The Old Post Office Bears

Artist Bears Designed by Dawn Jellis-Jones

 Bears for Adoption

About the Bears

All my little bears are loosely and fully jointed. Each one is filled with polyester and heavily weighted with steel shot and comes with traditional black glass eyes and a stitched and waxed nose, They have cotton paws and are sympathetically and carefully aged to give them a vintage and worn look. The bears clothes are usually made from vintage fabrics and I always source genuine antique lace.  You will also find that I add Victorian and Edwardian accessories to give your bear an authentic feel. Your special bear will have a sewn in tag, and a swing tag with all his or her important details,  You will also find I sign every swing tag on the back.  Your special bear will arrive packaged with care in tissue and placed in a box.

Please Note

All background accessories are not include with your bear unless otherwise stated.
