Announcement   I'm a former American History teacher who now enjoys spending my free time searching thrift stores, antique stores, estate sales, garage sales and any place with hidden historical treasures of Pyrex or other vintage glassware. These treasures are then treated with love, Magic Erasure, Bar Tender's Friend and Blue Dove or whatever they may need to look terrific again. I also make home made items from the beach and river beds just because the outdoors is also another of my favorite places to search for hidden treasures. Please have fun looking through my shop and if you have any questions or suggestions, just convo me - I love talking with other treasure hunters!

I used to have this site to sell wine bottles and glass blocks that I lit up and decorated. The previous name of my shop was Firefly Crafts. I stopped making and selling bottles in July of 2010.

I'm very happy to announce that River Of Time Treasures opened in March of 2012. I sold one item in March and one item in April and then things finally took off in May!!!!

About

A LOVER OF VINTAGE COOKWARE WHO CAN'T COOK!!!

I originally opened my shop named FireflyCrafts1, where I repurposed glass wine bottles into lights with paintings on them using stained glass paint. They were not a hit, lol. So I kept the shop and meanwhile found myself falling in love with things of the past...mainly kitchen items I could remember watching my Mom and Grandmothers using.
One thing led to another, with Etsy opening up a section for the sale of Vintage goods, I came back. I renamed my shop RiverOfTimeTreasures, because whenever I shopped I felt like I was on a treasure hunt of timeless items.
I originally sold all types of vintage/antique goods from luggage to a wooden bubble blower, lol. Now I concentrate on the colorful Pyrex dishes of the past, from the 1940's through the 1980's. It is absolutely amazing to me that Pyrex had so many patterns through the years - I grew up with the Primary Colors. At our house, yellow was always for potato salad, and I can remember making our Christmas Cookie frosting in the red bowl.
And then I discovered that beginning in the 1950's Pyrex also made special Promotional items every year, for just that one year. Well, I was off on another treasure hunt to find as many of these as I could. Little did I know in the beginning that some of them cost in the thousands of dollars - I understand why, but I sure couldn't afford those prices.
So I've tried to stay with the most popular standard sets of Pink Gooseberry, Turquoise Butterprint, New Dots, Friendship, Rainbow Stripes, and of course The Primary Colors.
In case you're wondering, I do use Pyrex in my home - the newer Shenadoah of the 1980's goes perfectly in my kitchen.
I guess I love Pyrex so much because it's a link to my Mom and her Mom and a way for me to still stay close to them. Even though today, I stay as far away from our kitchen as humanly possible, I still love all my memories.
I hope you love my shop and can find that connection to the past as I have.

Additional policies and FAQs
I have many happy customers and that is my goal. I spend a lot of time cleaning, shining, painting, or whatever it takes to make my treasures reliable and desireable. As a former high school teacher, I learned a long time ago to be fair, and that is my goal as an Etsy store owner.
