Here are a few snapshots from various locations throughout the show. If I have information to go along with them, I’ll add a caption.
This is a partial view of the room where my table was.
It could have been a show all by itself.
After seeing bears on the Internet for so long, I found myself surprised over and over again at how incredibly small many of my favorites were in person.
Now in my opinion these bears are wonderful. Really wonderful.
Expertly made. Loads of detail – beautiful. But in person, wow! They are incredible

This is Sebastian happily posing for size comparison. He is a mere 6 inches tall and don’t tell him, but he looks like a giant here!
This a view of the big room. Oh my. There was so much to look at. If I were a visitor and not an exhibitor, I would have come early and stayed until they closed the doors.
Now for The Great Grilled Cheese Sandwich Adventure
The day before the show, we went in search of a famous grilled cheese sandwich. Yeah, crazy I know. The way we look at it is getting there is half the fun. We always see things we would otherwise miss if we weren’t going down some crazy path.
So the grilled cheese part was the end of the journey but the adventure was in wandering around new-to-us parts of London in search of Borough Market where this particular grilled cheese sandwich is made only on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays. So, as you can see, we had a limited window.
We found the market after a bit – you know turning left when you should turn right. Then going back and retracing your steps. After finding the market we then had to find this particular vendor among the seemingly endless numbers of stalls with all kinds of delicious looking food.
Eventually we found the place. If we hadn’t seen the sign “Kappacasein” we surely would have seen the line.
It was almost comical seeing people standing in line salivating at the prospect of finally getting this cheese sandwich in their hands. We found ourselves among them.
Was it worth it? Most definitely!
