About Me


Hi, I would like to welcome you to my web site. I know there is always a leap of faith when dealing with someone over the Internet, so I would like to provide you with a little bit of background information about me. If there is anything else that you would like to know, I would love to hear from you.


    My name is Jennifer. My interest in trading cards started when a friend was given one of the early Princess beanies as a birthday present by her sister. Since then, we were commissioned to hunt out bears for her, their children and friends. Of course I started to get a few for myself as well! Well that was it - I was hooked just like everyone else. Then the Les and Sue Fox trading cards were created and I started to get a few packs. It was a new experience for me since I grew up in England - no baseball cards or anything like that. The only kind of collectible cards they have in England are tea cards (and how much tea can anyone drink) or bubble gum cards (never did like the stuff). So I guess a part of my childhood was missing in American terms. I moved to the US in 1983 and have lived in both California and now in Oregon. Anyways, back to the cards. I had a complete set of the commons and quite a few other sets that needed just one or two more cards, so I had to buy another pack, or two.... I resisted the temptation to buy the Ty series 1 cards when the first came out, but then at last I succumbed. I started to trade some of them on-line to try and complete the set and was impressed by the friendliness of all of the people that I dealt with. It became difficult to trade low level cards for the silvers or other hard to find cards, so I started to buy a few and sell a few hoping to pay the way to build my collection. Well, I got a bit carried away and now have thousands of cards from series 1 to 4 and just about every type of Beanie card ever produced.
    With this many cards, I thought it would be interesting to try and create a web page. The first incarnation of the site went live over the July 4th weekend 1999, so has now been live for over 17 years and I think it is now the only site left with complete information and cards for sale. It took a while before I got my first customer, but it was such a thrill to get the first one. Since then I have built up a lot of Beanielad web friends and have enjoyed doing it a lot.

    When not doing Beanie stuff, I am a photographer and freelance writer. I live in Beaverton, about 10 miles southwest of Portland and like to get out into my garden whenever possible, although in winter that doesn't happen too much because it is always raining !!
