I worked as an artist at Hallmark Cards in Kansas City for over 12 years (in another lifetime). I enjoyed a nice discount at the Halls department store across the street.
Even on sale items.
Like after-Christmas-marked-down ornaments.
I'd buy several of each kind of design I liked, because they were so cheap with my discount (95% off!)
I had 5 or 6 of these teddy bears.
At least 2 were given away as gifts.
I collected teddy bears at one time.
