All very good but I'm looking forward to closing at 5pm and getting a short nap


Mad, clicking on the inventory on your Charlie Bears links makes me think I'm in an old Monty Python skit.

Customer: Do you have Cosmopolitans?
Proprietor: On order, sir.
Customer: How about a Little One?
Proprietor; Fresh sold out, sir.
Customer: How about a Nibble, Moth, Icicle or Hiccup?
Proprietor: I'm afraid the shipments are still stuck on the loading docks, sir.
Customer: Not much of a Charlie Teddy Bear shop, is it.
Proprietor: Our online store has been rated as one of the fastest in the industry, sir.
Customer: Well, having absolutely nothing you can actually order must help with the bandswidth, I suppose.

:D :D Just kidding, Mad. That your customers are lining up to buy your not-as-yet arrived stock should make you the envy of stores everywhere. :D

I'm happy on the order list. Can't find what I want any where so a promise is better than nothing :D

I won't get any of these for at least 6 months and some of the orders I'm taking won't be fulfilled for 2 years (including most of the bears you mention). This is one of the worst suppliers known to man but the products sell out against pre-orders so we very rarely have any of the mohair bears actually in stock and don't expect to put any of these on the shelves. We do have well over 100 of their other bears in the shop though so there is plenty to choose from for people coming here :D
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

I never knew that bears were such big business.
