Welcome To Haven Bears
A warm welcome to the Mobile and Tablet friendly Haven Bears Website, I do hope that you like it. You can also now follow us on Instagram at havenbearsandhares where we add new bears as we finish them each day and show Haven Bears on Tour as we travel around the country for fairs! To see the Gallery of our Instagram photo's we also have a separate Instagram Page here on the Website so do visit and see our new bears as they are finished.
Quick update - Our next fair is the Buxton Toy Fair this Sunday, 18th November, at the newly restored Octagon Hall at the Pavilion Gardens in the centre of the beautiful spa town. It is over three years since this fair has been held and the Octagon Hall has had several million pounds of restoration so it will be interesting to see how it looks. Unlike in September, the Hall is definately finished this time and the organisers have told us that the 150 stalls have sold out with a long waiting list so it should be a good day. If you are local enough, do come and see us there with all our new bears.
Also this month we are taking part in our first online bear fair, the www.ebearshow.com which starts on Friday November 30th. Starting today, Friday 16th November, there is a Preview Weekend when you can see who is taking part in the show and preview one of their bears. You can also vote for your three favourite stalls so do visit www.ebearshow.com and see our Preview bear, Miss Minerva, we would love it if you voted for us! The Preview started at 4pm Sydney time which was 5am our time (!) but don't worry, the Preview is open for 9 days so there is plenty of time to see the bears. We are working hard on our other entries to the show, we can enter between 3 and 15 bears. The theme of the show is "Sophisticated or Simple". To read more about this exciting new venture for us visit our Fairs or News pages.
Hello everyone, welcome to the Haven Bears shop. Our names are Alison and Stephen Beal and we have been making our gorgeous Haven Bears for over 16 years. We may have moved house last year but we are still living on the edge of our beloved Delamere Forest and even have a fantastic view of it now from our lovely studio. All of our bears are Collectors Bears and are "One of a Kind", they are made using the very highest quality mohair and alpaca with cashmere, Sassy fabric or ultrasuede pads and paws. We use a variety of fillings, steel shot, glass beads, rubber or plastic pellets and polyester to give our bears weight and that extra cuddle factor. During 2013 we also introduced a new range of Plush and semi-plush bears in a range of sizes. The use of this more affordable material enables us to make big bears at a sensible price. We may not always have these bears in stock but they are available to order so if you are interested in one, just let us know. During 2017 we also started to make beautiful Haven Hares in a mixture of plush and mohair. These Hares are currently available in two sizes, visit the Shop Page for more details. As all our bears are "One of a Kind" we guarantee not to duplicate a bear so you know that each one you buy is unique to you.
