About Past Wares

Our Service Pledge
I respond to all orders within 24 hours.
Authenticity of items listed on this guaranteed. I will never knowingly sell a fake or reproduction unless it is identified as such.

If an item has flaws, I will describe the flaws and take close up photos. Occasionally I will list an item with a chip because of the item's rarity or uniqueness.
About Us
I have been selling online since 2004 after retiring from the legal profession and moving to Florida in 2000. I am collector and selling is a hobby.

I sell EAPG (many unique forms and patterns) and Elegant Depression glass, sparkling vintage crystal stemware. I have an inventory with many Fostoria, Cambridge, Duncan Miller, and Heisey bowls, stemware, plates, and tableware such as butter dishes, compotes, celery vases, and other pieces.

I also offer a variety of Daisy Button items. Buyers are frequently cautioned about buying Daisy Button from unknown sellers. I assure you that my Daisy Button items are as described and that I can tell the difference between antique Daisy & Button pieces and reproductions. I guarantee that the Daisy Button items are identified with extreme care and extensive research. Items are identified by specific makers based on reference books showing specific items in catalogs. Buy with confidence.

In addition, I have a large collection of Made in Japan decorative ceramic items made by Otagiri, Lefton, Fitz & Floyd and others. Decorative collectible music boxes, vases, perfume bottles and other home decor accents are also available.

I offer many Otagiri items which can create a kitchen set. The more items you buy, the more you save on shipping costs. Some of the items can be discounted when purchased as a set. Otagiri was a distributor to top end department stores for more than 47 years before being purchased by Enesco. These pieces are not your typical made in Japan collectibles. These pieces were made primarily between 1970-1980 and are for the most part animal themed. The detail is outstanding.

I will entertain REASONABLE offers whether or not the make an offer setting is checked.

Items are accurately described and pattern names are correctly identified to the best of my ability. Flaws, if any, are photographed and described. I have a library of glassware identification books, subscribe to a pattern glass identification service to help identify patterns, and belong to glassware groups who help identify patterns. I am also a member of the Early American Pattern Glass Society.

Please pay within 2 days after you have made a commitment to buy! If for some reason, you need more time, please let me know.

Payments can be made via PAYPAL, or PERSONAL CHECK. For items over $100 use the Pay Pal Bill me Later option. It is quick and easy to set up and you can extend your payments over several months without interest. I will consider offering a layaway plan on an individual basis. Just ask. Amazon Payments is not offered as a payment option as of June 1, 2014.

Shipping is prompt and all items are shipped with delivery confirmation number. Items are packed well to protect against breakage during shipping (bubble wrap and peanuts - not newspaper). Shipping is combined when possible. I will ship USPS flat rate or USPS priority, or FedEx home only. Please change the zip code to your own or the shipping costs will be incorrect.

If you purchase more than one item, please wait for a total invoice before paying since shipping costs may not be accurate.

I try to price my items to be competitive with other similar items on the internet and my prices fluctuate with the current market value.
