What A Collection

I recently attended an auction not knowing that that there was an entire collectible bear collection that would be auctioned off. I've always had a thing for these really cute collectible bears, but since I've collected antiques over the years I felt like I shouldn't spend the extra money on yet another collection. But boy did I hit it big time. When the bears finally came up to be auctioned off I bought 4 of them one at $10.00, another at $20.00, $5.00 and one at $3.00 and then the auctioneer asked if anyone would open the bid at $75.00 for the ENTIRE collection and my hand flew up quickly. Well I ended up getting all of the bears left which was most of them for $120.00 with the $120.00 and the other money I spent for the first ones the total came to $158.00. Now I'll quit typing and let you check out these cuties!











This large bear is one of my favorites!








Hope you enjoyed. Have a wonderful day. I'm off now to take somethings to my sweet friend Laurie of Laurie Anna's Vintage Home. Any one headed to Canton this weekend?

I love your bear collections so much! Congratulations on the great deal. If I would have been there I would have been bidding too. I have about 200 bears in my collection but yours are by far cuter. Mine were all gifts or bought on vacations and hold alot of memories for me.

That's a quick collection. There's just something about teddy bears that bring a smile to your face.
