Annie demonstrates her latest toy

Annie at the Edgebaston fair in March


I’m Annie and I have been collecting antiques and vintage toys from around the globe for countless years. I enjoy seeking out rare items of high quality that can be treasured by collectors for years to come.

Antiques of all sorts hold a fascination for me, especially tinplate toys and advertiques.  I love all things beautiful and fun, so you’ll see I have everything from Arts & Crafts pieces to penny toys, some of which are beautiful, some fun and some unusual.

Whether it’s Christopher Dresser, Lehmann or Bing that holds your interest,  I hope you’ll find some really unique items in these pages – the sort of thing that brings a smile to your face for sheer the beauty of it.

If you haven’t found exactly what you are looking for in Annie’s Attic, please let me know if I can help you locate it. Likewise, if you have a special item or collection of items that you think might have a place in Annie’s Attic, please use the ‘Contact Annie’ page as I am always interested in acquiring interesting and unique items for my collection.

Thank you for visiting Annie’s Attic and I hope at least some of the things in my attic brings you as much fun and joy as they have brought me.

Till next time, goodbye.
