About Merry Bear's Emporium
Hi! My name is “Merry Bear” (you can call me just “Merry” for short) and I am the proprietor-ess of this fine and happy trading post that I (not having too much imagination) have named Merry Bear’s Emporium.
Well, I guess I should really start at the beginning. Somewheres along the line, I became sort of “displaced” from my original home and human family and found myself smack dab here in the middle of what I (again, my not having too much imagination) have named Imagination Woods. It is a beautiful and very magical place. No matter what is happening in the “outside world,” this place is always filled with love and joy and peace (with just a touch of whimsy).
While I am not exactly sure where this is located geographically, I do know that USPS, UPS and Fedex stop by here frequently!
Well -- one by one – all manner of other stuffed bears and other critters, stuffed kids, abandoned toys and other collectibles started, well, “collecting” here and pretty soon we had quite a growing population. They all brought with them their belongings and things they acquired along their journey to here -- their “accoutrements” (saw that word in a thesaurus we found! I think it means “lotsa stuff”)
I’ve always believed when life hands you lemons, make lemonade and that is exactly what I did. I started out with what I (again, not having an excess of imagination) named Merry Bear’s Lemonade Stand.
Well, dang if that wasn’t such a hit, it just sort of starting growing on its own. Other members of our little group started bringing over some of their belongings and we set up a trading post. With USPS, UPS, and Fedex traipsing in and out, we started growing and growing and growing.
Well, now we got our hands (or paws as the case may be) on a computer and found ourselves a new opportunity called the Internet! So we are ready to go big-time. Please be patient as I set up our webstore, as typing isn’t so easy when you have to do it with paws. As always, I am trying to do my bestest!
Now, to be perfectly honest, while some of us have settled in and live here permanently, most of our residents are looking for new homes and new families to re-love them, on a forever-home basis. Each of them has a unique story of how they came to be and how they came to be here, but the one thing they all have in common is that they would just love to be back in a forever-home with a family of their very own! Each one comes with heart full of love they carried with them from each previous home, and are just waiting to share with you!
And, no matter what may come along in your life – in your “outside world,” they will always always always be there for you to help you through it and bring to your “inside world” a bit of the spirit of Imagination Woods – to this very special place that is always filled with love and joy and peace (with just a touch of whimsy!). It is their promise to always bring a smile to your face --- no matter what! For sure – guaranteed, warranteed and certified by me, Merry Bear, the proprietor-ess of Merry Bear’s Emporium!
In the meantime, we all stay happy and healthy and work or wait in or around Merry Bear’s Emporium, smack dab in the middle of Imagination Woods. Just waiting for you to come a-visiting!
…And waiting for the next USPS, UPS or Fedex truck to arrive!
