Photos from the Hunt Valley Christmas Teddy Bear Show – Part 1

Before we headed off to the teddy bear show, I received instructions to take lots of photos. Now we are back and I can show them. I can’t wait for you to get a glimpse of what we saw! In fact, I took so many that I think it will be best if I share them in two parts.

At the show each of my fellow artists created festive displays in keeping with the holiday theme.

The selection of bears and friends was amazing- so much to see.

If you ever decide to visit a teddy bear show on the East coast, the Hunt Valley Christmas Teddy Bear show should definitely be on your list.

I tried to take photos of as many of the tables as I could manage before the show started.

Then I went around a little later and took some more.

I hope you will enjoy looking through these pictures.

Of course, I did a little browsing while I was walking around because how could I accurately report on the show without a thorough investigation of the teddy bears available?

I purposely left these photos of Felicia’s display a little larger so you can click on them for a chance to peruse all the lovely bears and friends made by artists from around the world.

I think this is where I will stop for part two. And, lest some of you wonder where in world Sebastian was in all of this, I have to tell you he had a good bit of fun as well. He is looking forward to telling you about his experience. Stay tuned! More photos in Part 2 to come!

Thanks so much for stopping by!

  5. Ginger,
    Why didn't you show us a large shot of your table? I would have liked to have seen it better. It was nice to see the other bears, but YOU are MY favorite bear artist.

  6. I love seeing the different ways everyone decorates their tables. That is such a pretty little tree on yours (and adorable bears, of course)! Looking forward to part 2!

    1. Hi Kay Joy,

      It is fun to see how other people decorate and everyone had their own take on it. Some were pretty ingenious.

      That little tree has seen several Christmases but when I decided on the blue and silver. . . Bingo! That was a no-brainer - just had to add the silver jingle bells and it fit in perfectly.

      Thanks so much!
