Just one example of the lovely items you can see at the Teddy in a Bag tables at fairs and markets.

If you have yet to have the pleasure of meeting Teddy in a Bag at a table top sale or craft fair, here are a couple of pictures taken at the table top sale I attended this Saturday.

(Background of the pictures has been amended by the way – it was a very busy sale and it would not have been fair to include customers in the pictures when they hadn’t given their permission).

Not all the items we sell can be seen in the displays shown here, but I always aim to have the following on display:

  • Teddies in a wide range of shoulder bags,
  • Teddies in tote bags,
  • Teddies in backpacks,
  • Teddies in handbags,
  • Teddies in moses baskets,
  • Teddies in gift baskets,
  • Teddies in sleeping bags,
  • Teddies in cradles,
  • Teddies in swings,
  • Tiny teddies and bunnies in tiny baskets,
  • Teddies in gift sacks,
  • Teddies in purses,
  • Micro teddies in gift bags…

Plus a range of handmade gifts, including:

  • Elephant snuggles,
  • Sunshine snuggles,
  • Phone bags,
  • Purses,
  • Pouches/Clutch bags
  • Pencil cases with coloured pencils inside
  • A small range of children’s decorative shoulder bags,
  • A small range of women’s decorative shoulder bags,
  • Ornate market bags…

(and other items which I will remember after typing this 🙂 )

Soon I will be posting an up to date list of Christmas Fairs and Markets we will be attending in 2019.
And now you’ve seen what our indoor displays look like (together with our outdoor displays of course), you will know how best to look out for us over the coming months 🙂

In any case, you can look out for the Teddy in a Bag distinctive Logo, which, as you can see from the picture above, is always at the top of our side display.


Extra Note:
If you live in or around the Portsmouth/Southsea area and would like to see Teddy in a Bag at your Christmas Fair, or if you are interested in seeing our stock, please contact me.

And I hope to see you here very soon with more new lines and old favourites.

See Teddy in a Bag at St Margarets Hall This Saturday

Teddy in a Bag is pleased to announce that we will be at the St Margarets Table Top Sale this Saturday, 28th September, 2019.

table-top-sale-st-margarets-689-widthThe Table Top Sale will be open from 1pm to 3pm.

The venue is St Margarets Church Hall, Highland Road, Southsea, PO4 9DD.

This is a great sale, with Free Entry to see lots of different tables and enjoy some refreshments. Just the thing for an enjoyable Saturday afternoon.

And the sale is in aid of helping the local community.

It’s always a pleasure to attend events which help good causes, so I’m making sure I will have some new stock on display, alongside all the favourites.


You can see from the picture above some of the lines I will be showing:

  • Teeny tiny baskets with tiny teddies and bunnies inside;
  • Teddies in swinging cradles; moses baskets, teddy cradles, small children’s baskets, backpacks, and shoulder bags, and pretty purses – all with a teddy inside.
  • And those brand new Decorative Baskets with a happy Teddy snuggled up inside which I featured in my previous post.
  • Then there are elephant ‘snuggle blankets’, and ‘sunshine’ snuggles.
  • There are some items for adults and teenagers too – the large crochet shopper on the right of the picture is just one example of this range.
  • And lots more besides from our original range.

So, I think you’ll agree that Teddy in a Bag will have a great range there 🙂

I do hope you will pop in to the St Margaret’s Table Top Sale this Saturday, and do please come over to say hello to us. That would be great.

Looking forward to seeing you there.

Little Crochet Pouches Make Ideal Gifts

Each of these pretty little crochet pouches is one of a kind.


Another brand new set for Teddy in a Bag are these dear little crochet pouches.


They are made from crochet ‘granny squares’ and each one is different in some way.

As you can see from the pictures, from the front they may look alike, but turn them over and you may find a flower, a mandala pattern, a peacock’s tail, a spiral, a moon, or many other little patterns.

Suitable for adults and children over 3 years, these little pouches are ideal to store make up, keepsakes, small toys… or of course a tiny teddy 🙂

As they are individuals, sizes vary a little, but the average size of these little pouches is 10cms (4 inches) wide and 9cms (3.5 inches) in height.

They all have a button closure, but open they can also be fixed to a hook (in the bathroom, etc) to hold and display little items.

At the moment, these little pouches are for sale only at markets and fayres, but may make an appearance in our Etsy shop later in the year.

Prices for markets and fayres is:
Pouch only – £3 each.
Pouch with tiny teddy inside – £3.50 each.


I would guess that these little crochet pouches would make ideal stocking fillers for Christmas too 🙂
