Visited CB’s with my wife, WOW what a fabulous place, I do not want to give away the surprise, but what I can say is you will have a fascinating time. Be prepared to be pestered to buy a bear by your wife or children.

Hi there! I am really sorry but we do not allow dogs in our Gallery. However, we do allow dogs in the shop area and we do have outside seating in case anyone would like to sit and wait with their pooch. Thanks for asking!
