Reserving A "Genista Bear"
Should you wish to reserve a "Genista Bear" please email me at email@example.com
Bears may be marked "RESERVED" for up to 48 hours while payment arrangements are confirmed. Once payment has been received, the bear will then be marked "SOLD".
Should you wish to reserve a bear for longer, with a small deposit, please email me with your requirements OR do consider my Lay-A-Way Service below.....
A Layaway Service is available to all of my customers. I realise that buying a Collectible Bear can be an expensive hobby. Layaway enables you to spread the cost of your purchase over three months with a 10% deposit. Interest free layaway is available on all items over £50. Payment is made by three equal monthly payments. Item is dispatched after the final payment is made. Payments can be made by cheque/postal order or online via PayPal. Should the Layaway not be completed through no fault of The House Of Genista, then a 20% handling fee will be deducted before any balance is returned. Please email to arrange a Layaway or for further details or if you have any questions. Use the link below to contact The House Of Genista Layaway Service.

Product Images And Descriptions
Every effort is made to ensure the product image, colour representation and item descriptions on this website are a fair representation of the actual products and colours, but some colourings may vary slightly from the colours shown due to photographic process.
With regard to my Antique/Vintage Collection, although I provide photographic and descriptive accounts, it must be realised that due to the age of these bears and various conditions, it is not always possible to cover every minute detail in a description. Some wear must be expected with Antique/Vintage Bears. Old and Antique bears are often in suprisingly good condition, but after many years of play, often followed by decades of neglect will inevitably lead to have wear on some of our teddies. With this in mind it is important to note that all descriptions are as full and accurate as seen from my perspective as is realistically possible. The House Of Genista cannot be held responsible for minor omissions in descriptions or minor colour variations as this would be very difficult due to space. Ages given for the bears are approximate and cannot be totally guaranteed. However, please feel free to email me with any questions regarding any of the bears that I have for sale. If you are unsure about a purchase, I will happily provide a more detailed description and/or further photographs on request. My priority is customer satisfaction. Also, if you are not completely happy with a purchase, you may return it to me with no quibbles. (Please see returns)
All items offered for sale on this website are guaranteed to be in perfect condition - apart from my "Antique/Vintage" Collection of course. Most of the bears on this site are "Collectibles" and are not suitable for children, unless otherwise stated.
If I have got anything wrong, please do not hesitate to let me know. Email me at email@example.com
