Each one has a name and a story.There's Trevor, Stuart, Eric, Jude, Brian, Fred, Rosie, Tennis-Ted, the Purple Pair, Jelly Babes and Elvis. They're not a collection - heaven forbid - and I'm only sentimental about one or two.They have just appeared over the years.
I know people who love to collect hedgehogs, owls, thimbles, coins, stamps, allsorts - and I've attempted to collect old glass in the past and enjoyed researching about it. But BEARS??
