Whoo hoo! We are so excited about all the new stuff! The web site is so cute after the extreme makeover. Valerie is working on it in some way every day - there's so much behind the scenes - it's keeping her hoppin'.

Can you believe it? It is already the end of August. Summer is almost over - and cooler weather is just around the corner. And with that cooler weather comes event season, when there is always something going on at or around the shop. On Saturday, 9/6, the downtown area celebrates Teddy Bear Day. Go to for all the details. We will be having drawings for some great goodies at the shop. Oh - be sure to watch Good Morning Arizona on Thursday - we'll be on t.v. talking about Teddy Bear Day and all the fun stuff that will be going on that day.

New in the shop this week -
From Boyds - a great new bear that looks like mink!
From Steiff - the little meerkat - oh my gosh - so cute!

Linda's pick - Rough Rider from Steiff - really a fantastic looking piece.
Valerie's pick - the mouse from Hansa - who knew she had a secret love for rodents?

This has been a long time coming - a new web site - a better way to get our news out - an easier way to see what we have at the shop - and as an added bonus, this blog! Thanks to Lisa at Izabe Graphics for doing her magic!
