3Hi Bear Club Members,

There is an old saying that is still often used today “It’s Raining Cats & Dogs” refers to really heavy down pours of rain and also refers to any event that is really heavy and well above the ordinary.
This month at Nana’s we have our own version of this old saying, we believe “It’s  Raining Teddy Bears” is a much more appropriate saying with the tremendous volume coming through the doors at the moment.

Not only are we receiving all the new stocks we ordered at last months trade fair but Charlie Bears have gotten their act together in a big way and are delivering an unprecedented number of bears in both plush and mohair designs.

 


warehouse bearIn the past 20 days we have received from our suppliers 237 shipping cartons of bears, thats a lot of teddies when you consider that some designs come 30 pieces to the carton.

Many of the Charlie Bears are for members pre-orders so are leaving again to go to their new homes but even more are for stock so our walls are literally bursting at the seams as we try to find shelf space for them all, even our limited warehouse space is unable to take even 1 more small carton so we need to get all our pre-orders delivered to members and reduce our ever expanding stocks.

So please help Kassius to make more room and take advantage of our many specials this month that we have organised to help you adopt more bears.

IMPORTED BEARS TO GET DEARER

B83229_2349796bI hate all the economic changes our economy is going through at the moment, it is making the simple tasks of importing bears so much harder and more costly.

Most new designs need to be ordered several months before they are released and they are ordered based on the exchange rate of the day.
Almost all brands of bears sold in Australia are imported as we have no major manufacturing here at all these days, as such we are getting price increases on a daily basis as the importers are landing new stocks at greatly increased prices based on our Dollar being at a six year low floating about under the .70 cents against the USD.

We are very much aware of the presure on prices as we import most of our Germann & English brands directly with no middle man, we have to pay in Euros and UK Pounds based on the daily exchange rates against the AUD which are now approx 30% lower than when we ordered the bears
Many of our best selling Hermann and Steiff designs are pre-sold to members at a special pre-order price and when the dollar drops so dramatically we stand to lose as much as $60-$70 per bear based on the current landed price.
Not as big an issue if the bear is for stock as we can adjust the retail price accordingly however when we make a pre-order commitment to our members we guarantee their price and do not pass on these increases.

Over the next few months as existing stocks run out Australia will see quite dramatic price increases on most imported products  putting extra pressure on the family Christmas spending budget.
My advice to members is to get in early and take advantage of the existing lower prices on stocks already in store.

As an added incentive we are offering Double Members Discounts
off all Steiff - Hermann & Deans bears currently in stock.

blinkybillBLINKY BILL MOVIE

As a child growing up without the luxury of a television for entertainment my indoor hours were often absorbed by reading for hours on end.

I would read almost anything with an adventure story line to it but I recall very fondly the Adventures of Blinky Bill, he was one of my heros as he roamed about the bush getting into all sorts of mischeif with his friends.

So I am very pleased to finally see this new movie being released and to celebrate this we are offering ALL our Koalas at a special discount until the 30th September, sadly none of the manufacturers have created a Blinky Bill from the movie but a very small stretch of the imagination could make any of our wonderful Koalas into “Blinky”

WORLDS LONGEST REIGNING MONARCH
Queen for emailOn the 9th of September Queen Elizabeth II became the "longest reigning monarch" in British History and broke the record of Queen Victoria.

To celebrate this historic event Hermann have created a very limited edition collectable special Celebration Bear to remember this date, we have secured a limited number for our members.

This 36cm bear will be known as “The Queen - longest reigning monarch" Celebration Bear.
Made of luxurious German Mohair with traditional excelsior stuffing and fitted with a teddy growler voice this bear has all the expected quality and design elements we have come to expect from Hermann.
Adorned with genuine Swarovski Crystal elements and fine embroidery she really is a stunning looking bear.

A worldwide Limited Edition 250 pieces will ensure her collectability and we are certain she will sell out very quickly.

Our first shipments have arrived and the balance has just left Germany, we have a small number still available at $359
but be quick as they are almost gone.

CHARLIE BEARS UPDATE

WE HAVE SHIPPED A RECORD NUMBER OUT THIS MONTH
Ursula - CB151573 e stockist (2)
With Charlie Bears catching up on their back orders really fast we have had a record number of bears arriving and also leaving again over the past few weeks.

We have been working flat out to contact all members with new arrivals, get their bears packed for the journey home and get them out as soon as possible in an attempt to take the strain off our very overful warehouse.

Plenty of new and old designs have filled our showroom to capacity with teddies peeking out of evey available nook and cranny.

So the good news is that we are well stocked and ready to serve you with all your requests with the largest number of designs we have ever held at one time, the bad news is that some of the arrivals are the last shipment we will ever get of these designs so when they are gone...... thats it, no more to be had.

The plush bears that have arrived this month are;

Befuddle - Bridie - Chiswick - Giselle
Greystoke - Jubbley - Kassius - Mabel
Mumbles - Niall - Oodles - Savannah
Scarecrow - Scooby - Tallulah - Tango
and the magnificently big Ursula Polar Bear

ISABELLE MOHAIR DESIGNS
Stirling - SJ5373 e (2) stockist
More stocks have arrived of the 2015 mohair Isabelle Collection, a number of these designs sold out completely as pre-orders and numbers available to us were way under what we would have hoped for, we have been hopeful that Charlie Bears might get a few cancellations on the most popular designs like Frost and Cosey Toes however this is seeming more and more unlikely as time goes on.
We do have very limited quantities of many of the new designs still available if you are quick, check our Mohair in stock category for any you are interested in.

The Mohair bears that have arrived this month are;

Cagney - Chortle - Downey - Flossy
Flummadiddle - Hermione - Hoglet
Newton - Ritz - Russet - Scampeteer
Snax - Stirling - Tibbles - Treetop
Trumpette - Whiffy Skunk

If you have pre-orders not appearing on this list 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.

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...
