Artfire Addoway Vintage Collectibles Glassware Repurposed Upcycled Home Decor

Hello, and Welcome to LilacsNDreams Blog. Glad to have you hear. 

How many of you have been selling with Bonanza, are signed up to Bonanza, or maybe are buyers who have dealt with Bonanza? Has really been some interesting reading this past week from many many members with Bonanza. Quite a few of them upset over how things have been done, how things look, why support is not responding to them, some of the paid memberships are very upset with some new changes rolled out to the site, and there are many complaining of not having sales. 

I read last night on Facebook that reports were showing that Bonanza numbers have been dropping from memberships, amount of items being listed, visits to site, and so on. This was a really promising site, and things really did look good with them once. Yes, I was too signed up with them, and made very few sales. I have since moved my vintage, collectibles, glassware, and etc to a store at Artfire where I have also included treasures repurposed, upcycled, and recycled by me. My views have been so much better here, my placements with google search have showed much improvement, and I have learned much from here too. 

Sorry, off topic just a little bit there. What I wanted to mention to many of you is that many of the members from Bonanza have suspended their feeds to google for bonanza, some have closed their booths at Bonanza, and like many others things have been put into another store while running both their Bonanza Booth, and their Addoway stores. Yes, is still a new young site yet with great support from the co-founder, and the support team there. Questions are being answered, any glitches are being tended to right away, suggestions are being considered for some things members would like to see or see more of, and so on. Also, many members have been complimenting on the sales that they have made, are starting to make, etc. Not much effort has had to be put into listings with Addoway as you had to do with Bonanza, and many are praising their placements in searches too. sends your listings to google, the find, bing, yahoo, and other places they feel are beneficial to the sellers. Sounds good, doesn't it?

I do have a store with Addoway, and have not really done too much with it...darn me. But, after transferring things into 1 store at Artfire, I am hoping to work with adding my non-vintage collectibles to my Addoway store. 

Visit my LilacsNDreams Artfire Store, and also visit my LilacsNDreams-Store Blog which shows pictures for some of my listings of items for sale with links to the page of where they are selling.

Thanks for visiting with LilacsNDreams Blog today, and hope to see you again. Love the company, visits, notes and comments I receive, and don't forget you may also comment here with my blog too. Have a super weekend everyone!


  1. I love your blog here. It is beautiful and very well written.

    I have had similar experiences in that I was on Bonanza for two years, then moved on to Addoway and ArtFire. I am very pleased with both sites. They both provide efficient customer support, good visibility, reasonable membership fees, and last but certainly not least, I am actually selling with much less stress.

  2. LOL:) Thank you so kindly for your encouraging words. Sorry to respond so late...I have been busy with store transfer of products, working with stores inventory, and it has just been that time of the month to spend more time with getting things in order than socializing:)

    There have been MANY who have been transferring from bonanza to Addoway this past couple of weeks, and it has been visible with facebook...a group they have there for addoway sellers, buyers, members.

    Thanks again for the visit, and kind words. I wish you well, and best of luck with your sales!:) Take care.
