C&S Collectables was established in 1986 standing at fairs around the south of England selling ceramic collectable figurines. .
In 1992 C&S approached Wade Potteries, as they were then called, to have a figurine produced exclusively for the company. And it was Arthur Hare from the children’s book The Silent Butterfly by Caroline Parkes that they produced. This proved so succesful that other characters from the same book followed. With Andy Capp in 1994, C&S were the first to commission Wade to produce a licensed figure which was followed during the next few years with international licensed characters such as Betty Boop, Snoopy, Mr Magoo, Garfield, Mable Lucy Attwell characters, Gingie Bear, Thomas The Tank Engine and Friends, Rupert Bear and many other licensed characters produced in various limited editions.
In 1995 C&S took their first retail premises at 15 High Street, Arundel, West Sussex, moving to Quay House in the Autumn of 1997. 1997 was also the year of the first Wade Swap Meet, now in its 20th year and renamed The Wade Collectors Meet.
In 2001 C&S began wholesaling giftware and collectables and moved to its present location in Ford, two miles south of Arundel in 2002. It now supplies around 200 retailers in the UK as well as keeping Wade collectors happy with their direct mail order Betty Boop figurines.
C&S and the Wade Collectors Club Merged in 2015 and now are one Company - C&S Collectables Direct is a trading name of the Wade Collectors Club Ltd.
