It’s the Black Bear! Who knew?
Well, no wonder The VIRGINIA SHOPPER’S favorite shop, Virginia Born and Bred, has Sam-the-Bear as a front door mascot to welcome visitors! There’s a mini Sam inside too.
Virginia also has a:
- State Beverage – Milk (Let’s Paaaaarty!)
- State Bird – Cardinal
- State Dance – The Reel
- State Fish – Brook Trout
- State Dog (not an animal?) – American Fox Hound
- State Flower – Dogwood
- State Tree – Dogwood
- and (no kidding) State Insect – Tiger Swallowtail Butterfly
And of course, there’s always Virginia’s official tourism slogan,
“Virginia is for Lovers!”
Both the Mini-Sam-the-Bear and the Virginia is for Lovers T-Shirts are available in-store or by telephone order only: 540 463-1832. But, be sure to browse the Virginia Born and Bred online catalog to find other fabulous treasures!
