About Abbey Attic

At Abbey Attic, we simply love vintage collectibles!

There’s nothing like the feeling of nostalgia you get from vintage homeware and gardenware from yesteryear.

Abbey Attic is a family run business set up by Sue Banister.

Sue formerly worked as a production manager for regional television. She spent many years sourcing appropriate props and set dressings and this honed her love for vintage pieces.

Sue's passion and enthusiasm shows through the ever changing stock on this website and we hope you return regularly to see the latest vintage collectibles.

The majority of our stock is old, second hand and worn and we cannot accept any responsibility for items that are worn or damaged. Our items are sold as pieces of history and, therefore, we cannot guarantee the functionality/serviceability of the goods for everyday use. We will endeavour to give as full a description as possible advising you of any faults/damage on each item. We welcome questions about our items but such enquiries must be made prior to sale. New items will be marked as such.


Delivery will be within 4 – 5 working days of placement of the order by the most economic and convenient means possible and will be on the weight of articles purchased. Every effort will be made to provide as quick and efficient service as possible. Orders up to 2kg will be sent with Royal Mail and orders over 2kg will be sent via courier and will need to be signed for. You can include any special delivery instructions when you place your order, but please note that should you request that a parcel be left without a signature, then this is done so at your own risk and we will not be able to process any subsequent claim for loss or damage.
