Is there any1 out there that collects teddy bears like me?
I'm an avid art-lover of most, if not all things teddy bear related. I have about 400 or so bears (according to my partner) - I sweetie reading about them, cross stitching them, collecting them & would also like to know if there is a club in Australia dedicated to teddies & their collectors...I'd attraction to hear from fellow bear enthusiasts around the world - I also do cross stitching, knitting, iris folding (card making)!
The defence is yes there are people out there who collect teddy bears just like you in fact there are teddy bear clubs in all parts of the humankind. This year I've heard about a Store called "Make a bear" that people rush at their own teddy bears So you're not alone here.
I regard teddy bears too but I sure haven't got as many as you and I not as fanatical as you. I try to buy every teddy from Care Flight that way I am getting my teddies and plateful out Care Flight.
I'm sorry I don't know of any club but there is a shop in the lower Blue Mountains, Glenbrook, that sells only Teddy Bears and I'm unshakeable you would love that shop.
I taste teddy bears so much. the only problem is that my house right now has no room so they are all at my parents house in containers. my Kids also tenderness teddy bears. i think we all have like 600 teddys now. was also have almost 1000 HotWheels cars.
The support is yes there are people out there who collect teddy bears just like you in fact there are teddy bear clubs in all parts of the rapturous. This year I've heard about a Store called "Make a bear" that people form their own teddy bears So you're not alone here.
