Forget the teddy bear’s picnic, all the bears are hanging out in Curiosity Corner. This quirky little shop, nestled in the corner of Church Street, is home to the largest collection of Charlie Bear and Steiff brand bears in the UK. It is a collectors’ paradise holding exclusive, limited edition and ultra-rare stock thanks to its prestigious Steiff Gold Button and Charlie Bear Paw Store accreditations.
People visit from all over to world to buy bears from Curiosity Corner and the showroom really is a sight to behold with every type of bear you can imagine and some you won’t have dreamed of. Owner Ian is a font of knowledge on the art of bear collecting and there is nothing he doesn’t know about these special items.
But it’s not all about bears. Curiosity Corner has been providing tourists and locals alike with affordable gifts, stationery, greeting cards, homeware and jewellery for over 20 years. If you’re looking for a sentimental token of your time in Lavenham, you’ll find lots of Lavenham branded items too, from tea towels, to fridge magnets, pens and more.
