Summer Fayres and New Stock at Teddy in a Bag

It has been a busy summer so far for Teddy in a Bag.
We have had a great time in the sun at school fayres. Last weekend, we had two great days at Pop Up on the Pier, Southsea, and this coming Saturday, 3rd August, we will be at Castle Fields, Southsea, for the Rowans Hospice Summer Fete (more about that in the next post).

Here is a side view of the stall shared with Little Gifts of Southsea at Pop Up on the Pier.

Teddy in a Bag seaside display

As you can see, it was a little windy but there was so much for all the family to see and do, it was a great event.

In the picture, you may have caught a glimpse of some of the new items for sale at Teddy in a Bag.
I like to make sure that there is always something new and interesting to see and this year there are bunnies as well as teddies on display!

There are tiny crochet baskets, some with a teddy inside and some with a bunny inside and they are extremely cute! And just as important, our Bunny in a Basket and Teddy in a Basket gifts are very reasonably priced, at £2.00 for each basket with Teddy or Bunny inside. so they make lovely gifts and pocket money toys.

Alongside the little baskets, some of the most popular items are our Teddy in a swinging crochet cradle.
They look lovely hanging from a door, from the side of a child’s bed, or holding as a teddy wing.
At £3.50 each, the cradle swings are also a great gift for a child.

But there is loads of stock at Teddy in a Bag for you to choose from.
The picture below shows more of a closeup of just some of the items on display.

We also have adult’s and children’s bags (including eco-friendly cotton shoppers) and children’s snuggle blankets with bright sunshine or elephant centres. And these complement our bags, backpacks, cradles, moses baskets, little baskets and more and in lots of different sizes.

When you visit us at a fayre or market, there is always someone on hand to talk to if you want to ask questions. For instance, there are special bags and teddies which are safe for toddlers, while there are others which are loved by and safe for children of all ages (and adults too!).

You can see some Teddy in a Bag stock at the Elephant Sun Dog Etsy Shop, but to see much more and to view stock which is not always for sale online, do try to see us at our next markets.
We’d love to see you there.

And the next post is about exactly that…. our next market!

Elephant Print Cotton Tote Bag With Teddy In Pocket

Here is another of the cotton tote bags which are very popular at our markets.

This one is in a lovely elephant print (with very cute elephants 🙂 ) and the trim and reversible lining is a beautiful, bright star print.

Of course, each elephant print tote has a tiny teddy in the pocket.
And as all the tiny teddies are jointed, each can sit quite happily outside the bag too 🙂

Cotton tote bags measure approximately 9 inches in length (not counting the shoulder strap) by 7.5 inches wide, and the tiny teddy is approximately 3 inches high when standing.

As the tiny teddy is quite small, although the teddy has a cE mark, for safety I recommend that the teddy is not given to under threes to play with unsupervised.

These little bags are priced at £6.50 at Christmas markets or at £9.00 (includes postage, packing and processing costs) when available in our Etsy shop.

Children love them and the bags are so useful too!

Childs Elephant Print Cotton Shopper With Teddy

Lovely cotton shopper/tote for a child, with a tiny teddy in the front pocket:

I have already posted about one child’s cotton shopper bag with the floral print cotton shopper.
But I think you will like this addition just as much if not more: It’s a lovely double-sided shopper made with pretty elephant print cotton, coupled with stars. And all in a nice, bright red – just right for Christmas (and the rest of the year too 🙂 ).

And of course I mustn’t forget to add that there will be a tiny teddy in the front pocket of each shopper.

This little bag is made in tote/shopper style. It is very roomy inside and has deep little pockmets front and back to carry pens, pencils….or a tiny teddy 🙂

Bag measures approximately 8.75 inches (22.5 cms) in height (not counting handles) and is 10.75 inches (27.5 cms) wide.
The two handles measure 8 inches (20 cms) [3.5 inches actual carrying depth] each one.

Small, jointed teddy is 3 inches (7.5 cms) tall.

This little shopper/tote will make a lovely gift for a child who wants to help with the shopping or to take their special items to school or just to carry toys and play.

However, although the teddy has a CE mark, I would not recommend leaving the teddy in the bag when giving to children under 3 years old to play with unsupervised, owing to small parts.

These children’s shoppers sell at £8.00 each at Markets (this includes the tiny teddy of course) and will retail for £11.50 online and in the Elephant Sun Dog Etsy shop (online price includes postage, packing and processing fees).

I’m sure you will agree that they are an ideal present for children, both boys and girls.
