THIS AUCTION OFFERS YOU THE OPPORTUNITY TO PURCHASE A

NEW REPLACEMENT COAT & HAT FOR YOUR 18" PADDINGTON BEAR

AN ABSOLUTE MUST FOR YOUR PADDINGTON IF HE HAS LOST HIS OWN, OR IF HIS EXISTING COAT & HAT ARE IN A BAD STATE OF REPAIR.


  • THE COAT & HAT IS HANDMADE BY MYSELF FROM FELT
    { COLOURS CURRENTLY AVAILABLE: RED, PURPLE, DOVE GREY, CERISE, NAVY BLUE, ROYAL BLUE, SKY BLUE, DARK BROWN, BEIGE, BLACK, BRIGHT ORANGE, GOLDEN YELLOW & FOREST GREEN ALREADY MADE UP, BUT OTHER COLOURS MIGHT BE POSSIBLE - SUBJECT TO FELT AVAILABILITY CONFIRMED ON REQUEST - PLEASE EMAIL FOR DETAILS}

(IT'S NEW, SO YES IT IS 'MINT' WITH NO HOLES/DISCOLOURATION ETC AS YOU OFTEN FIND IN ORIGINALS)
HOWEVER LIKE ALL OF MY HANDMADE PADDINGTON & AUNT LUCY CLOTHES IT IS MADE WITH CARE & ATTENTION TO DETAIL TO IMITATE THE ORIGINAL GABRIELLE DESIGNS PATTERN, SO YOU CAN HARDLY TELL THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THIS AND AN ORIGINAL

  • THE COAT FEATURES THE USUAL DOUBLE BREASTED LOOP FASTENING FRONT

  • IT IS FITTED WITH THE TRADITIONAL FOUR WOODEN TOGGLES

  • IT HAS TWO FRONT POCKETS AND A HOOD
  •  
  • THE HAT IS COMPLETE WITH LARGE SAFETY PIN
  • ALL COATS ARE SUPPLIED WITH A REPLICA/REPLACEMENT BROWN/CREAM CARD PRINTED LUGGAGE LABEL WITH THE TRADITIONAL INSCRIPTION TO THAT FOUND ON THE ORIGINALS TOO

  • A CHANCE TO COMPLETE YOUR PADDINGTON AND KEEP HIM WARM & FREE FROM ANY HARMFUL EFFECTS OF THE ENVIRONMENT OR OTHER PESTS WHICH LIKE TO HIBERNATE IN THESE BEARS FUR.

 (PLUS IF YOU HAVE TO PART COMPANY - COMPLETE PADDINGTONS FETCH A LOT HIGHER PRICE AND ARE MORE IN DEMAND)

PLEASE LOOK AFTER YOU BEAR!


PLEASE NOTE

TO TRY TO PREVENT ANY CONFUSION OR UPSET [I KNOW SOME PEOPLE HOW CLAIM TO BE SELLERS OF ONLY ORIGINAL ITEMS CAN GET A LITTLE CRITICAL ABOUT SELLERS LIKE ME WHO SELL NON-GABRIELLE ORIGINAL STUFF YET THEY BUY ITEMS FROM ME TO SELL WITH THEIR 'COMPLETELY ORIGINAL' BEARS :O/]

 FOR THE PURPOSE OF MOST OF MY LISTINGS (UNLESS OTHERWISE STATED AS GABRIELLE ORIGINAL – LIKE MY BEARS FOR INSTANCE), WHEN I SAY REPLICA OR REPLACEMENT IT MEANS THE ITEM OF CLOTHING OR ACCESSORY IS HANDCRAFTED BY MYSELF TO IMITATE THE ORIGINALS, HOWEVER THEY ARE REPRODUCED WITH SO MUCH ATTENTION TO DETAIL THAT THEY APPEAR JUST LIKE YOU'D EXPECT OF AN ORIGINAL FROM THE DAYS OF GABRIELLE DESIGNS MANUFACTURE!

IN MAKING THIS ITEM I HAVE TRIED TO CHOOSE THE MOST SUITABLE OF MATERIALS
SO IT THE LOOK IS SYMPATHETIC TO THE ORIGINAL VERSIONS

THEY ARE ONLY LIKENESSES & NOT SOMETHING I AM PASSING OFF AS ORIGINAL, AND TRUE COLLECTORS WILL TELL THE DIFFERENCE

IF YOU ARE UNSURE OF ANY OF MY LISTING PLEASE EMAIL ME BEFORE BIDDING, I AM ONLY TOO GRATEFUL TO CLARIFY ANY POINTS NECESSARY

GABRIELLE PRODUCED HER BEARS & CLOTHES IN MASS QUANTITIES IN A FACTORY - I DON'T HAVE SUCH LUXURIES!

I SOURCE THE BEST MATERIAL I CAN, WHEN I CAN, I DON'T HAVE A LOT OF SPACE TO STORE MASS QUANTITIES, WHICH LIMITS THE NUMBER I CAN MAKE OF ANY ONE GIVEN MATERIAL

THIS MAKES EACH PIECE EVEN MORE SPECIAL & I SUPPOSE YOU COULD CALL 'LIMITED EDITION' - YOU AND YOUR BEAR CAN BE PROUD THAT VERY FEW OTHERS WILL HAVE AN ITEM EXACTLY LIKE THIS AS EACH ONE DIFFERS FROM THE NEXT

YOUR PADDINGTON CAN STAND PROUDLY IN THE KNOWLEDGE THAT NO OTHER BEAR WILL LOOK THE SAME AS HIM
WHAT A PRIVILEDGE - A UNIQUE TAILOR MADE OUTFIT

I TRY TO PRICE MY ITEMS SENSIBLY - I NEED TO COVER MY COSTS TO BE ABLE TO KEEP 'MY HOBBY' GOING
MATERIAL COSTS ETC (EBAY & PAYPAL FEES ALL HAVE TO BE CONSIDERED TOO!)

ORIGINAL GABRIELLE BEAR CLOTHING IN MY OPINION IS OFTEN OVER-PRICED & WITH THE CURRENT ECONOMIC CLIMATE I AM SOMETIMES SHOCKED AT WHAT SOME PEOPLE CHARGE & ARE WILLING TO PAY

I'M NOT HERE TO RIP ANYONE OFF - IN FACT I HATE SETTING PRICES
 I FIND IT HARD TO PUT A VALUE ON ANY OF MY WORK - I CAN BE MY OWN WORST CRITIC - IF THERE IS SOMETHING THAT YOU LIKE & YOU FEEL IT IS OVERPRICED I AM OPEN TO REASONABLE NEGOTIATION - OR I MAY BE ABLE TO OFFER AN ALTERNATIVE SIMILAR ITEM
-
PERHAPS ONE OF MY NOT-SO-SUCCESSFUL REJECTED PIECES THAT I MIGHT OTHERWISE BE EMBARRASSED TO AUCTION (EVEN THESE TYPES OF THINGS ARE NOT ALL THAT BAD TO BE HONEST!)

PLEASE FEEL FREE TO CONTACT ME WITH ANY FURTHER QUERIES

  •  

THANKS FOR LOOKING AND GOOD LUCK WITH YOUR BIDDING.
