About Us
Welcome to Tami's Treasures.


Nothing gives me more pleasure than matching a great item with a new owner. 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 offer.

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 and I often double box to protect your item.

If you have any questions about any of my shop items, please email,

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 and the Packaged Weight of the item. 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.
