Back on the road

Just before lockdown I was asked to remove my bears from retail premises by Trading Standards. Rather than do battle with them again I was prepared to stop making bears. Another bear maker in the area was also contacted by them. Being younger, and there were two of them, they kept emailing TS to come to a solution. We both had bears in Crafted in Moray and they were determined to have us both back.


The solution turned out to be quite simple. Was so annoyed that TS couldn’t just point this out. They required the wording on the card label attached to the bears, to be stitched on as well. I keep things simple and unadorned. So ordered up these simple labels.

Charlie and Gillian at Crafted in Moray are happy bunnies again. They have both styles of bears back in their shop. I took these in a few days ago and one has gone to it’s forever home aready.
