I Thrift, I Junk, I Repurpose, and I Love Vintage too! I enjoy the simplicities of life.

I enjoy searching thrift stores, yard sales, estate sales, and anywhere I can find a treasure to save or maybe restore. Now, if I shared all of those hunting details with you it might scare you. Thinking about it, and relating to it hopefully makes you smile, and giggle a little bit too.

Sometimes pieces will need a simple cleaning, maybe a touch of paint, but mostly vintage pieces can be offered to you as I found them. I enjoy DIY projects which breathe new life into an item by repurposing, restyling, upcycling, reusing, or maybe marrying a piece to another one which saves the life of a piece. It gives it a unique touch to adorn anyone's home for display, or use. Giving a reborn treasure a new life is exciting. Everything deserves a second chance, don't you think? I enjoy doing this with treasures offered by Me. Puts a smile on my face, and hopefully yours too.

LilacsNDreams welcomes you to come in, and take a look around. If you have questions please make sure to contact Me. I would be happy to assist you. My business is based on honesty, fun, and You finding something to take home. Thanks so much for sharing your time with LilacsNDreams, and hope to see you again soon.

I Thrift, I Junk, I Repurpose, and I love Vintage too! Just a simple Gal living the dream.

Hello and Welcome to my world of treasures! I have a love for vintage collectibles, repurpose, DIY, restyle, junk, handmade, and hand crafted items too! I offer vintage as found. I will also offer some items that are repurposed, restyled, and upcycled inspirations too. I don't hoard - I Save - because "I just might be able to make something with that" I am a simple person who enjoys the simplicities of life.

I enjoy my time with thrifting, yard sales, estate sales, curb shopping, some places I better not mention (LOL) and mostly I enjoy the thrill of the hunt. I really hate seeing things thrown away, or sitting around collecting dust. I love possibilities for many things I see, and find. I just don't have the room for all of it!

Remember when you would get that special "Welcome" when you walked into that corner shoppe on main street? It was comforting to receive, don't you think? I feel it should be that way with online shopping too. You don't have to get all "dolled" up to shop in my stores. I would rather you come ready to shop just like you are in the comfort of your home. Hair rollers, shorts, jammies, barefoot, and well....you know what I mean!

I do not claim to be an expert. I offer to you what I find from research, sometimes from collectors books, things I've learned or have been shared by others, and etc . I enjoy doing online sales from the treasures I find. I wish I had the room to house all the beautiful things found, but I don't. I enjoy meeting new people, the experiences I've had, and being able to offer treasures to others that will also enjoy them. I have been doing online sales since 2004 with much enjoyment.

My LilacsNDreams business is based on honesty, a little fun, and of course you finding something to take home with you.

Thank you so much for sharing your time with LilacsNDreams! I value your business, and your feedback. I ask you to Please remember to contact me with any questions that you may have. I would be happy to assist you.

Have a Fabulous Day! I look forward to seeing you visit LilacsNDreams again.

***Vintage Collectibles, Previously Owned Items, Handmade, Repurposed, Upcycled

My items are vintage collectible pieces meaning 20+ years old, and have been previously owned.

Some pieces found have not been used, are new, and will be noted in descriptions.

Majority of the items have been used, and may have minor marks because of this. It does not distract from its beauty, charm, and use. Bubbles are not uncommon in glass, and vintage milk glass can have swirl marks, and seems from glass molds. They are not considered defects, and add to the charm and character of each piece.

I enjoy, and believe in preserving pieces by uniting them. Repurpose Recycle Upcycle Reclaim pre-loved treasures. Each piece is chosen with consideration of materials, patterns, and color coordination making each piece uniquely its own.

***Props may be used with pictures. Unless otherwise stated the item listed is what you are buying. Props are not included with sales. They are only used to share ideas of usage, displaying, and maybe intriguing ideas by you for its use.

***Clean/Care:
Gently hand wash as needed, do not soak. Items not suitable for dishwasher. Some will only need a soft clean. Same gentle care with your vintage collectibles too.

Have a most wonderful day. Come back, and visit again soon.
