So...i love old bears, and a couple of months ago I bought two big old bears, one a big old Chiltern...and one a very old bear on ebay.
They were both quite dirty and dusty, so I decided to have them restored by a TOTALLY FANTASTIC Teddy Bear Repairer in Virginia, Martha Anderson. (Is it okay to mention her name?)
Anyway, here are the results: The first is the Chiltern before and after (she had to restuff his neck and give him a good overall clean). Look at the difference in color!
What do you think??? I am totally excited about how they came out. Woohooo!
I'll post the second bear tomorrow. :0)
