Abracadabra was opened in the autumn of 2000 by Malcolm Sayers and Marsha Davison. The business is now run just by Marsha, providing friendly and personal service from the shop in Saffron Walden, a small market town in a very picturesque part of Essex, very close to the borders of Hertfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Suffolk.
The opening hours are: 10.00 - 16.00 Monday to Friday and 10.00 - 17.00 Saturday.
The shop is open on some bank holidays but not all of them so it's always best to check if you're planning a visit.
Here's where you'll find us:
Abracadabra Teddy Bears
8a Cross Street
Tel: +44 (0)1799 527222
We stock an extensive range of artist bears, sourced from all over the world, preferring to offer work from artists who make their own patterns from original designs.
Also stocked are many well know brands: Steiff, Merrythought, Hermann Teddy Original, Charlie Bears including the Isabelle Collection, Hansa, Götz Dolls, Gund, Dou Dou, Histoire d'Ours, Ragtales, Happy Horse, Beatrix Potter, Paddington Bear, Sherlock Holmes and much more.
We aim to have something for everyone from pocket money toys to special and unique items for the dedicated collector. Not everything we stock is on the website.
As well as new items we also have the Orphanage section where we market and handle the adoption of pre-owned artist and vintage teddy bears for their owners. We started the service in 2006 and it has proved to be a great success.
You can find out more about the Orphanage and our re-homing programme here.
We send parcels, well packed and secure, all over the world with Royal Mail and reliable courier services. Layaway is available and it's always worthwhile getting in touch to discuss your requirements as we are flexible and happy to tailor an arrangement to suit you whenever we can.
