Hardy, I forgot you were in Maryland.
 
There is a bear store in Fells Point, Baltimore, where they carry the line of
bears you speak of, and perhaps old willy shaksbear himself. Unfortunately, I
don't remember the name of the store, but its next to the bar, Leadbetters,
perhaps they can give you the name; its across the street from The Horse You
Came In On.  Sorry all my fells point geography is based on the locations of
bars.  The owner is a little out there, and seems to have a conversational
relationship with much of her merchandise, but she probably can help, if not
sell you one.

Fran and Hardy--
 
I visited a store caled Bear Tracks this morning. They carry the line (VIB)
from which Shakesbear was retired, but they have no more Wills. The woman there
did, however, show me a magazine called *Teddy Bear and Friends* which covers
everything from Teddy Artists to Teddy Bear Jamborees. There are also lots of
ads about bears for sale from stores and from individuals. I have no idea what
the prices would be, but I thought I'd send along some of the possibles. If
either of you would like a closer at the magazine, I'll be happy to send it
snail mail.
 
Here are some stores that mention VIBs specifically:
 
     Bears by the Sea  (805)-773-1952
     Teddy Bear Junction  (804)-564-7623
     The Bear Tree (714)-527-1411
     Shirley's Dollhouse  (708)-537-1632  ("Largest inventory of old VIBs")
 
There are quite a few personal or small-store ads offering VIBs for sale,
some mentioning rather ominously "best offer." Two mention Shakesbear
himself:
 
     Urbanski Bears  (312)-831-2769
     Holly  (307)-745-8481
 
Three sources offer retired VIBs:
 
     Teddy Bear Country  (817)-624-7007
     Unnamed  (718)-761-8147
     Second Childhood  (717)-875-2851
 
Hope this helps. Again, if you'd like to see the magazine, I'll be glad to send
it.
 
Terry

Just wanted to let you know that I'll probably have a bear made or else
surrender my attempt a whimsey and settle for giving a bottle of Scotch as a
graduation gift.
 
I have found all the lore about bears quite charming and all the enthusiastic
help quite touching. Thank you so much for making this sort of inquiry
possible. It's really brightened my June knowing that so many folks are willing
to help out!
 
Fran T.
