RiverOfTimeTreasures' Shop Announcement

Welcome to River of Time Treasures Etsy shop!! Thanks for visiting here. You know how they say, it only takes one bad apple to spoil the whole bunch.??!! Ever since March of 2012 I've been selling mostly unique pieces of Vintage Pyrex. I've learned so much about glassware, I've been pretty successful, and the best part, I've made some wonderful new online friends. And then it happened...a buyer who didn't like the condition of the product she purchased from me. Even tho, I just turned 60 years old, I'm still a kid at heart when it comes to getting my feelings hurt. The buyer was livid that I would not return her money, so she told the world in my public recommendations that I'm what gives Etsy a bad name and then she opened a "case" against me with Etsy AND PayPal, basically shutting my shop down until Etsy and PayPal made a decision in one of our favors. Eventually they both ruled in my favor, which was not a surprise because this customer was just flat out dishonest. But, because it took so long for the decisions to be made, I lost my enthusiasm for running my shop. Finally I've decided to return, but I'll. be going in a different direction. Im not sure what that direction is yet, but I'm back :-).

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!!!!
