Alice's Bear Shop
Alice's Bear Store has re opened it's doors. Riley Austin first brought us the stories and characters of Alice's Bear store over 20 years ago. In 2018 with new design and production partners (Charlie Bears) Alice's Bear Shop is making it's welcome return.
Images are an indication of design only and actual colours may vary slightly due to the lighting and your individual monitor settings. Where a supplier photo has been used your actual bear may vary slightly as many of the bears we stock are hand made or hand finished.
We feel these slight differences are to be embraced and are actually what makes the bears special and unique. Where our bears vary significantly we have taken the time to individually photograph them for you and you can use the drop down box when ordering to “ Select your Bear “
