They've got big ol' life size wooden bears, medium bears, small bears, bears holding signs and other carved wooden gifts.

Look at the growl of that brown bear to the left! ;)

You can visit their web site at:

LEFT: Bill, the owner, showed me his work area and proudly held up his chainsaw that makes those wooden bears! :)

RIGHT: John holds up one of his recent creations.

Special thanks to both of these gentleman for showing me around!
