As early as 8.00am, tables and chairs were being set up to greet eager customers, who were mainly the students that were coming in from the buses, footfall quickly increased and the pace hotted up. Apart from small children, our notable customer was Mr. Short who is a bit of a regular so we might work on a loyalty card, and Ms Good who bought a sun hat bear to take to sports events with the school teams.
Of course all our customers are very precious to us and we love to hear what our bears are doing or where they are going to go over the holiday. Please bring us holiday photos.
We sold 35 out of our 50 sunhat bears today, and with only 15 bears left to sell we expect the selling to be faster than today. We want to reassure anyone who is not lucky enough to buy a bear this time around that after the summer holiday there will enough bears for everyone, uniform bears and sunhat bears and also some uniforms and hats by themselves.
Thank you to everyone for helping make this project such a success we love our bears and we have loved seeing how popular they have become.
"Sad to say, we have gone away. The last little bear is waving goodbye! But my friends will be here for the new school year and you'll see us upon your return! Look for more uniform and sunhat bears in August. Thank you to everyone for the support."
