December's Winner: Caroline's Flower Shoppe in Islip, New York

If you're a subscriber to our newsletter, then you're automatically added to our monthly drawing. This month's winner is Jane, owner of Caroline's Flower Shoppe in Islip, New York.

Caroline's

Though her shop is located on the populous Long Island, by the looks of it, Caroline's Flower Shoppe has the look and feel of any small town florist. Jane's reviews are numerous and virtually all of them are five stars, and she has many customers that have been doing business with her for over ten years!

She won a case of our new Valentine's Day Bear Assortment, the V717. We're sure her customers will love it as much as we do.

Our Open House for Local Customers Drew a Crowd

Not too long ago, we hosted a big open house for our local customers here at our headquarters near downtown Dallas. It drew customers as far away as San Antonio (275 miles away) and Plainview (350 miles away), so maybe it was more than just local!

Everyone who came got served breakfast or lunch, and got their picture taken with our mascot. We had drawings for free plush as well. But the best part was meeting so many of our customers that we've only interacted with over the phone or email.

We had so much fun, we'll probably have another open house next year.

Ad Agency, Ogilvy, Turns Our Bears into Glorious Holiday Decorations

Each year around the holidays, world renown advertising agency, Ogilvy, transforms their lobby into a holiday spectacular. For the past several years, they transform our wholesale teddy bears into Christmas and other holiday decorations. This year they opted for a dreidel to go with their snow white Christmas tree!  Below that picture are a few of our favorites, mostly using our red and white Colorama Bears. You can check out more at their lobby page.

After the festivities, the bears are taken down and donated to a children's hospital. What a way to end the year!

Happy Holidays,
