The Color Of Happiness

There is just something about the way kitchens, and the memories made in them, stay with us. A sound, a scent, or the sight of grandma's mixing bowls can send us back with the crispest clarity. Kitchens can take us home and make us home, so we feel they should inspire happiness not only in the moment we use them, but because we remember them.

We have both had a life-long interest in history. As a girl, Stefanie wanted to be Indiana Jones, she participated in archaeological digs in high school, and worked in a Civil War Museum. Bruce was exploring the old abandoned buildings and digging bottles around the small mid western town where he grew up. Our collective interest in history and artifacts connected to the past began to express itself in our home.

We love to cook and often include our kids in the prep work. On one such occasion we had a [modern] baking dish explode, taking out the oven door and sending shards of glass flying. That experience led us onto the path of discovery about glass and history that would one day find expression in the little shop we call Vetera. We wanted to find durable, reliable items for the kitchen. And of course we looked to the past, we found such happy, colorful pieces from the 30s to the 70s and started scooping up Fire-King, Pyrex, and Hazel Atlas, filling our shelves from a world of vintage kitchen collectibles we never knew existed.

Our interest only grew from there, and then came the shop, as we discover new items and bits of information about them, maybe we are preserving some of the colorful history these items represent.
We enjoy going and finding new pieces, and though it may not be as exciting as being chased by a giant rolling boulder, it has it's moments, and we love doing it.

That's the color of happiness, the setting for the moments we share with those we love and memories in the making. We're making memories with our family and friends in technicolor and we hope, in a small way, to bring you something that inspires joy in your home as well.

From our family to yours, welcome to Vetera.
