Vintage Collectibles Repurposed Upcycled Handmade DIY Crafting

Welcome to LilacsNDreams Shop! As we can see I have not been on this page for quite some time. Ugghh!!!  I have not been totally ignoring my blog. My original blog page is with LilacsNDreams which is the main page to all of this, the starting point for this whole blog. You can either click on the link I’ve shared, or at the top you will see Home which you can click that too. 

My home page is where I generally share things I know, things I’ve learned, share what I have found, sometimes share things from others, and so on. This page that you have landed on now will slightly be changing. The biggest change will be me changing the name from LilacsNDreams Shoppe to LilacsNDreams Shop. I spent time, and have my domain bought for this name change as well. That will be LilacsNDreams Shop

Next, my biggest thing I wish to do with this page will be to show pictures of things I sell. Items I will be offering will be vintage collectibles, and I am enjoying and having fun with repurposed, upcycle, restyle, handmade, DIY, crafting, etc. I enjoy seeing possibilities with things I find while I am thrifting, yard saling, marketplace shopping, goodwill, and just so many places that treasures can be found! I will offer items as found. Sometimes items found might need a light cleaning, sometimes a touch of paint, sometimes uniting pieces making them unique can be done, and the possibilities are endless. I love the treasures I find, and the ones I create too. Unfortunately, I do not have the room to keep everything. I take pleasure in offering treasures to their forever homes, and sometimes they might be a gift for someone special too. 

Shipping will be done with USPS generally, and I will be using prices through Pirate Ship which offers just a little bit lower price than USPS too.

Payments will be with PayPal which is safe, and secure for payments to be made. I’ve used them for years, and have been comfortable with their service.

If you ever have a question, or maybe need more pictures of an item Please contact Me. I am happy to assist you. 

I appreciate the visits today, and hope to see you again. Stop by my home page with LilacsNDreams if you have a chance. Take care, and be safe everyone!

Vintage Collectibles Repurpose Upcycle DIY Restyle Handmade Treasures


Welcome to LilacsNDreams Shoppe! I’m happy to see you landed here. This page is an extension of my LilacsNDreams Blog which is also done with blogger. At the top of here you should also see LilacsNDreams home that you can click on too. This page had been established to offer some of my vintage collectibles that I offer for sale along with items that have been repurposed, upcycled, DIY, restyled, handmade. Sometimes treasures just need a simple dust, clean, wipe, or wash. Sometimes a piece found needs a new life put into it. That could consist of a little painting, minor touch up, maybe uniting another piece helps it, and there are so many possibilities! Instead of throwing things, and adding to the dumps why not bring the item back to life with the possibilities it could have? 

If you like you can visit my LilacsNDreams Shoppe at Etsy where purchases can be made. Or, if you contact me at, let me know the piece of interest, and I can invoice you with PayPal myself. I just need your email, and zip code to complete that invoice. Be a lot easier than signing in, and out of the selling platform when I can pretty much do the same here without all the extra steps. 

Thanks for visiting LilacsNDreams  at  LilacsNDreams Shoppe! Any questions just drop me a line, ok? Take care, and be safe till the next time.

Vintage Cross Stitch Country Crafts Anniversary Magazine July Aug 1987

 Welcome to LilacsNDreams Shoppe! Through the weekend I had an issue with my computer. There’s a chance I might need a new one. Gonna try one more person with it, and I’ll know then. Not pleased, but what can I do, right?

After dealing with the computer I was talking with my husband. While talking to him i felt the need to check my email account for Etsy. Glad I did! I made a sale! WooHoo!!

So, pictured you will see some of the listing for the item sold. This will ship out right away in the morning. Everything is completed , and ready for this shipment.

Remember, Mothers Day is fast approaching. I have some little treasures being offered that would be great for this occasion...along with 2 diamond rings too. Visit my Etsy Shop  for some of the treasures being offered.

Some will be vintage collectibles....which is most of the items at this time. While I am listing things I am slowly working on some crafting, and repurposing things too. I just completed a craft that I used some vintage wooden blocks with. I will let you know when I am offering it for sale. Working on another 1-2 pieces using wooden blocks so that I can post them all together.
