They carry a fully stocked handbag with all the necessities an elderly lady would carry - handkerchief, keys, hair pins and more along with a few surprises! Each bear is complemented with a portfolio with photo and information about the bear and Heather.

The display bears are surrounded with both new and antique accessories to evoke memories of a by-gone era. They will make a beautiful display piece in your home will be much admired.
