  1. I found a yellow post card size with 5 brown bear punch outs, indicating Daddy Bear and 4 small bears. Bottom left of card, 1937 Bear Brand Hosiery Co.
    On opposite side of card, an interesting statement, “Boys and girls would be gay Wear BEAR BRAND HOSE for school or play!
    Good condition! Anyone interested in purchasing this card?

  2. I just found a lid from a “Bear Brand Hosiery Wears” box, and wondered if the company is still
    in business.
