Why Buy From I Love Collectables?

I Love Collectables has been on-line since 2009 and was founded on over 35 years collecting experience and an eclectic taste driven by anything unique, charming and collectable.

I Love Collectables is run and administered by one person with a love for all rare and vintage collectables: My name is Walied, but all my friends call me Walls!

Before I became a dad, I was in the legal profession but I gave it all up and for the last ten years have been a Stay-at-Home Dad to my three little nippers! Trust me, a much harder job! Loll!

I have always had a passion for collecting, antiques and collectables, and offer a fully tailored and personal service – Just like walking into a traditional shop, but online!
