Welcome to Help Empty My Attic

Teddy Bears, Lead Figures and Clockwork Toys Teddy Bears Lead Figures Tinplate, Clockwork and Mechanical Toys

We specialise in selling vintage and collectable toys, games, teddy bears and other childhood memorabilia.  Many of the vintage toys that we have in stock are over 20 years old and pre-date modern safety regulations.  As such, a large part of what we sell is only suitable for adults and we recommend that items are not appropriate for use by children under the age of 14 years.  

As well as selling, we also buy collections to replenish the attic.  If you have any vintage or collectable toys or bears that you want to sell, please contact us.  We are also happy to hire items out for use in films and TV.  The most recent project we were involved with was the new BBC Drama, Remember Me, for which we provided a range of Edwardian toys for the attic scenes.

Hello All,

Some of you may have noticed that we now have a padlock next to our web address in the address thingummy in your browser.  This is because all of our pages are now served using HTTPS.  The explanation behind this is generally quite boring unless you're a techie, but what it means is that whenever you load a page on our site the connection between you and us is encrypted, so nobody can snoop on what you're doing.  Until now, this has only been the case when you use the checkout and are redirected to one of our payment providers (Paypal or Amazon), but now this applies to the whole site.

If you have any questions about this, please ask via the contact us page (see the link at the bottom of the page).

I thought a week off would seem like longer, but our next fairs are upon us. This weekend we'll be making our first trip to the Alton Teddy Bear Festival in Hampshire on Saturday 20th, with our usual range of vintage and artist bears looking for new homes, Then on Sunday 21st we'll be back at the NEC Toy & Collectors fair with as many vintage toys as we can fit in the van after the bears have gone in. Or if you can't wait that long you can always visit the website http://helpemptymyattic.co.uk/tedd…/artist-collectable-bears
