Happy New Year Everyone! December 29 2015
I do hope everyone enjoyed the holiday weekend. We ate and drank too much as usual, but had a wonderful time. I've just done a stock take of all the Teds that I keep in little shop units locally and am now having a massive clear out!
I've altered the look of the Home Page and responded to those who find the site hard to navigate. Now you just click on "View Teddy Collections and Teddy Bears for Sale" and all the sections appear in alphabetical order. The "Teds for Sale" sit next to the Museum Collection Teds in each section, eg "Chad Valley", "Chad Valley for Sale" etc. Hope that's easier!
200 Years of Childhood. The London International Antique Doll, Teddy Bear and Toy Fair. The Pillar Hall, Olympia. November 19th 20th 2016
Thank you to all of you who are supporting our new fair next November at The Pillar Hall, Olympia. We certainly seem to have fitted into a niche which has not been filled for a while. All our stands have sold apart from four. The seminars and the dinner are filling up and the discounted rooms at the Olympia Hilton Hotel are proving very popular. Do get in touch if you would like the link to the hotel rooms. We are beginning to put the exhibition guide together and it looks good. There are some interesting articles by our seminar speakers and the adverts are very much in keeping with the antique feel.
Our next project will have a Teddy Bear bias, will be set in a beautiful country estate and will be in the summer of 2017. Watch this space!
I wish everyone a very Happy and Healthy New Year!
