Purveying Antiques & Vintage Items Domestic & International
Our original selling venue "Tillies Treasures" was humbly started on a piece of property next to Tillie's parents house. About 2 acres. It began as an outdoor weekend market of family & friends.
After a couple of years Tillie & Vern decided to couple with cousins Shirley & Joe and take the market indoors by purchasing a building near the family homestead.
Many of the family & friends came along.
It was a slow beginning and an evolutionary process!
It became over 6,000+ square feet, 3 buildings connected by enclosed sections. Floor to ceiling, beautifully displayed, clean & organized, everything under the sun!
People came from neighboring states and Canada as well!
Many of our customers became life long friends.
It was a place you could spend hours in and revel in all things wonderful vintage!
Home decor & Glasswares abound, Vintage Clothing & Accessories Corner, A Country Kitchen, Vintage Lighting Department, Hardware Dept., Toy Room, Furniture, Elements for Creating and so much more!
It was a wonderful time! We had the luxury of purveying vintage items that are now hard to find for moderate priced resale. We lived some of the best times of enjoying great vintage items!
Eventually Shirley & Joe retired.
And the shop continued on.
In 2000 Vern was diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease. We closed that year and liquidated via auction.
It was a sad time for us all. We knew we were going to miss all the great people who had been coming to our shop for so many years!
In 2005 Vern passed away.
Tillie still having immense joy in vintage & antique items and having a lot in storage that was never brought to the shop, decided to take Tillies Treasures online.
When ebay became an environment that was not supportive of our business ethics, we opened on Etsy this past year.
It has been a wonderful experience!
We added UberLiciousArt.com to our shop.
By spring 2013 this will represent OOAK Designer Jewelry & Accessories, Bridal & Special Occasion and Saree Jewelry. All handcrafted & Personalized Orders as well.
We have been blessed with a rich history of creative talent in our family. We look forward to sharing that with you!
As our family is aging and changing we are parting with some of our personal collections of over 50 years.
Feel free to inquire if you do not find that which you seek listed!
We look forward to serving you hoping you find some favorite treasures from us here!
