Repurposed Upcycled Reconstructed Items of Vintage...What do you think?

Good Evening Everyone, and thank you for visiting with LilacsNDreams. Wishing you all a Happy Holiday Season!:)

I have something I would like to put out there, and maybe can get some feedback on it from everyone. I never really thought of this issue before, but I guess it is there, and many opinions are being generated about it too. 

With Vintage items there has been a growing issue of refurbishing, repurposing, upcycling, reconstructing of such pieces. Some of the pieces used are because there might be a flaw with it, only 1 pc left from a set, have an odd number of items of the same & have not been able to sell them, odds & ends collecting dust, some items headed to the garbage, and some items have no flaws but have had a long glorious life & the owner wishes to show the piece in an updated form to fit with times of today. Whatever the reason it may be, there are vintage pieces being used for crafting of repurposing, upcycling, and etc. 

Now, there are some who feel strong about the vintage pieces being used, and feel it not right to do such a thing. They feel vintage pieces should not be used for crafting with. I have seen a comment made about repurposing being the end of all antiques. 

Then, it was noted that there are ways to preserve things that have been damaged, or greatly loved over the years. Why not make them into something wonderful after they have seen their glory days. It was also felt that taking something old, and creating something new again creates potential for new collectors that might not have been reached before. "Antiques" reminds them of their grandmothers things, and that is not the "in style" for the younger generation.

Then again it is felt that the items are being destroyed, and changed and feels this would be the end to all antiques. 

You know, I LOVE antiques, I love things old, I love things with a past, I love learning about these things & hearing their stories. But, even tho I like some of these pieces dearly, I cannot have them for my home as they do not fit with the tastes of the rest of the family. If they were updated in small ways, then yes it would work for our home. 

Anyway, I did not fully realize how this has been an issue with feelings towards some of the repurposing upcycling vintage pieces. From the past couple of days I have seen a lot of people like treasures in this way, and I have also seen some loving vintage the way they do, and being upset over this craft that is growing. 

So, without any arguments, anyone getting to heated over this, what do you think? What is your opinion of all of this? Please, do share. But, remember, everyone has their own opinion, there is no right or wrong answer to this, and I ask that everyone respects everyone when replying to this issue. 

Hope to see some responses from this, and see what others have to say about it also. Please share, and be nice everyone, ok? Thanks for visiting LilacsNDreams, and stop again. Have a super weekend everyone, enjoy, be safe, and HAPPY HOLIDAYS From LilacsNDreams!:)

Happy Holidays and Shopping with ArtFire and Ecrater too!

Ok everyone, Christmas is getting closer. How we doing getting things done? Shopping, and mending to our own online stores too. A lot of work I know, and I am guilty of being slow about my online stores this year. Have been getting pictures done, research done, and then I get side tracked by other things, and lose track of time. 

This weekend I have had to deal with weather, being snowed in, etc. I did get some things washed, and ready to put together for my other store I have been working with too. That store is more for the crafty things, handmade, repurposed, upcycled, and . . . . You know:) I have been slow with that store too. It is new, but am getting the hang of how to list things there. Very easy as long as I have all the info in front of me I need to make my listings. No problem them. Maybe tonight I will force myself to stay up a little bit later to get a couple of listings done...would be nice for both stores:)

Hopefully this week, by this next weekend I have Christmas shopping done, Christmas cards all in the mail, and gifts wrapped and under the tree. Then...I can enjoy the week of Christmas with a bit slower pace, getting things ready for meals, and for family:) Sure would be nice, and hope I can do that this year like I want to. Wish me luck!

Thanks for stopping by here, and don't forget to visit my artfire store & also my ecrater store too. Been spreading some of the treasures between both of them. Have a super week everyone, and best of luck with all you do!:) HAPPY HOLIDAYS From LilacsNDreams!:)

Happy Holidays From LilacsNDreams Artfire, and Ecrater Stores

Hello, and Welcome to LilacsNDreams! WOW! Look at the date, take a breath, and like me....try to figure out how it has slipped by me so fast now. How is this happening? Same thing every year, right?:)

I hope everyone is able to get out, and about to get all their shopping needs done. Ever noticed how hard we try year after year, there is still always that last minute thing that happens with us, and the rush is on to finish it, complete it, get what is needed, etc. Just the habit of things, right?:)

I have slowly added a little more to my store at Artfire, and have also been working on inventory for my store at Ecrater. Not fully where I want it all yet as I do have the newer store I have opened, and been crafting for that too.

Stop by to visit the stores when you can, and thanks so much for visiting with me today. Take care, and have a super day everyone. Enjoy, and Be Safe!:)

Artfire Marketplace, and eCrater Marketplace For My Vintage Collectibles, Home Decor, Repurposed, Upcycled, Hand Made

Wow! Where is the time going? It is just slipping on by with sooo many things to do, so many things to finish, and you know.....

Babysit Grand Baby again last night. She was in Awww of the lights, and tree I had done so far. Today we spent time going up and down stairs to the basement, and to the spare room upstairs. She sooo enjoyed helping me completing trees, adding lights, and little decorations. Watching her face light up with the lights, and things was joy in my heart to see:)

I have started listing things with my other store at artfire. The 2nd store is more for the hand made, repurposed, upcycled, and reconstructed treasures by me. I am having fun with it, and have more projects completed to picture & list, or some that are almost finished, and some just starting on....I am having fun with it! Isn't that what it should be about, right? When you can, visit my second store called PassnItOn I am slowly adding the inventory as able to, and as I progress with things here. 

My other store to visit at Artfire for vintage collectibles being sold is LilacsNDreams People are not really aware of Artfire also having vintage, and antiques being sold there, but the sellers and amounts of items keeps growing there. Artfire is for Vintage, Supplies, Hand Made, Media, Fine Art, and Design. Visit with me, and many other wonderful sellers there when you can. There is much to see with more being added everyday. 

Also, I am working on adding some things back into my eCrater Store too. Things that are collectibles, and not quite old enough to be considered vintage for artfire terms will be listed with this store. 

When you can, visit with me at all the store noted for you. Wishing ya'll a great Sunday, and a beautiful week. Best of luck to all. See you when you visit again with me here, or any of my stores.

Hello to all visitors finding LilacsNDreams, those returning, and those passing by. Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. We did here, and of course the time always goes to fast too. Black Friday? Anyone go shopping for this? I didn't, and have never been to one yet. I spend my day cleaning up after everyone, getting things in order, and trying to get ready for new listings...which I am working on both stores right now:)

Each year the time becomes earlier, and earlier when they start Black Friday at some stores. I had heard of a store that started by midnight on Thurs....sorry, that was Thanksgiving for me, and it shouldn't be forgotten by rushing out to be at a special sale.

LilacsNDreams ArtFire Shop of Vintage, Collectibles, Gently Used

Hello everyone, and thank you for visiting with me at LilacsNDreams today!:) I won't make this real long as it is late, and I have spent the last few hours on computer trying to catch things up. Hubby is home for a few days, and hogging my computer which is not allowing me to be on the computer all the time, and late night seems to be only time to do it right now. UGH! In a few days the schedule will change again, and I can sit on my computer all day, or hop on & off as I was becoming accustomed to. 

Here is a saying I seen, made a note of, and would like to share with everyone here. I hope you enjoy it, and find meaning in it as I have. 

   " There is nothing impossible because the dreams of yesterday are the hopes of today, and can become a reality of tomorrow! "

Pretty neat when you think about it, don't you think? So, stick to it with all that you do, want to do, and accomplish. We want it, we can succeed!:)

Don't forget to visit my shop at ArtFire. I have listed a few more things, and hope to add a few more again tomorrow too. Well everyone, I am out of here for the night....which is now 2:30 a.m. for me. Take care, and hope everyone has a super weekend!:)

Happy Weekend From LilacsNDreams! * ! * ! *

WOW! Where is the time going? My gosh, this month is about 1/2 over with, and I think I seen a count down where Christmas is in 42? days? WOW! I am going to be rushing to get some things done myself. 

So, what is everyone doing for Black Friday? I have seen much advertisements, and announcements about getting items ready for that day, listed, noted, advertise here, and advertise there. Busy busy busy!:)

Everyone ready for Thanksgiving? I am not quite yet. Been getting a few things along the way, but still have a little bit more to do. To me the holidays have always been about Family & Friends, and spending time together. This year is different. I have family in the area, but for some reason I have a disfunctional family. This one is controling, do it her way, if so & so is there I will not be there, etc. The other one....well, let's just say some bridges were burnt pretty bad, and there is much hard feeling there as a result. I usually bite my tongue, go along with things, try to keep peace, and would like to see everyone together, but....this year is different. I would sooo like to be able to enjoy the holidays with no family squabbles, no fighting, arguing, etc. Anyone else like that?:)

Ok, anyway, stopping by to wish everyone a super duper happy productive weekend! Take care, and hope ya'll are able to enjoy it. Take care:)

2 Sales with ArtFire and Importing to Addoway

Hello again everyone, and glad to see all who have stopped by, found me by accident, passed through, etc. Always good to see someone here, and all are welcomed too:)

This week has been busy with trying to list things with my 1 ArtFire store, and importing things over to Addoway too. Some where in doing all of this I started to question is this the right thing I am doing, will it be any different, is there something I am missing-not seeing-not doing-more I need to do, and you know...thoughts like that. So, when I get like that sometimes, I look over to my board next to my desk. I like to study it as I will keep different inspiring things on there to help boost me when needed. Well, what I have copied above for you is one of them things I read. Once I read that, think about it, and it gives me a little push that I am off again!:) I remind myself that Rome was not built over night, and the same is for any on-line business/seller too. 

Good news this week at ArtFire! I have sold 2 items! Yes, great way to start the week, and 1-2 days later another notice of another sale! WooHoo! Great feeling of accomplishment. So, I started to list more here again. ArtFire is where I am selling my vintage items that I have. Not only do they offer handmade, crafts, many different artists & artisans, they also have vintage too. After visiting my store if you do not find quite what you are looking for, make sure to look with other stores there of vintage, and view some of the great treasures everywhere offered on ArtFire. Also, more good news from ArtFire this week is with an item I had listed. I did a google search for it 24 hrs later, and was amazed at what I saw! I was on page 1 with google, and about 1/2 way down the list was my ad!:) There are many many many who are offering the same thing as I am, and some maybe more reputable than I am too. But, there I was on page 1 ranking...WOW! I fell in love with ArtFire even more!:)

I have spent a lot of time with ArtFire lately because it is very easy to do things there, and a great group of people around there too. But, I have also started importing my items to Addoway from bonanza too. This is a fairly new place yet (2009) with a growing membership of members from everywhere, members with more than 1 marketplace they sell at, but I have also seen members that have quit at bonanza, or who have also ventured off to this place too. So, that is a working progress with that store there as well. They do have pretty good google placements with this place as well which was another advantage along with views:) Great support that is responsive, and is active with facebook & such too.

Something I adore with both of these marketplaces is they are allowing you to also show the other marketplaces you are with too. Yes, you are allowed to show links at both of them, and I think that is great that they openly acknowledge this issue of members selling at more than 1 spot. How comforting, and inviting is that?

So, when you get a chance in roaming the internet this weekend, stop by to visit my stores, visit with me, leave me a note, drop a line, etc. Love to see the company, and hear from everyone too!:)

I wish ya'll a very good weekend, and many happy sales to all the on-line sellers too!:) Happy Sales!:)

Vintage, Collectibles, Dinnerware, Glassware, HomeDecor with Addoway and ArtFire

Hello Everyone, and thanks for visiting LilacsNDreams blog. I have been trying to stay busy with adding some items to ArtFire, which I did get some things in there the past couple of nights. I have also gone to Addoway, and with their new Bonanza importer started to import my items from Bonanza. First time for me to use one of these, and hope it all goes well. I am sure there will be 2-3 items that will be duplicated, but will be an easy fix. Once items import there I will be busy revising, editing, and getting things in order at that store. 

Was taking a break, and thought of stopping by here to keep you a little updated on my marketplace situation, and where I will be selling for the holidays. 

Visit me when you get a chance, ok? Take care everyone, and have a super week!:)

ArtFire, eCrater, Addoway . . . . Vintage, Collectibles, Gently Used

Hello everyone, and thanks for visiting me!:) Ok, Halloween is comes Thanksgiving, and soon Christmas. Where is the time going?! 

I am happy to say I made my first sale with ArtFire, and am very happy about it. I have not done much to promote here as I did with Bonanza...and made a sale within about 3 weeks...nice way to end the month, right? And...great way to start the month too. I have been listing more of my vintage items at ArtFire
and have some things with ecrater  but they appear to be having a glitch that is taking like 3-5 days to fix. I don't have time to play, or with glitches, this is the holiday season, and I need my inventory to move so I can restock in the spring....or after 1st of year...friend & I "maybe" might be out treasure hunting & best of all....working on some crafting!:) So, I have also been starting to add some things to Addoway too. So, when ya'll have a chance, stop and visit with the stores I am focusing my listings with right now. 

Love to see visits from you, and with me luck everyone. Best of luck to all of you who visit, and with all you are doing. Take care till the next time everyone...Later....

List of Google Disallowed Words

Hello everyone, and I am going to do something just a bit different than the norm for me. Well, kind of. I try to share things I know, things I learn, and things that would be helpful to all of you who are sellers. Google, as we know, is one of our highest search engines used to find our products that we all list for sale. Now, the list I am about to share here is in no way perfect, and will not be 100% complete. Why? Because Google is forever changing, but this list is close to what I have seen, and gathered thus far. These are words to avoid putting with your ads, titles, listings, and so on.


WARNING: Attempts to cheat the Google system using misspellings, asterisks, or other tricks are considered abuse.

- free (including hyphenated words such as pet-free, smoke-free, hands-free, etc-free)
- sale
- vacation
- travel
- travels
- Sold (will make your listings go to the bottom of Google's List)

- smoke, smoked
- champagne
- whiskey
- beer
- cigar
- cigarette
- rum
- rummo
- wine
- vine (supposedly because vine = wine in another language)
- vineyard
- camel (as a cig brand, otherwise it's showing up)
- brandy
- gin
- bordeaux
- burgandy
- ale
- hemp (?)
- absinthe (type of alcohol)  

- anime (however "manga" is allowed)
- strip
- stripper
- adult; including hyphenated words such as adult-size
- butt
- sexy/sex
- affair
- ale
- chick
- sensual
- offensive language
- knife/knives
- nude

- postage (or postage stamp)
- collecting (collectible and collect are okay)
- thorny
- precious metal
- muse
- corsage
- gun
- Z (as stand alone letter)
- double @ (i.e.: L@@K, B@@BS)
- fireworks
- bank

PRICE RESTRICTION: Google Base will not take items under US $1

CAPITALIZATION KILLS!! Only first letter of words capitalized. 

No punctuations, or markings used such as  : - , ; " " ( ) * !  and etc.
*Google and Google Base are 2 different search engines. Rejected listings in Google Base (Google Product Search / Google Shopping) may still appear in Google. 

I hope this list will help those who question things with Google. No one can have the complete list of this as Google is forever changing. For some words not allowed I would suggest being creative & open a thesaurus! Wishing ya'll the best of luck, and I do hope this can help you in some ways. Take care, and have a great day everyone!:)

Bonanza, eCrater, ArtFire . . . Vintage, Collectibles, Dinnerware, Kitchenware, Glassware, Home Decor, Pottery

Hello blogging friends & followers! WOW! I really have been MIA here, haven't I? So sorry about that! I guess I spent more time with decisions on listings, where to put things, working on my new store with ArtFire, have been moving a few more things to eCrater, social networking with TSU Sellers Network & with the new platform, pictures, finishing projects with glue, lace, sequins. Hmmm....I am noticing myself how I have actually been a little busy...This is Great!:)

So, if any of you have booths with Bonanza, how do you feel about that tab that was added at the top for their specialty site/store they are doing? Bags Bonanza....suppose to benefit for all of us on Bonanza by bringing more traffic because once they visit there, they can go onto the rest of bonanza to look & shop. Hmm...sorry, not real sure about this one yet. First of all...I haven't sold purses/handbags for a while, although I wish I did, but I haven't. Secondly, the color of the tab for this new specialty site is done in a color that is more noticeable, and eye catching too. Also, when searching some products on the Bags site...if one of the sellers has a store for more does not show it like it does on the Bonanza booths. Hmm....Also, if this were to work out pretty good, maybe next yr more categories will be added...vintage, collectibles, antiques were not mentioned in the list. Sorry, but for the first time it felt like being left out of something, and not considered. So, with hurt feelings I did supress my google feeds at bonanza right now. Have been listing between eCrater & of course ArtFire too. 

Well, now that this past weekend...not all behind me, it is Monday, going thru notes I made to ME, and am working on getting things done again. "Blogging" was one of my first noted, so here I am:) Again, I apologize for such a long delay, and I hope everyone understands how these things do sometimes happen. Thinking of all of you, and wishing ya'll a great week! Many happy sales to all the sellers, and best of luck to all the buyers too:) Till the next time my friends.......

Holiday Shopping With Vintage, Collectibles, Gently Used Treasures

Hello again to all who stop to visit with me, are browsing my stores, and out surfing. So happy you stopped by to visit, and view!

I usually am not the pushy type of person. I am easy going, carefree, and love doing what I do. But, I do want to remind everyone . . . HOLIDAYS . . . are fast approaching for ALL of us! Coming fast for the sellers trying to get all their stores, booths, websites, and products ready, but it is also fastly approaching for the shoppers too.

Just heard some reports about September Retail numbers were very strong last month. This could mean a strong holiday season for us all. If any of the shoppers are like me . . . I have been watching my pennies, not buying anything, being a good girl all year . . . But, I am getting antsy, and ready to shop!

So, everyone make note, it is predicted this will be a good season. But, also remember other retailers are aware of this, and will be gearing up with coupons, sales, and doing what they can for their businesses also.

Hope ya'll have enjoyed this, and again, Thanks so much for visiting with LilacsNDreams today. Have a great Shopping Day Evening Everyone!

Hope you enjoyed your Online Treasure Hunting with Me!:)

Vintage, Collectibles, Dinnerware, Glassware, Kitchenware at ArtFire

Hello to everyone who visits with me today. Hope you are having a great weekend thus far. When you are able to, please visit my new store with ArtFire that I have recently activated, and become a Pro Member too. I hope to be adding more, and thought there would be more for you to view, but I keep getting delayed. Hopefully by Monday I have more items listed there.

As you will see I am showing items at this time for my passion of vintage, collectibles, dinnerware, kitchenware, glassware, home decor, pottery. If you do not see something for what I have mentioned, I only mention it now as I am bringing more items in to fit with those categories. Some of the items are coming from other marketplaces I am with, and once I get to a comfortable level of what I have brought in to start, I hope to add more that has not yet been viewed with my stores:)

I have not been active with ArtFire long, but what I have done so far I am still very much enjoying it. I am starting to see a few familiar faces now & then with some members from other marketplaces too. We all want the same succeed with what we are doing.

I hope to see that ArtFire soon can be adding a few more categories for the vintage area as that is a great interest of people still, and to help accomodate some of us that sell different forms of vintage.

Here is to wishing everyone a great weekend, and of course the best of luck to All!:) Thanks for visiting with me, and I do hope you can enjoy your Online Treasure Hunting with Me!:)

Treasure Seekers Unite also known as TSU Sellers Network

Hello everyone, and a very happy Sunday to you! It is beautiful out here today, sunny, and loving it! Hope ya'll are having a great day, and great weather where you are also. 

Well, let's see, the name change with Bonanzle to BONANZA  has been working well so far. There are some who are upset for reasons of how things were handled, how some things need to be redone but will cost again to do so, and some other issues. There are been much said about it, and some of it is scary reading for what is said, and then there is much positive for what is being said too. This is something everyone has to draw their own opinion with. I know my views were climbing, and now they have been dropping again. But, do to another site I am signed with, and working on, I might have found some of my issue with some words being used & not knowing at the time that they were disallowed words with google. 

By the way, great discussion about "Disallowed Goolge Words" is taking place with TSU Treasure Seekers Unite There has been a great discussion there with this topic, people sharing what they know, and some good advice too. Visit with this to see what is being said.

NEW Payment Venue! Check it Out!

Hello again everyone, and hope ya'll are having a great evening!:) I am stopping by again to show you something I seen a couple of days ago, but have been reminded again about it. 

Don't you wish you had more options for payments than just paypal? I do! The more options, the better for my customers too. I do have Revolutionary Money Exchange I am signed with, and I also offer Google Checkout. But, here is yet another great place to add to the list too. Still new, but is growing fast too. When you can, stop by to check them out, and get signed up. See Good Luck to all of you that stop there, and get signed up. The more choices we have for ourselves, and our customers the better it is, don't you think?

Don't forget about artfire, and stop by to see my store there. I have started listing some things, and will keep adding to it. I will soon let you know about my other store that I have signed up there, and just got the pro membership for that tonight too. Wish me luck! Ya'll have a safe & fabulous weekend!:) Till the next time my friends:)

GREAT Group Deal with ArtFire....Check it Out!


Hello everyone, and this is gonna be a quick one...I am trying to research a little, revise pictures, work on listings, work on things with TSU Sellers Network, and etc. But....I have had a shop here for a while with ArtFire, and because of this special I went to look closer at them. I have listed a few things there, and LOVE it! When I completed my listing, it came back to me asking me to fix some things....found some google words not approved, made me aware of it so I could change it, and how great is that? Excellent! So, this is another store I have added to my list for the holidays. Also, because I have some future plans...this store & another one there I am working on will be very handy....can't tell you quite yet:)

Anyway, stop by there and check it out. You get A LOT for that pro membership listing fees, no final value fees, and it is for life too! Some great features to have with the pro account, and for that price....much cheaper than paying a final value fee, paying a listing fee, relisting fee, and etc. Stop by to have a look if you are not already there....great great group of people, and excellent service from support too!:) See me at LilacsNDreams @ ArtFire Well, it is late, very late, and I need to close this. Wishing everyone a great evening, early morning, and best of luck to you. Have a super weekend, and chat with ya'll later!:)

Welcome to LilacsNDreams Blog...2 New Pages Added to Blog

Hello again everyone, and glad to be here again too:) I have added a couple of pages to my blog. If you will notice at the top there is a button/title that is for Bonanzle Treasures Offered & also a button/title that is for eCrater Treasures Offered. When you have a chance, please view both pages. I know I am changing a little bit of what I had first planned with my blog, but wanting to make things easier for all of you too:) I LOVE sharing things with everyone here, and I love to boast about my marketplaces, what I sell, and etc. But, so I do not fully dwell on it, and bore all of you with that, I am trying to arrange different pages to separate it for all to view where they would like to visit, and of course come back to the beginning here to catch up on things with me too:)

I will still keep my LilacsNDreams Store page as I am making some notes, and ideas for that. I already have the page started, and will still use it. Just a little differently now is all:)

Hope this finds everyone having a great day!:) Looks like storms here tonight:( Oh, well, gotta have a little rain now & then too...makes things smell good, freshens things, and so on. Thanks for visiting me today, and hope you enjoy my new pages I have added to this:) Take care everyone. Toodles........
