We have vintage and retro items. We now have a shop for vintage smalls is www.Etsy.com/shop/3sisterssmalls. From Diane: When I was laid off from my job of 20 yrs I knew I had to find something to subsidize our income. My son and I were going to go into business together and restore wrought iron furniture for resell. He the master stone and tile mechanic and me restoring the iron to new beauty. We finished our first piece and were so excited, as it turned out beautiful! Tragically my 25 yr old son died in a house fire March of 2010. His father and I decided the table wasn't going anywhere. We would treasure it always. We wanted something beautiful to hang over the table and created a wrought iron "candlelier" from different pieces such as a planter,lighting parts, crystals and others. It is so beautiful hanging over the table and chairs and completes our outdoor living space.

My 2 sisters were excited and decided to join my efforts thus "Re-Treasured By 3 Sisters" which is our actual business name.
The 3 of us have been going to garage sales together since our children were very young buying household items, furniture and clothing to save money. In the years since it has become a hobby instead of a "must". We just love the hunt for that perfect item that was once someone else treasure. We started seeing things people were getting rid of as the basis for a "project" and started restoring and re-purposing them. It is so much fun and we just love to see the other one's ideas come to life! We have a true love for vintage everything! We were finding items that with just a bit of cleaning were perfectly usable and beautiful! We started adding pieces that we found to our shop and found that there are so many people with the same love we have for vintage finds. We now cater mostly to our vintage "treasures". We do still find items that sometimes call for a "new" look and we recreate them as our designer instincts drive us. Hope you enjoy viewing our collection as much as we have enjoyed designing, recreating, restoring and hunting them. Diane, Lori and Jeri
