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 nose, that is then waxed. They have cotton paws and are sympathetically and carefully aged to give them a vintage and worn look. Your special bear will have a sewn in tag, a swing tag with all his details, and will be signed by me. 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.
