Better Late than Never Halloween Items

Fortunately, we have received in both Halloween Boyds Bears and a Halloween Marie Osmond Doll before Halloween. But unfortunately, there is probably not enough time to get it to you by Halloween this Saturday.

For those of you who have been waiting for the following we thought we should get this out to you.

Both Boyds Bears CC Sugarbeary and Shadow McBoo have arrived and are ready to order.

Additionally, the highly anticipated Marie Osmond QVC Exclusive Doll that became available to retailers in very small quantities is now ready to order also. This full porcelain cutie is named 'Adora Spell Belle' and is dressed in a colorful Halloween witche's outfit.

Our apologies for the late arrival of these Halloween items but we just received them from our manufacturers (Boyds Bears and Marie Osmond Dolls).

Boyds Bears New Boydsville Village Collection

Boyds Bears has recently introduced a new miniature resin line named Boydsville Village. This new collection features a miniature village where Boyds Bears live, work and play. . .

According to Boyds: "Where every morning, you can hear the church bells echo through the valley and the streets come alive with laughter from children making their way to school. Where just a short ways out of town, farmers tend to their fields and the aroma of freshly baked apple pie fills the fresh country air."

Over time we will meet more members of the Boydsville Community - the merchants along Main Street in town, Boydsville's wealthiest folks living high in the hills in mansions that have stood for generations, and folks with simpler needs, finding comfort and shelter in their cozy lil homes nestled in the Boydsville countryside.

Each Boydsville Village piece has a removable roof and floor and whimsical sculpted messages inside every rooftop. Each is also intricately detailed and has a removable miniature Boyds Bear character inside. All are hand-painted and hand-numbered in 3600 piece editions.

We have received in the first four of this brand new Boydsville Village Collection:

1. Mr. and Mrs. Sitaspell's Ol Grey Farm House 4015170
2. Pastor John's Woodland Church 4015169
3. Mrs. Applesworth's School of Book Learnin 4015171
4. Farmer Jed's Big Red Bard 4015172

Each resin piece is anywhere from 3 inches to 4-3/4 inches tall.

Additionally, we have in stock the Boydsville Village Sign (4015168) that looks great displayed in front of your Boydsville Village Collection.

Boyds Bears 2009 Limited Edition Bearstone

Late Friday we received in the 2009 Limited Edition Bearstone by Boyds Bears named 'The Haymaker Family. . . Simple Pleasures, Lasting Memories'. This incredible piece measures more than 13 inches long and comes from a limited edition of 5000 pieces.

The Haymakers share an afternoon of family fun in one of Boyds Bears most elaborate designs to date. This family of six makes their way through hill and dale in an old fashioned wooden resin hay wagon led by their faithful friend. Seven intricately sculpted figurines include Ma and Pa Haymaker with their brood of four and trusty steed.

No details has been overlooked with this Bearstone from the weathered wood slats and nails on the hay wagon to each strand of straw hat.

The stamp on the bottom reads 'We do not remember days, we remember moments'.

We expect this limited edition Bearstone to sell out quite quickly. As we most of our Boyds resin pieces, all of The Haymaker Family Bearstones are 1E editions.

Additional Snowbabies Have Arrived

We are continuining to receive in additional Snowbabies by Department 56. The most recent shipment from yesterday contains many cute Christmas ornaments as well as many from this year's special "Polar Bear Express" Snowbabies Exploration Collection.

To commemorate the 100th anniversary of American explorers that traversed the North Pole during 1909, the collection was inspired by the scenes and characters of the far North.

Featured items received from this Collection so far include:
Baby in the Hood
Hop on Board
Snuggle Babies ornaments

We expect that the popularity of Snowbabies will increase once the colder weather sets in, as well as the holiday season. Snowbabies convey a preponderance towards the cooler winter months. And, it looks like most of us will have cold winters this year. . . .
