About Us
Welcome to Tami's Treasures.


PAYMENTS: I accept PayPal, Money Orders, and Personal Checks. Payment in US Funds is appreciated within 3 days for Paypal and 10 days for mailed payments. Please e-mail me if you will be mailing your payment. Paypal e-checks will delay shipping (4-10) business days. Paypal will notify me when your e-check clears and I will ship promptly.

I don't offer a FORMAL Lay-a-way Plan but I will work with you to make your special wish come true.

SHIPPING: Clicking on "SHIPPING INFO" on any ITEM page will tell you how much Shipping and Handling will be for that item. It is calculated by the Postal ZIP CODE, for Priority Mail Domestic Service, with your Zone and the Packaged Weight of the item. I ONLY SHIP TO THE USA (ALL 50 STATES)------No International Shipping. The price quoted for shipping will be PRIORITY MAIL unless your package is under 13 ounces in which case the shipping will be First Class Parcel. I ship with Free USPS Tracking and your item will be insured at NO extra cost to you. USPS is now providing FREE insurance for items $50 and under. If I self insure your item, this means if the item is damaged in transit, I will reimburse you for the cost of the item and shipping costs upon return of the item.

I can usually combine items, at my discretion, to save you postage. I will respond to your order within 24 hours in most cases and usually ship in 24 - 48 hours after payment. My shipping days are Monday through Friday.

Inquiries about my items are always welcome.

One of my main loves is to research the items I sell. I have collected many reference books over the years and I can usually offer a printed reference for the items I have listed. Nothing gives me more pleasure than matching a great item with a new owner. I have been selling antique and vintage items for twenty-two years, nineteen of those years have been online and in brick and mortar shops. I know how important it is to write good descriptions and take good clear pictures. If you have any questions about any of my shop items, please email.

Offering 99% American glass of all types. Vintage and antique glass collectibles might include glass from the Victorian Era, Early American Pattern Glass (EAPG), Roaring Twenties, Depression Era Glass including Elegant Blown and Pressed, Kitchen glass, Mid Century, and into the 1970's and 1980's. Antique and vintage pottery, porcelain, and stoneware from the Nineteenth and Twentieth Centuries are also offered. You might even find a few pieces of Restaurant Ware and advertising collectibles from time to time.

Children's items are also an interest of mine and I will usually have several nice choices for the wee ones which might also appeal to Grandmas and Mommies.

I work out of my home and respond to emails usually within 2 - 24 hours. On most occasions (Monday through Friday) I will ship your item within 24 - 36 hours of cleared payment. Your item will be well packaged and shipped USPS Priority Mail. I use new or clean recycled packing materials.

SHIPPING: Clicking on "SHIPPING INFO" on any ITEM page will tell you how much Shipping and Handling will be. It is calculated by the Postal Service, Priority Mail, with your Zone, Packaged Weight of the item, and the measurement of the package. I try to keep shipping costs at a minimum for you without compromising your item. USPS Tracking and Insurance is always provided for your shipment at no cost to you. USPS Priority Mail automatically includes insurance for items valued at $50 or less. Combining orders will also save shipping costs. This can be accomplished most of the time at my discretion. If I feel your package cannot be safely combined I will work out the best way to package your shipment with your approval. And, I will always pack your items with care.

Living near the old river town of Alton, Illinois is an advantage. This area offers fine antiques, stoneware, country primitives, and collectibles of all kinds.
