Item Availability
EBEARSTORE  handles collectables by Steiff and Charlie Bears. Due to the hand-made nature of these pieces, some items shown on the website are not available for immediate delivery. Manufactured pieces also have handmade components that can delay their arrival in stock. We try to announce when items are in stock either in the item description, e-mails or a website announcement; however, due to the limited nature of the items we carry, they may not remain in stock very long. If you need to verify that an item is in stock for quick delivery or an item needs to be delivered to you by a special date, please email us, so we can verify availability.
