Supplier Contacts


Compiled by Martha Burch


Martha Burch, Martha's Bears, compiled a list of suppliers for everyone's use.

This list is by no means complete and we will be adding reputable suppliers from time to time.

Remember that we take no responsibility for any problems that you might have with any of these suppliers. To the best of our knowledge, they are all reputable and deliver on time.

Many names and links came from bear artists who use these suppliers regularly.

Editors Note: If you'd like a friendly supplier added to this list, please send to Bears&Buds and Martha Burch and tell us what they sell, include web address, contact information and why you like them.
