About Us


**Please Note, our shop in Killamarsh is now closed but please contact us if you have enquiries about bears**

The Bear Emporium is Sheffield’s leading Specialist Bear Shop and Teddy Hospital, stocking a huge range of collectable bears and also cute and cuddlies for the younger ones.

Established in 2002 at Ridgeway Craft Centre, The Bear Emporium started life stocking mainly hand made artist bears produced on site and a range of cuddlies from companies such as Russ & Gund. Over the years the range of bears has grown to cover practically all of the well known collectable suppliers such as Steiff, Charlie Bears, Isabelles, Steiner, Teddy Hermann Original, Merrythought, Deb Canham plus many more.

One of a kind artist bears are still made on site under the name of ‘Wishing Well Bears’ , these hand made mohair bears are made in the traditional way using cotter pin joints and glass eyes , they can be made to order under special commission. A small range of other artist bears have now also been brought in to supplement our range from some of our closest ‘Bear community’ colleagues.

Since moving to Killamarsh in October of 2009 we have been able to display our range of items much better, the shop is much bigger than at Ridgeway with a nice window in which we change the display on a regular basis.

Throughout the year we attend various craft events and bear fairs around the country in an effort to share the wonders of teddy bears. Check the 'See Us At' page for events we will be attending in your area.
At our ''Teddy Bear Hospital'' we sympathetically repair and restore your well loved bears, from cleaning to dog attacks! All are given special TLC whilst in our care.
A warm welcome will always be given by Lynn & Barry who can offer friendly advice on anything 'Beary'.
