In 1996 Lily was born. Literally. The name of my shop is the name of my niece’s daughter. I wanted to give her a keepsake.
I have learned that the number of adult bear collectors is staggering. From my research there is no store dedicated to personalized teddy bears. 85% of my shop is bears. However, after many requests from guests, I have added pigs, frogs, bunnies… Oh my!
Three of us make every boys’ overalls, every dress and everything else you see on our bears. We sew in our homes. I do all the embroidering. We are all from Lancaster County and take pride in the quality, selection and price of our work.
Everyone loves personalized gifts. They make us feel special. From the child to the mother to the grandparents to bear collectors. You can have either just the name of the person receiving the gift or sayings such as “Mom Mom loves Emily.” If I can fit it on the bear, I can make it happen. We carry over 1,200 names at our shop…some quite unique. Stop in. If we do not have the one you need, we’ll make it!
Simple. My hope is to have the item we sell be a keepsake and be handed down through the generations.
