This is such a beautiful glass bowl. It looks so much brighter than in the picture and is a very substantial, weighty piece. I was pleasantly surprised. Packaging and shipping for this item was great.

About

Our story, our journey...

Welcome to YesterYears –where each found treasure has a story and an ongoing journey.

Being around vintage items brings a sense of peace and comfort. We each get attached and sentimental for found objects in different ways, and sometimes quite surprised on what makes each of us ‘tick’!

We truly enjoy the adventure in the search and the passion and love in sharing one’s history. We find sentiment and intriguing value and life through our finds. If only we can keep everything!!!! But we can’t, as our daughter often reminds us with the occasional comment of ‘do you really need that?, I mean really?!?!?" or when she rolls her eyes and shakes her head with her beautiful smirk as we ask her to help us unload the car. This is where YesterYears has come into our lives in the most heartfelt way, giving purpose and a way to continue our passions and adventures as we love finding new homes for ‘things’ that otherwise may be deep in closets, basements, or tucked away in a box someplace in an attic, or sadly in a dump site.

We love the memories and fantasy that come with vintage and collectibles, and we hope you enjoy what we have to offer.

Aside from these adventures and journeys for vintage and retro finds, we really do enjoy each other’s works, collaborations, and creations. You'll often see Lisa taking photographs of sunflowers, birds, and the gorgeous areas we travel through and you'll easily find Li knee deep in one project or another, whether it is playing with rocks, dirt, or creating her next stained glass sculpture or building and designing her next ultimate repurposed and functional art project. We love life, love living it and certainly sharing it with others.

Etsy has been an amazing learning experience, full of wonderful people and we hope to continue and grow within this community.

Thank you for visiting our shop and getting to know us a little bit better, warm regards,
Li and Lisa
