Lost Dog

We've been busy adding lots of new products to the website and one of our latest additions is Lost Dog collectible - a cute little lost dog,

This little character figurine dog seeks a new home, and a new owner. He is on the street, alone, an adorable white pup that is lost and desperately wants to find a new home.

This is a great gift idea for anyone who loves dogs

The Me to You Story (Tatty Teddy)

Heavenly Jewellery Specialises in Me to You

We have a wide range of Me to You bears including Me to you Jewellery, Plush Bears, Wedding, Resin Figurines and lots more

So I thought I will tell you the Me to You story

The Tatty Teddy Story ~. Written by Miranda.

The oldest, smallest house you can imagine was about to be knocked down.

All the things that once made the house nice and cosy had been thrown outside and piled up in the front garden, from the soft springy bed the owners slept in, to the old wooden floorboards they used to walk on...and even...surely by some mistake...a little brown teddy bear.
He was trapped amongst all the other unwanted things, and couldn't move.

Then, one day...a very, very cold day, something fell from the sky... ...a little snowflake. It landed on the teddy bear's little nose and was then followed by many more. He began to get cold, very cold indeed. More and more snow fell, heavier and heavier.

The little bear was now so cold that his nose started turning blue... cold that his brown fur started turning grey. He was cold, unloved and all alone in the world, and felt very, very sad.

Winter finally passed and the weather got warmer, and, one beautiful spring day, a little girl was playing near the old house, when she spotted the grey bear in the pile of unwanted things. He was like no other bear she had ever seen, and she pulled him out from where he was trapped. She dusted him down and lifted him high in the sky to look at him. "A grey bear...with a blue nose?" She thought. "How strange!" The teddy bear wanted to cry. He thought she didn't like him and would throw him back with the other unwanted things. "But he's lovely!" she continued and she fell completely in love with him. She ran home as fast as her little legs would carry her to see if her Grandma could patch him up, as a lot of his stuffing had fallen out, and he was very much in need of repair. She looked on has her Grandma replaced his stuffing and patched up his holes. His stitches has started showing where his fur had worn away, but little girl thought he looked perfect.

It was all cosy and warm in the little girl's house and the bear now felt cosy and warm in his heart. However, his nose was still blue and his fur was still grey, and they would never return to brown. He was unique amongst teddy bears.

The little girl gave him a great big hug. She loved him more than anything else in the world...her little, grey, blue-nosed...tatty teddy.

Taken the plunge!

Well I've finally taken the plunge and started a blog!

I must be mad?? ( no don't answer that lol )

I hope to keep you all updated on the new products and special offers available as well as the ups and downs of a busy online retailer

ummm where to start? ok so my name is Michelle and I run an online retail shop specialising in Me to You (Tatty Teddy) bears we also stock Gund, Forever Friends, Gold, Silver & Children's Jewellery, Shearer candles, Eeyore, Spaceform Wedding Jewellery & Accessories and so much more.....

We are an established business that was first started in 1998, we started party planning, then moved onto the markets eventually in 1999 producing our own website - in those days we were known as J & M Giftware, I then came accross fsauctions - Anyone remember them?? and then moved to QXL and eventually in 2000 to ebay, we still sell on ebay although not to the extent that we used too, and in September last year we became a retailer on Amazon.

Up until 2005 the business was part time as I had a "normal" job but when my 2nd child was born I decided to take the plunge and become full time and have never looked back, I love working for myself although it can be a bit scary knowing that if you don't work you wont get paid (Inserts a shocked face here)

so anyway back to the present, so where do we plan to take the business now?

Well it has always been my wish to have my own little shop, but in the current climate I have decided to put that on the back burner for now, but once my youngest is at school full time I will start to think about it more seriously, in the meantime we are planning to expand our product range and maybe open up a new website specialising in teddy bears, there's lots of ideas spinning around in my head at the minute so who knows what we this space :-)
