Dear Julie
Biff was delivered safely this morning and he looks great, thank you so much for getting him back to how he should look, love the bow too, I would definitely recommend Bear it in mind to anyone.


Dear Julie (and whoever's miraculous needlework did the job!)
Just wanted to tell you, that we are absolutely bowled over and over the moon with what you have done. He is absolutely wonderful, so sensitively repaired (on a bear that was falling to pieces. It can't have been easy.) You really are miracle workers. Could cry for joy, Thank you so, so much.


Hi Amanda
Teddy 2 arrived this morning and he looks very handsome indeed. It's hard to believe that he is as old as he is and he smells so much better without the smoke. You've done a lovely job of him and it's great to have him back
Many thanks


Just to let you know that my teddy has arrived home safe and well. He looks so much better now with 2 eyes- and a proper muzzle- you can see his character! Many thanks for your work- it made me cry seeing him again, looking so rejuvenated and wearing his dapper yellow neck bow! I'm so pleased I had him restored.

Collected Bruno after his excellent restoration. This will keep him going for another 90 years. Thanks to the bear hospital team.

Thank you for caring for Tiny. I was surprised that you could fix him up so well after the run in with my dog.

The team at Bear It In Mind recently restored a Victorian vintage dog for display in Palace House. They did a beautiful job and we are very happy with the result. We are so pleased we have the shop Bear It In Mind here in Beaulieu village.  We have a High Street full of marvellous shops of which they are one of the most unusual and interesting.

Hi All... above is a photo of us with Bunny Campione who visited Bear It In Mind for a 'tour' of our premises and business! - Love Julie xx

"I was impressed with your work at the shop, and all your wonderful new animals and Teddy Bears. There are precious few dedicated people who can make them really well, and of course the bears that have been loved really do need tender loving care in restoration and patching.

Your details have been handed to the BBC Antiques Roadshow Team in case anyone wants to have their Teddy Bear restored."
