About

LisaLoot...Find your collecting or creative bliss!

It all started almost 18 years ago with a mason jar full of beautiful sparkly beads that I picked up at a local vintage shop and saying to myself "some day I'm going to do something with these."

I was busy with three young children and a husband that traveled full time. I tried being a graphic artist, painting designs on children's clothing... it just wasn't quite what I was meant for.

Still in the thick of a busy family life, we moved from my beloved Chicago to the suburbs for a quieter one. BUT, I was struggling with my identity... who am I as an individual? One day I walked into the most wonderful vintage shop. It was only open on weekends and the owner would fashion the most enticing window display for the week so when the weekend came around, people were bursting in.

I talked that shop owner into giving me a job. I worked on Friday and Saturday nights. It was my getaway, chance to be a grown up, have adult conversation and oh yes! Play vintage dress up!

The shop owner saw that I was interested in designing jewelry, and really encouraged me to do so. I had this idea that I only wanted to use vintage components, nothing new. So I began the hunt, and amassed everything and anything I could... beads, buttons, buckles, you name it - to create one of a kind designs, only utilizing vintage materials.

It was a hit! I started Blast From The Past Designs, sold in her shop, took my act to the local French market, started doing shows - eventually supplied boutiques and continued to grow the best I could. But, as we all know, the economy started to digress - I tried utilizing reps, saw that my boutiques were struggling and decided that it was time to take a bit of a break.

But, I was sitting on all these wonderful materials, and my heart sank at the thought of selling any of them off. Eventually I decided that I could really take a good look at what I had and part with the things I absolutely knew I would never design with and had acquired early on in the name of only utilizing vintage.

I opened up LisaLoot with that in mind, and then I just couldn't help myself, I wanted it to be so much more! I'm a huge collector myself - of glass, pottery, artwork, jewelry - you name it. So I expanded my concept to include all things that any girl could love. Hats, purses, compacts, jewelry - the works!

As time has progressed, I've started introducing my original designs to my LisaLoot customers and I have received a warm response. I now offer original vintage items and my designs and it thrills me to know that I'm not giving up on my love for design and at the same time I get to build relationships, making new friends with my customers and colleagues alike, AND hunt for vintage treasure.

Payment
I accept credit cards directly through Etsy's Shop Payment Account as well as via Paypal. Please note that sale prices and/or coupons cannot be combined.

I am willing to work with you, as I know budgets can be tight, so if you see something you absolutely adore and need a little time, I will work with you on layaway. I ask for a 50% deposit and remainder to be paid in two weeks time. I do take special requests on a case by case basis.

As I am a registered business in Illinois, I do charge Illinois state sales tax.

Please get in touch with me if something happens and you need to cancel your order. I do understand that sometimes these things do happen.
Shipping
I ship First Class with tracking for all orders within the U.S. And First Class for International orders.

If you require a quicker method or insurance, please don't hesitate to get in touch and let me know what you need at the time of your purchase.

I do understand that in some countries a duty or value added tax is charged. Please understand that I cannot under declare or mark an item as a gift. As a seller, I want to be honest and provide the very best service that I possibly can. If I do not follow the customs declaration laws, I could be fined for such a practice.

As such, I mark all my packages "vintage accessories" in order to avoid any potential over inflated charge to you for your purchase.
Refunds and Exchanges
I want to start out by saying I'm a really good packer. I've had two occasions where an item was damaged in shipment - and each time I refunded the buyer. I try very hard to ensure that each item is packed individually and with extreme care. If it should break during shipment, I will issue you a refund.

I've gratefully never had a loss at this point, but if something should happen, I am happy to work with you to replace the item with something similar, or to refund your purchase.

I try to represent each of my offerings as honestly as possible. Due to the nature of selling vintage, some items may have slight imperfections which I try to communicate in the listing and photographs. If for any reason you should be unpleased with your purchase, or if there is an issue with fit, etc. please don't hesitate to get in touch with me. My feedback for service is very important to me and I pride myself in trying to give the very best in customer satisfaction. I will work with you to replace the item or refund your purchase as necessary.

Please don't ever hesitate to get in touch and ask questions about my offerings. I'm happy to help in any way I can.

I have a very large stock of bakelite and other plastics and am happy to take special requests.

For my vintage repurposed designs shown under "Vintage Redux," I am happy to work with you to create other one of a kind designs to suit your needs. My studio is full of antique & vintage components, and as a creative - I truly enjoy doing custom orders.
