those collectors of vintage and antique bears, I have created a new
adventure just for you, "Old Bears on the Move". Here you will find
a variety of older bears, vintage bears, and their pals looking to
relocate. These loving old pals are looking forward to a new home.
On occasion you will find a doll or doll related item as well. Dolls
and bears display well together and make great companions. Feel free
to email firstname.lastname@example.org
with any inquiries or requests for additional photos of the item you
are interested in. I am always looking to buy early old bears,
condition not necessarily important, for my own collection (those
your grandma may have had as a childhood toy). Bears with a story to
tell are my favorite. contact me if there is something you may be
willing to part with!

Small Vintage Steiff Squirrel. Neat little piece with lots of
possibilities for display. $50.00 plus shipping
Pipe cleaner bear - I’ve had him for some time and keep him
in a cabinet. He’d much prefer to tag along on someone’s outfit. Can
you give this vintage bear pin a home? At about 2 ˝" he’ll sit
proudly on your blouse or jacket and view the world through his
googly glass eyes. Also would be perfect pinned to a bear in color.
He is made of Chenille type pipe cleaner in nice aged color. $38.00
plus reasonable shipping
Oh Shucks! I’m just a Bitty Teddy! Any room at your place?

young at heart, with much mileage left. Little German Schuco bear
with old ribbon remnant slightly scruffy mohair in great gold patina
$98.00 plus reasonable shipping
Here is an item from my collection one that I have enjoyed.
It is a doll head surrounded by a heart I have a few of them. The
head wears a hat. Silk ribbon adorn the piece and probably at one
time it hung from the ribbon on the wall. I would not try it today
however. The heart and hat are composed of pink wool and some
discoloration (never bothered me) from age is present. Another one
of my novelty type items I am willing to part with. Approximately
10" from top of hat to bottom of heart. 295.00 plus insured
This is an amazing piece from my own collection. I have a thing for
the unusual and novelty items. I have two almost identical muffs so
I will part with one. This is an American child’s bear muff from
around 1907. The original string for around the neck is still
present. He wears an old silk ribbon around his neck. This wonderful
little guy has many stories to share but tells me they are all a
secret. Perhaps you can add him to the collection of your own and
see if he shares some fabulous stories from years gone by. I bought
him a few years back and paid dearly "not bearly". He is being sold
for $800.00 plus the cost of shipping and insurance.
Just an awesome early monkey with curbside appeal. This little guy
is made of felt and fabric. He has a hard body and was once a wind
up toy meant to flip. It appears his flipping on his own days have
ended. He wears his original clown outfit that suits him just fine.
He is a small fellow at about 4". For those monkey enthusiasts this
is just the greatest little find. $175.00 plus reasonable shipping.
Meet Little Kitty a small vintage mohair kitten. This gal has
been around for quite awhile she is American made by Character. She
has shoe button eyes with green felt backing. The mohair has faded
over time and was once a gray to lavender color. This gal has sat in
my cabinet for years and peered out. She has now made up her mind to
travel. I have seen many bears by Character but never this small
size cat. I wanted to put a bow on for her portrait shot but decided
it was better to show here mohair wear near her neck. $30.00 plus
Here it’s your option for only one baby or three. They’d love to
find a new home. These darling little compo babies were made around
1930. Each has a dress and diaper all are matching. Arms and legs
are jointed. Each has a bit of wear from age but not bad at all.
They are a great way to accessorize your dolls and bears. Your
choice at $20.00 each baby. There is a 10% discount if you purchase
all three. Plus the cost of reasonable shipping. Only one left.

Leo the lion is one of Schuco’s Noah’s Ark Series. A little
guy with a big growl, well maybe. Fits in to most spaces and can be
held by your dolls or bears. Enjoy this half pint addition when

This is an antique doll pincushion. Most of these were hand
made by mom or grandma using what was left of the child’s toy. Her
body and cap are made of a fabric that appears to be a silk blend.
She has a silk accent ribbon around the middle. A few old pins
accompany her. She is stuffed with what feels like Kapok. A
cardboard form at the base keeps her up. This comes from my own
collection of sewing novelty items. I have not had her apart but her
head appears perfect. Her eyes are dark brown glass. She stands 7 ˝"
in height. Add this wonderful piece of history to your sewing or
doll collection! $165.00 plus $8.00 insured shipping.
50% off sale on this Dutch Couple
Here is a cute little Dutch couple. You don’t always find the pair.
The girls are far more prevalent than the boys. Since I have a son,
I am always looking for boy dolls. These are old dolls and have
never been played with. When I acquired them, they were attached to
a cardboard (what was left of their original box) I found them hard
to display so I took them off. They wear a traditional costume with
the wooden shoes. Their bodies are somewhat bendable. Faces are
painted and the girl has mohair under her bonnet. They are
approximately 6" in height. A reasonable price for two dolls at
$75.00 plus $8.00 shipping.
