Meet a Bear Monday

Hello Blogging Buddies & Bear Lovers,
I am posting this "Meet a Bear Monday"
earlier than usual, since most people
don't stay up half the night!

I bought this bear at the fleamarket
in Canton, TX, called "First Monday
Trade Days," a few years ago. If
you haven't heard of this fleamarket,
you are missing out on a HUGE one. We
used to go to it a lot and now we go a few
times a year. It is so big that you can't
see it in one day, more like 3 or 4 days!
Anyway, back to the bear....I think he
is handmade and he is jointed, even his
head turns. He is holding an old school
book.....Any suggestions on what I should
name him? Poor guy has been sitting
around with out a name a few years now,
so, I think he should have a name, don't
you? Also, the chair he is sitting on, I
got a couple weeks ago in an antique mall
in Texas for $15....I couldn't believe the
price on it! I had seen one earlier in
another mall with orange paint on it and
they wanted $45 for it. I didn't like the
color and I wasn't going to strip it. This
one is made of oak and I thought it was
a steal at that price. Well, that is it for
tonight, I need to fix my hubby some
supper! Take care ya'll.....

  1. That fleamarket must be awesome...exhausting for sure, but awesome nevertheless. :)
    What a great deal on the chair.
    I can't think of a name. I can't wait to see what everyone else says.
    Happy Bear Monday Karen!

  2. Hi Karen-what a fantastic find your chair is!!! Wow, I love it. I think your bear looks like an "Albert". LOL I just went and looked that name up and this is what it says:

    Albert means Noble and Bright, and the origin is English.

    Well, what do you think???

    Bear Hugs,

  3. Nice bear and chair. Love First Monday Trade Days in Canton! It has really grown and changed since I first started going years ago. My favorite part is the wooded area beside the civic center. That's where I find the best bargins.


I love reading your comments, it makes my day!
Please stop by often.
