Teds and Treasures has been created to bring you a collection of Vintage Teddy Bears and Jewellery. Since I was very young I have always had a passion for collecting, particularly anything that is aged and has character. Over the years this has developed into a love for collecting Bears and Jewellery in particular. Recently I have been encouraged by those around me to share my ever growing treasure trove of Bears, Jewellery and finds through this website, selling them to others so they can enjoy them just as much as I do. I always seek out Bears that have character and charm. The mohair collectables I tend to specialise in can be a great investment as well as a loveable addition to any home. I have a mixture of precious and dress vintage jewellery and am drawn towards costume jewellery that is well made and has stood the test of time. Oozing character and age many of the pieces immediately attract peoples attention. You will also find a section called "Other Collectable Bears" that offers Bears that are collectable but not quite vintage, or in some cases Bears that I just found too sweet not to buy. I hope you enjoy looking at my treasures and please visit regularly as I am always adding new little gems as I find them.
