yes, I'm a genX~er and yes, I remember receiving and giving Lucy Bear cards. I loved her whimsical illustrations so much that in 1989 I bought a Lucy Bear baby book for my first daughter...which I still have and it's stuffed to the gills and actually filled out... like I said she's my FIRST daughter...I would show you but that would involve moving a tv to get to her hope chest...so maybe another day:)
Lucy Rigg is a Seattle artist,
in the 70s she handmade dough figures she called "Rigglets"
and sold them in Seattle street markets.
gotta. love. that.
a trademark search shows this description of
"Small Decorative Objects-Namely,
Small Figures of Bears and People Made Out of Baker's Clay
(Salt, Flour, and Water).

According to the Saint Louis Post Dispatch
July 30 1990,in an article titled
"Home is Where the Business is" written when
Lucy was, "in town to autograph bears at two of the St.Louis shops that carry her wares, Filigree's and Cordially Yours."
Lucy began drawing bears in 1969
" Rigg drew her first teddy bears 21 years ago,
when she was pregnant...an interior decorator, married..."the article describes her as a "lanky Seattle artist (who) presides over a veritable empire of bearobilia, under the labels Lucy & Me and Lucy & Company."
