Charlie Bears Closing for Summer Break

It is quite refreshing to know that some companies still take the time and initiative to give all employees a summer break.  That is the case with Charlie Bears in the UK.  The Bearhouse (as they call it) will close from June 19 - July 6.

We will be receiving in one more shipment before that time and we expect many more collectible bears and critters to ship towards the end of July and well into the August time frame.

These are the bears that will be arriving next week before the summer shutdown:

Raglan BB153040A
Rainbow CB159047S

Please stay tuned!

Eyes of Texas Dolls to Expand Offerings

Brenda Mize, Owner of Beacon's Glow Collectibles and Eyes of Texas Dolls, will soon be creating 14 inch doll with cloth bodies.  As with her 12-inch dolls currently for sale, she will be using the famous Dianna Effner doll molds.  Dianna is an amazing sculptor and the faces on all of her dolls are both endearing, innocent, and sweet.

This is a new endeavor for Brenda but she is certainly up to the challenge.  Instead of solid bodies, these dolls will have a cloth body with armature for posing.

Additionally, research is currently being made to create dresses for these dolls as well.

Please stay tuned!

(Pictured above are 3 of Brenda's favorite Eyes of Texas Dolls).
