There is a huge collectors market for toys, ranging from Dinky vehicles, clockwork toys to train sets, and often producing staggering prices. Toys are sold every month at our general collectables sales where notable items include a box of Sindy clothes which sold recently to an internet bidder for over £700.

"Burstow & Hewett - one of my favourite auction houses in the South East. I've always had excellent service, and am a great fan of the slightly quirky General Sales where there are still bargains and treasures to be found."
