About background.jpg

My name is Joyce and for as long as I can remember I have been drawn to old and beautiful things. Things different from the every day. 


Yesterdays Collectables have been trading in Wareham for over twenty years now and yet I still get a buzz from finding new, exciting treasures.  A collector first and foremost; I love the thrill of finding something a little bit different that can be added to my collection. I adore my job, getting up early to scour flea markets and antique fayres, never knowing quite what I might find...


Travelling all over the country gives me opportunities to source unique and captivating pieces to fill the shop and adorn the homes of my lovely customers.  

Yesterdays is located in Wareham, a picturesque Saxon walled Town,  full of independent shops, cafes and restaurants and home to the Rivers Frome and Piddle with Wareham Forest surrounding. 

Living in Wareham for over thirty years I still appreciate the breathtaking surroundings and local friendships I have established.

Yesterdays endeavour to stock a mixture of old and new; catering for many tastes and reflecting the of individuality of visitors from across the globe. 


We try to stock as many quality British brands as possible. 

We started stocking Dennis China Works right at the beginninging of their launch and are proud to be able to offer a range of their unique pieces. They certainly are something special.

Poole pottery is another of our favourites, local to Dorset and improving with time, we always have an interesting selection. 

Emma Bridgewater is another popular choice, made in Stoke-on-Trent, practical and hardwearing as well as asthetically pleasing. 

Jonathan Harris Studio Glass is something else to look out for. You won’t miss it when you see it; the transparency of the colours and pattern seem to almost capture light.


Yesterdays is a small shop in a small town but we are full to the brim with pieces that will enhance your life and home. We hope to see you soon and will try our upmost to help you find exactly what you are searching for.
