Well said to you all. We all should work together in keeping the "Bear Shows" going, there are not too many left. It is way different then a doll/bear show. (i have this black cat in front of screen watching me type). We work to make this treasure of a love bear for someone special and do spend time talking to that collector. I know times are tough and money is tight but there still are collectors out there and they are spending less money, but looking for that special one.
As working with the promoter for Teddy Bear Convention Nevada City Ca i don't look at it as work, but a real pleasure and joy to bring all artist (and new ones too) together with new and old collectors. Collectors are still looking for that special loving bear.
The Show use to be 3 days but for next year we have changed the days to Friday and Saturday. Its a catch 22 for Friday or Sunday.
You can contact me by email for an application or any questions and thanks. Be on the positive side about all Bear Shows!!
I encourage everyone to consider joining us next year at the Teddy Bear Convention Nevada City Ca April 9-10, 2010 :hug:

Maybe one day i'll get out and travel further...like southern california...traffic i do not like.
Hope to see lots of you bear artists that attended San Diego Bear Show to come to Nevada City Teddy Bear Convention on April 4-6, 2008. Its our 25th year, just click on the vendor site and download an application and mail it in.
Lots of bear hugs to all
Don't forget, by doing Bear Shows it gets you out of the house, meeting people, socializing with other artists and bear collectors. Good airing out. I find i have lots of time to work in my sewing room...i think it is my hiding place. Somewhere down the road...the wash..dishes..cleaning house gets done sooner or later.
