Announcement   Vintage items featuring glassware, china and pottery and lots of other vintage treasures can be found here with new items being added frequently. I'm so glad you are visiting my shop and I hope that you see something that interests you. Just about every item that I list is from a dear friend's life-long collection and she really had a little bit of everything. If you are interested in something in my shop but have questions about it, please feel free to contact me.

I will gladly ship internationally. Just send me a message by clicking on the contact button and I will calculate the postage before you make the purchase. For all purchases, I refund overages on postage if I have estimated too high.

I often list an item as being prior to 1994 simply because I am sure it is vintage but I have no way of knowing when exactly in a date range the item was made. So rather than make it up or guess, I am just being safe and listing it as vintage. If I know the date range the item was manufactured I will state in within the listing.

My friend just loved her gift of these two teacups and saucers. They made her day! Thank-you so much for your prompt and courteous service. I would definitely do business with you again in the future. You are very helpful to your customers.

Thank you! This is exactly what I wanted as I have order three different milk glass 'vases' to put succulents in. I appreciate your sweet card and speedy delivery!

About

Vintage treasures from glass to paper

I am slowly going through an airplane hangar full of vintage items. Some are on shelves, grouped together with like items but many are in unmarked boxes. I have to unwrap each item. dust it off, figure out what it is, photograph it, research prices and then get it listed. I usually try to list something similar once an item sells. Sometimes I get on a roll and will list several like items in a row. I honestly have thousands of items yet to list.

I am no expert on antiques, but I am learning something new every day, that's for sure. Not only have I attended shows over the years and collected my own items, I have also inherited Mrs. Wells' extensive reference library primarly focusing on glassware and pottery.

The best part of finding the time to go through the hangar is spending time with my dear neighbor, Mr. Wells, who is now 93 years old. He helped put everything in there after his wife packed it all up. She spent a lifetime buying and selling her treasures. She had a store at one time and also used to set up at antique shows throughout Las Vegas in the 1970s and 1980s. Now that she has passed, the two of us are enjoying finding homes for her life's work. He enjoys when I read him an e-mail I've received from someone who is so excited because they have found that missing piece to a set, or that something they bought from us has brought back great memories.

Welcome to Wishing Wells Glass. Thanks for visiting my shop. Everything I am listing is from one person's estate and she truly had a little bit of everything. I was fortunate to inherit her extensive library with books on the different areas that she collected which is helping me to identify items that were not already marked. I do not claim to be an expert and do not do this for a living, but I am doing the best I can to accurately list and describe the items. All items are vintage to antique and as such will have some wear and tear. I will always list any damage that I am aware of and will do the best I can to point it out in pictures. Please feel free to contact me if you have questions or feel I have listed something inaccurately. I am happy to learn something new about an item.

I am happy to ship internationally. Please send me an e-mail and I will figure out the exact postage and edit the listing for your country. I do prefer to add insurance for international deliveries which protects both of us.

I am not out to make any money on shipping or handling and am doing my best to estimate the costs. If you are making multiple purchases, please contact me prior to making the purchase and I will gladly calculate an exact shipping cost for you. Also, if shipping seems excessive on an item you are interested in, please contact me as I am happy to figure out the exact cost based on your zip code.

I recycle boxes and shipping materials whenever possible.
