, I do not know which designs will be first or last but be assured they are all not too far away now.

ISABELLE MOHAIR DESIGNS Another large shipment has just arrived in store with a whole lot of bears we have been waiting some time for.

We have now finished unpacking and sorting these bears, given them a welcome to Australia hug or two and if you had any of these designs on order we have been in touch with you to organise getting them home to you.
The following designs have arrived and after filling all members pre-orders we do have very limited quantities of most designs still available if you are quick

Bananas & Custard - Brock - Bubble
CrockettBuster - Chamberlain - Crockett
Hedgerow - Masterpiece 2013 - Mandarin
Miss Haversham - Mr Toots - Nuzzle

CHARLIE BEARS ON TVSN
I know it might seem a little strange that we would be promoting a competitor however we do have a good reason for doing so.

The TV shopping channel is a good vehicle for Charlie Bears to show nationally some of their ranges and you get to see the bears being presented by Rob Morris and the shows host in a way that we cannot do through the shop.
The show also exposes these wonderful bears to a brand new audience who then become avid collectors themselves.
As the show only has a limited number of bears available when they sell out these new collectors go searching for stockists on the internet and when you Google Charlie Bears Nana’s Teddies comes up prominently in the search results, so as you can see by promoting the show we are gaining new customers and helping to keep Charlie Bears growing as one of the best teddy bear makers in the world.

The show presents a mixture of bears that are exclusive to TVSN and also showcases many new designs that are available through us.

So you get to see the bears from the comfort of your living room and you have the choice to either buy from them or come back to us for the great service we always deliver to you.
Remember we will always match or better their on air prices and still give you your members discounts plus combined subsidised postage if you are buying more than one bear - So you have the best of both worlds.

Rob and the bears will be on the TVSN show that will air this Sunday 2nd November at 4.30pm
with 2 more shows on Thursday 13th Nov at 1.30pm and on Friday 14th Nov at 12.30pm
