30th Anniversary Giveaway

As a way of saying thanks for all the good times and support from so many of you through the years, I am having a giveaway! The prize is this little bear I call Isaac. He is just shy of 5 inches tall and shows he has been quite loved over an imagined 30 years of companionship. If you would like to add your name to the drawing, leave a comment on this post and I will enter you. In a short two weeks, I will randomly draw a name from all the entries. Then he will be on his way to spend the holidays in his new home!

Thank you and best of luck!

News and Stuff

It’s been a very busy few weeks with lots of bear things to share. I’ll begin with the show that took place in Hunt Valley, Maryland on November 8th. It was a Holiday themed show so there were a lot of festively adorned tables and bears. Today I am posting photos I took of most of the tables there.  Sebastian was excited that Ashton came to visit him again so I had to take a quick snapshot of them together.  Also, I have finished the bear for my 30th Anniversary Giveaway.  I didn’t forget!  I’ll be sharing his/her photo soon right here on bearbits.

This is my table.  I was going for a vintage/retro teal and red Christmas theme. 

As to the other tables, there were a lot of them.  It was a really good show, so if you’ve a mind to go next year, don’t hesitate.   You won’t be disappointed!

Cindy McGuire – China Cupboard Bears
Cindy never fails to disappoint – lots to charm  you on this table.

Ben and Beth Savino – The Toy Store

More.  It was a long, long table!

As you can see, even at this point not all the items were on the shelves!

Art Rogers – Chatham Village Bears
So many characters with so much personality – as always.

John Paul Port – The Port Collection
We were excited that John was able to attend all the way from the other coast!

Dottie Ayers – The Calico Teddy

Annette Carmen – Charlie’s Bears

Allen Hsu – Teddy Bear Barn
I’m not sure how Allen manages all he has going on with traveling overseas to shows and teaching classes as well.  Nice job!

Pat Johnson – Teddies of Mt. Holly

Elizabeth Taylor – Elizabeth Taylor Studio
Just a small peak at a portion of her table.

Diana Lee Palomba – Timeless Expressions

Shelia Westerfield – Bears with a Heart

Marty Bumala – Waverly Crossing Bears

Darlene Allen – Raspbeary Bears

Penny French – Back Mountain Bears

Pam Kisner – The Bear Maker

And last, but not least, is Sebastian with his friend Ashton.  Ashton has been on bearbits before and it is always a thrill when they can meet up and catch up with what’s new since they were last together.  As for the lighted Christmas drum, I have a scant few photos of it in progress so I’ll post those next.

As always, thanks for stopping by.  I hope you enjoyed this virtural tour of the show!

Until next time,
