I was really impressed with their photos too. Not sure what I have done differently but I have managed to block out all of the background giving a very professional look. (well I think so anyway).

The vintage bears are proving popular and a good talking point at my Alby Crafts Sunday shop.
I am now taking old soft toys and vintage bears for mending and restoration. As long as they are not too damaged as I am not experienced enough for major restoration work. Eyes, ears and rejointing is fine, but I wouldn't feel comfortable to do patching or limb replacement to valuable old bears yet.
One of the bears and the puppy dog have found new homes after having some work done a clean up.
I find it to be a satisfying feeling to make these old toys look good again, and hope they are going to homes where they will be loved and admired for many more years.
