a couple of other thrift finds that I like a lot the tray is hand painted and quite pretty and a large size. the bears in the balloon are Raikes bears boy and girl with the original tags and price tag of $150.00 - I got it for $2.00 at a rummage sale . their faces and feet pads are wood. I have coveted this type of bears for years, but could not afford one. now I have my own


  1. Raikes bears! What a wonderful find. I use to go to a large Teddy Bear show that they had here every year, and I remember the Raikes were always priced very high. I collect Teddy Bears but mine are mostly just cheaper ones that I like not artist bears. I can't believe the prices for some of the artist bears.

  2. I have only drooled over these bears at a gift shop downtown now I can't believe I have 2 of them.
