Memory Bears & Custom Keepsakes by ReMinkie

Memory Bear and Custom PillowFor over 20 years, Rita Glosser has been creating memory bears in memory and honor of loved ones.

Commemorate a loved one or celebrate a milestone (birthday, wedding, anniversary, retirement, new baby, new home, etc.)

Rita transforms your furs, fabric, neckties, and more into high-quality, fully-jointed memory bears and custom keepsakes.

Do you have old furs hanging in your closet or baby blankets stuffed in trunks? Rita can craft memory bears from all kinds of materials, including mink, neckties, jeans, sports jackets, shirts, blankets, wedding gown, uniforms, robes — whatever you send to her to create a lasting keepsake for you or a loved one.
