Only a few days left for International posting

9th December is the last recommended day (to get there for Christmas) for posting airmail parcels to USA or Russia.  It is 5th December for my Australian and Japanese customers.  If any of you are thinking of ordering one of my bears please do not leave it too late.
For the UK I could use one of the later, signed for services that would be available until the week before Christmas.

I have had a lot of viewings on Etsy and my website (this now includes a page of my handmade Pud Bears). So if you have been looking and trying to decide which bear you want, please jump in there quickly before someone else does.
Here is a 'Top Ten' selection of the bears/dogs/cats that have been seeing a lot of interest recently

At number 10, Blue knitted bear from Pud Bears

9 - Sailor Bill, avintage Chiltern bear

8 - Henry, a vintage Chiltern Boxer pup SOLD

7 - KayBee, a vintage Knickerbocker bear from USA

6 - Kat, a Hermann cat complete with box and tags

5 - Cassie, a vintage Chiltern dog SOLD

4 - Tiny, a vintage Hermann or Steiff kitten SOLD

3 - Hairy Harry, a new 7" Pud Bear

2 - Jimbo, a vintage floppy little bear - Now sold

....and at number 1 - Ted Bear, a new 4.5" Pud Bear

I keep thinking that I must get some Sock Monkeys made up.  I have some really pretty socks to use, one pair are over the knee ones so will make a very lanky monkey.
I have two family orders to make so will have to get the sewing machine out very soon.  Here are a selection of the socks (the over the knee ones are the rainbow coloured at the bottom of the photo).

...and here is an idea of how they might look made up
**This one is sold
The price will be £9.50 for a standard size monkey (the larger over the knee one will be £14.50).

If any of these items are of interest to you I can be contacted via the form on the introduction page of my website


  1. Love your bears, all so beautifully restored. The sock monkey is rather cute too, but alas no grand-children to buy for.

  2. Cavaliers and stuffed toys?!! Does it get any better?
