Providing a wonderful marketplace to buy & sell amazing gifts and décor
for all the special events & people in your life!
Our retail store closed as of July 1, 2014
Bear Essentials has been in the Craft & Gift Show business since 1984. We began with a small boutique in our home and over the years the shows grew to have over 200 vendors. We produced shows at the Arcadia Masonic Lodge, The Disneyland Hotel. The Marriott and Doubletree in Ontario, the Glendale Civic Auditorium and the Woodland Hills Hilton. We also produced outdoor shows/events at the Los Angeles County Fair and Universal City Walk.
We eventually opened a retail gift store in Arcadia and closed it on July 1, 2014 after 19 years. We have developed such a wonderful & loyal customer following that 100’s of our customers did not want us to disappear when the store closed. So, we are back to our “roots” and will now be producing craft & gift shows again in the beautiful Embassy Suites Hotel in Arcadia (across the street from our store location). We have always provided a fun and professional marketplace to buy and sell wonderful, quality products! The Embassy Suites is a beautiful & very busy hotel. There are several different eating options within the hotel, along with all the adjoining restaurants on Huntington Dr.
If you, or anyone you know would like to participate, please contact us. We are really looking forward to great shows in 2014, and even more in 2015! We will give you a $25.00 credit towards your fees if you refer a vendor to us and they participate in the show!!
Bear Essentials has never sold its mailing list or names to anyone. Susan and Dennis Pink have always had control of the names Bear Essentials Craft and Gift Shows and Bear Essentials Gift Shoppe. We are very happy with our location at the Embassy Suites Hotel in Arcadia and do not plan on moving the show to any other place.
Remaining dates for 2014 are as follows, all at the Embassy Suites, 211 E, Huntington Dr., Arcadia:
~Th.-Sat., Nov. 13-15, Hours: Th. –Fri. 9-9, Sat. 9-2
~Mon.-Thurs., Dec. 8-11, Hours: 9-9- all four days
There is plenty of FREE parking. We accept all major credit & debit cards.
Please join us for great & profitable events!
