Last night Rob Probert was mentioning a real curiosity to myself and Carleton Place and Beckwith Heritage Museum curator Jennifer Fenwick Irwin. Did you know there used to be a Teddy Bear Company located in Carleton Place? Apparently it was run by a German lady?
Does anyone know anything about it? Please leave a comment or send me an email at: firstname.lastname@example.org
