For those who may wonder how our business name originated -
My name is Judy Ann, but from a young age my Dad called me "Annie" . This nickname has stuck through my whole life, with my husband Noel continuing the tradition.
So when deciding on our business name it was an obvious choice.
Hence "Bears by Annie" our home-based business came to be.
I started making bears around 30 years ago just for my own enjoyment, but as those that saw them fell in love with them, I decided it was time to branch out into retail with my own original designs.
We are looking forward to exhibiting at Bear and Craft shows again, as soon as the industry opens up again.
In the meantime we hope you are inspired as you browse through our brand new website, and find something you love.
