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!

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

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,
