Steiff Bears Flurrie, the 2008 Swarovski Bear Has Arrived

We are pleased to announce here at Beacon's Glow Collectibles that we have received in the very special Steiff Bears 2008 Swarovski Bear named Flurrie. This piece, incidentally, is an exclusive distribution by Steiff Retailers in 2008.

This is the fifth historic collaboration between Steiff and Swarovski. Steiff, renowned around the world for their German hand-made teddy bears, and Swarovski, renowned around the world for their crystal pieces, make a great team.

This year's bear features the snowflake-shaped Swarovski 2008 annual edition ornament. The bear itself is 10 inches tall and made of silvery-blue tipped mohair. It makes a wonderful gift item or a festive addition to your holiday decor.

Quantities are quite limited to the year 2008, so please order yours before these incredible bears are gone.

Marie Osmond Too Sweets Tots Now Complete

Beacons Glow Collectibles received in the rest of Marie Osmond's Too Sweets Tots dolls and that completes the set. (Well, with the exception of the retailer exclusive but we still have not heard anything from Marie Osmond Dolls on that quite yet. . . )

The new Marie Osmond Too Sweets Tots that came in just the other day are:

1. Marshmallow Cream
2. Peanut Butter
3. Lemon Cream
4. Turtle
5. Swiss Chocolate
6. Raspberry Cream

QVC had previously advertised these dolls with a 2-tier white candy dish plate to sit the dolls on, but some of our customers have informed us that these plates are no longer in stock. Might we suggest a nice Lenox 2-Tier candy dish plate as a replacement? The dolls should look and fit quite nicely on this substitute.

Please stay tuned for that Marie Osmond Too Sweets Tot retailer exclusive. . . .
