Big welcome to Teddy Talk, Jenn!! We have been needing more collectors here to give a different perspective on the teddy bear industry. So glad you will be trying the "other" side, too, as in bear making! Good luck . . . if you are like the rest of us, making bears will become your passion!!
Hi Jenn, and welcome. Where are you in California? I'm in Chico, but from the SF bay area, and schooled in SoCal at UCLA, so I guess I've got a bit of most everywhere in California in me.
Have you put yourself on the World Map here, yet?
Looking forward to getting some collector perspective on the bear market.
