Meet a Bear Monday

Hello, Bear Lovers!
It is Monday again and time to meet anotherbear....
This is "Kristen T. Beansley" and she is aBoyd's bear.
She is stuffed with beans or pellets,I don't know which....
She has "Gold Edition" on one of her feet. Only "Gold"
dealers could sell her....There were different labels for
dealers, gold, platinum,silver and I don't know what else.
I don't know what all the labels are for, maybe it was by how
many they stocked, or ordered, or sold. For those of you
that don't know anything about Boyd's, they have a huge
barn full of bears and friends for sale in Gettysburg,
Pennsylvania! It is quite the place to see! They built one
in Tennessee, but I guess they closed it about a year, or so,
after they opened it.
Here she is laying on her wicker lounge yearning
for summer and a cool glass of lemonade!
She says it is getting a little warm in here, will
someone bring me a glass of lemonade, please???

Well, it's not going to be me! I have to let the
cat in and out all the time, I draw the line on
waiting on the bears!!! I wouldn't have any time
for blogging if I had to wait on all the bears around
here.....Geeze, you have to have some priorities,
don't you???

Well, I guess I better get something done around here!
Also, I would like to thank those who left such nice
compliments about my granddaughter! I forgot to tell
you all that she also has a job, so she is very busy, between
the job and studying!

I hope you all have a great week and thanks for stopping by
and making my blog a part of your day, whether you leave
a comment or not. I so appreciate all of my new friends that
have signed on to read my blog; a big thank you to all!

Until next time~

  3. Karen I love Kristen =0} Hmmmm maybe our Boyds could have a play date lol......I love Boyds they are the only ones I still collect. Will have to post or email you some pics of mine. I used to be an any kind of bear collector. Anything with a bear on it or a bear made out of it lol I wanted it. I ran out of room and weeded my collection down significantly. Anyway Thanks for lettin' us meet Kristen =0}

  4. Kristen is as pretty as a picture and perfect in her pretty outfit. I can give you some inside into the Gold-Platinum thing. It is the status that a retailer achieved after a certain dollar amount of purchase from Boyds Bears. This made them eligible for exclusives. Hope that helps. Now you are lucky to even find a retailer that sells Boyds!! I have a funny story to tell...but too long to post today here in the comments I will share that happened just the other day with Boyds.

    Bear Hugs,
    Carol :O]


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