The Three Little Bears have moved back to where it started, Smiths Cove. We successfully sold our Waldec Line Road property in March of this year. Unfortunately, due to health reasons, we were not able to fulfill our plan to build on our Pury Road farm property in Deep Brook. Instead, we returned to our property in Smiths Cove. It will be a few weeks yet before we officially reopen as a retail business. But we continue to sell a few pets - chinchillas, hedgehogs, birds, guppies - and have plans to sell fruit and veggies as well as flowers and potted plants from our properties in Deep Brook and Smiths Cove.
Ian is looking forward to making birdhouses in the big workshop on the property. And he plans to expand on his photography business, producing custom-made postcards and calendars. He has also begun custom-designing and producing bumper stickers, decals, buttons, and license plates. Our Christian books and CDs/DVDs remain in storage, but we have plans for building a small retail "bunkie" by the road from which to sell them.
The first half of 2018 promises to be busy as we settle in and set things up. But we are hopeful that The Three Little Bears will at long last open again - but as a quite different entity than it was back in 2014.
The three little bears are castaways from Bear Island, which is just a few kilometres east of the store site. Click here to read their stories
