December Newsletter 2012
As most of us are busy with Christmas preparations at this time of year, we thought a shorter letter than usual with no competition would be much more welcome! Firstly, we would like to thank everyone who visited the galleries during our Christmas Open Weekend. We felt the galleries looked absolutely glorious this year and this was certainly the feedback we received from many who attended. All in all it was hugely successful and the attraction of such charming teddies certainly added to the event. Sue Pearson gave two fascinating talks on the subject of teddy collecting which had the audience totally engrossed! We still do have a variety of Steiff , Merrythought and Charley Bears to purchase up until Christmas.
Susan Daniel's name was pulled out of a lovely silver ice pail to become our November Competition winner. Susan was one of many who had guessed correctly the name of Theodore Roosevelt as the person to which we owe the name 'Teddy'. Susan has received a delightful Charley Bear teddy and a £100 gift voucher to spend in the galleries. Congratulations Susan!
Starting in January our competitions will once again need a little more brain power!
Please remember we have many gift ideas in the galleries. Please do look at our website but bear in mind some items may not have made their way online as yet. We also stock the wonderful room fragrance by Dr. Paul Vranjes, an artisan perfumer from Florence.
We wish you all a very Happy Christmas and New Year and thank you for your support over the past year.
Please note; The galleries will be closed from 4.30pm on Saturday 22nd December and will reopen on Monday 7th January 2013.
With best wishes,
Lennox, Sue and all at the galleries.
