Hi Bear Club Members,

white-rabbitSorry this months news is running late but I do have a really good excuse for not getting it out to you last week.

You “see” I was out of action due to cataract surgery and having the lens in my right eye replaced with an artificial one.
The operation seems to have gone well and as the swelling goes down my vision is returning slowly and I can again “see the light”

Having said this the bright light from the computer screen is still quite painful even with sunglasses on indoors so I will use this as a reason for any spelling mistakes and also for any really big discounts that I might offer in my post surgical delirium
Just kidding when have I ever reneged on an offer?

I will however need to keep this month’s news brief as it really is painful to spend too much time in front of the screen.

The good, the bad and the cuddly!

Paw Store LogoNEW PAW STORES ANNOUNCED

Exciting News has just been announced by William and Charlie
that they have launched the new exclusive Paw Stores globally and that Nana’s Teddies & Toys has been invited to be one of a “Pawful” of these very exclusive Charlie Bear stockists.

What is a Paw Store

Paw stores are selected retailers globally who carry the largest range of  Charlie Bears products from every collection released in every year that Charlie Bears still have available, in fact they have again made available some brand new stock of many designs released several years ago that most retailers have sold out of long ago.
As a Paw store we undertake a commitment to carry every Charlie Bear designs still available giving you the widest selection possible.
Paw stores will also carry many exclusive products not available elsewhere and certain secret collection items which are more difficult to find.
secretsOnly a selected number of retailers globally have been accepted as
Paw Stores with a handful in Australia, only these shops can display the exclusive paw store logo

I was very excited earlier this week when our first shipment of Secret Collection Bears arrived.
I wanted to share with you  immediately but was sworn to secrecy until the official announcement was made, the extra good news is that they are now all in our online catalogue and you can purchase one of many Secret Collection designs we have in stock right now,
here is a small selection of them, you can see all available designs by following this direct link to our catalogue

More designs will be added as they arrive
 

 

 

help1COVID HITS HARD

Most people have been impacted to some degree by the horrid Covid outbreak but the effect it is having on retail in general and our Teddy Bear Industry is really causing issues.

The recent lock down meant no visitors to the showroom and since the easing of the lock down we are seeing a lot less visitors than before the outbreak as people are understandably reluctant or unable to travel
Being in a major tourism area has also compounded the problem as we are quite reliant on the tourism trade to keep us viable.

I know we are not alone in this and all teddy stores are also really doing it tough which has had a huge knock on affect to our manufacturers and importers, some have already closed up permanently whilst others are reducing their ranges in an effort to survive. in the hope that sales improve in the not too distant future

 

4xThe only way our industry will survive is to keep retail sales happening that will flow on to the manufacturers as stores restock, this will help to keep all the workers in the industry employed.
So I encourage you to look to the future and maybe help out by starting your Christmas shopping early and consider making a cuddly bear or animal your gifts to friends and family this year.

To help entice you to spend now we will again offer our most popular incentive promotion to you until the end of this month
we will double your members discount on any single item (10% off) buy any two and get triple your normal discount (15% off) and buy any 3 or more and get quadruple your normal discount (20% off)

Simply add all items you select to the inquiry cart and use the promo code SYLVESTER SAYS and we will then apply the appropriate discounts to your order.

 

HOORAY, OUR GERMAN BEARS CAN TRAVEL AGAIN

soner 2019The Covid lock down in Germany not only affected manufacturing with the closure of most factories but when they were allowed to open again they had to work with greatly reduced staff to allow for social distancing.

Shipments were readied for sending to us but due to the grounding of all international flights in and out of Germany the freight companies were not picking up the parcels for export.
This was very frustrating for all our German bear makers who found themselves in the same predicament.... unable to ship.

Well the good news is that at the moment Germany has eased this restriction and they are again able to ship our bears to us

However the horrid virus has also impacted greatly on the world’s economic factors and has really knocked about the exchange rate between the Euro and the Australian dollar, in short this means that at present all new bears coming from Europe will be 30-50% more expensive, we find this quite unacceptable so are holding back on placing any orders at the moment in the hope that the exchange rate improves

THE GOOD NEWS..........
All our German made bears currently in stock are at Pre-Covid prices whilst stocks last making them really excellent value
This includes all Steiff - Hermann Coburg- Teddy Hermann and Clemens Bears

THE EVEN BETTER NEWS.........
You can take advantage of this months extra members discounts on all bears currently in stock, see this months specials for details

 

 

CHARLIE BEARS UPDATE

konigLOTS OF NEW ARRIVALS THIS MONTH
With most designs being produced to their planned production schedules the deliveries are coming thick and fast.
We are currently experiencing some small delays in shipping times as the grounding of airliners globally has pushed a lot more export freight to the docks for shipping by sea, this has slowed down delivery times and with the extra security measures by our customs people adding to the clearance times for containers

All in all Charlie Bears are doing a pretty good job of getting bears to us in a reasonable time

The plush bears that have arrived are

Bunya - Cabbage Rose - Danuta
Konig Tiger - Milo - Olwen
Peregrine Falcon - Rio Toucan

ISABELLE MOHAIR DESIGNS
Due to the reduced allocations to all stockists this year most of the Mohair designs that arrive are all Sold Out on Pre-orders however we do have a few still available for adoption

Pipe Dream - Tomfoolery
Lea Bunny - Bijou Unicorn
we also received the last of our allocations of the following bears but all were Pre-sold with none available for the shelves
Cookie Dough - Dreamgirl
Sugar Plum Fairy

If you have outstanding pre-orders not yet arrived please be patient until we contact you, we do not have arrival dates as yet but we will advise you as soon as we get any information from Charlie Bears.
