Plush in a Rush News & Notes

White Plains Florist Has Been Serving Customers for Over 40 Years

A beautiful flower shop in a beautiful town...

One of our newer customers, White Plains Florist, recently purchased our bears for Valentine's Day.

Susana chose a nice assortment of bears including some of our lighter-colored everyday bears, plus a bud hugger, as well as one of our larger Valentine bears.

Susanna sent us a photo of our V1523 perched on top of a white pedestal. We'd be surprised if it's still for sale!

White Plains Florist maintains an elegant layout at their store on Westchester Avenue, in the heart of the city.


Thanks for being a customer! Be sure to check out White Plains Florist's Facebook page for some great pictures of their store and products.

Featured Customer: The Jeweled Leaf in Buffalo, Iowa

Just a few yards away from the Mighty Mississippi...

Jessica is owner and operator of a lovely situated flower shop located a block away from the Mississippi River in Buffalo, Iowa. Founded only a year ago in 2018, The Jeweled Leaf is off to a running start, with its Facebook page alive with plenty of colorful and bedazzling photos of fresh flowers and plants. 

Jessica purchased some stuffed animals from us for Valentine's Day and was kind enough to share with us a picture of our wholesale plush teddy bears "in action."  🐻

Her customers can even buy our bears directly from her site, which is always great to see our customers doing.

We wish Jessica, The Jeweled Leaf the best of luck in business this upcoming year!

Don Rogers Fantasy & Illusion Promotes His Brand with Plush Tigers

So many of our customers are gift shops and flower shops, and we're always pleased when folks like Don Rogers Fantasy & Illusion uses our plush to promote his successful business.

Don started doing birthday parties and small shows since age 12. At age 16, he became the youngest known person to make a full size airplane vanish in front of a live audience! By 18, Don was touring New York State performing hundreds of shows per year.

Don uses our white tigers as part of a promotional gift basket. Thanks Don for helping make them disappear! :-D

Grandma Crafts Unique Teddy Bear Gifts as a Tribute to her Late Husband

Most of our customers are florists, gift shops and the like, but we were happy to send a case of teddy bears to Laura Castro, a retired grandmother of six in Puerto Rico. Why did she need so many bears? She tells us that she wanted to craft unique gifts for each of her eight grandchildren.

Her plan was to use clothing from her late husband's wardrobe and fashion clothes to dress up the bears. Then she placed a photo frame in the lap of the bears that held a picture of her husband holding the grandkid, many of them as babies.

Now each of her grandchildren have a priceless memento of their grandpa!

Laura was kind enough to send some photos and we're happy to share them here with you. The one she purchased was our #2210 10" Sitting Bear Assortment.

  

  

An amazing tribute if we do say so ourselves. Our bears have never looked better!
