With all imported bears I am showing the price one would pay in the currency of they country they are imported from, in the description.
- I would like customers to support the shop, however many will visit the shop, pick up/ feel/ the bear, then go and buy online. We are very aware of who does this. Or we have customers who advise they can get the bear at a better price buying directly from overseas supplier.
- By showing the RRP price-you are able to compare the shop price to the price you would pay if you import directly. Many people however, do no take into account the high shipping costs to South Africa, plus all goods imported have to pay 15% VAT plus clearing fees. Sending good via the local post office is very cost effective and if you lucky you will get your parcel however many overseas companies will only ship via courier. ALSO NOTE RATE OF EXCHANGE differs depending on what is happening in the world.
- You are able to buy online from my shop, if you are unable to visit.
Once again Charlie Bears have produced a supurb range of teddy bears and other animals. Lots of details go into the making of these bears, being a teddy bear artist, I know very well the time it takes to complete one piece.
The Isabelle Range is made using mohair and alpaca fabrics. These fabrics are expensive and this is reflected in the price. ( PLEASE NOTE- that NO ANIMALS are abused in anyway when sourcing mohair and alpaca)
Bears/animals in this range are LIMITED editions, and sell out fast.
The Bearhouse range- is an unjointed teddy bear/animal. Stunning animals in this range and made from good quality plush .
The Charlie Bear range- is jointed teddy bears /animals. Jointing allows then to move. In this range you will also find bears/animals referred to as PLUMO. This is a mixture of mohair and plush. The mohair is mainly used for the muzzle area. This range is also limited in editions.
The 2021 Charlie Bears will be delivered in 4 intervals during the year, we can give an indication of the dates, however this cannot be confirmed. Final prices can only be confirmed when we make payment to Charlie Bears using the current exchange rate, with the fluctuating currency it is not always easy to give a confirmed price.
If you are interested in a bear, it is advisable to pre-book by paying a 10% deposit. ( Please note that the deposit is not refundable and the bear ordered cannot be exchanged for another bear)
If a bear you are interested in, is not shown on the webpage, we can add it to a Wishlist.
