Eclectic, Unique and Whimsical Antique and Collectible Items for the discerning collector.
About Carolyn's Timeless Treasures
Our Service PledgeI want you to love your purchase, so please be sure to ask questions before purchasing. Because many of the items come from auctions and other third party sources, provenance is not always able to be authenticated. If I have information to authenticate an item, I will be pleased to share it.
About UsI am the custodian of the treasures and memories of other people until I choose to pass them on to others to cherish. My husband and I spend time together searching for lovely and unusual things that call to us. We view ourselves as the rescuers of memories and heirlooms of other lives and as such we treasure the items that we sell. I have been selling antiques and collectibles since 1999 in a bricks and mortar mall and on the internet. I collect Early American Pattern Glass and have personal collections of EAPG in the patterns Button Band and Jersey Lily as well as a collection of Victorian glass novelties. I am a member of the Early American Pattern Glass Society. I also love buttons and sewing collectibles and am a member of the Gateway Button Club and the National Button Society. Recently I have also increased my interest in antique postcards and other ephemera. Please come and visit--I hope that you will find something that you cannot live without! All reasonable offers will be considered. Here are some comments from previous customers.
