Welcome and thank you for your interest in Neisha's Dream Castles!
Dream Castles are banks made from primarily recycled, rescued, and re-purposed materials. They are hand sculpted and hand painted, so each castle is a true one-of-a-kind. I love what I do, both the artisitc outlet, and helping others discover their Dreams.
After some questions, I'd like to make sure everyone understands what I do :) (although this is the first time in nearly a decade that there's been a question) I make handcrafted castle banks. I do this in two main ways - pre-made pieces made in limited amounts at which I sell in person at the 3-4 Renaissance Faires I do each year. When the shows are over, I then list the remaining pieces on my website for sale/shipment. There usually aren't very many, as my primary outlet of sale is first hand, person to person, smile to smile. While I would love to quit my primary job and sculpt in my pajamas all day-every day, sadly I still have to go to work, so I'm limited to how many pieces I can make. And again, while I do like to have some extra pieces available on the website, selling them at shows is my first priority. My 2nd main outlet is custom orders. I Love doing custom work!! Custom work makes up over 1/2 of what I do. This is why I have pictures of all the PAST pieces I've made, so that you can build your own perfect Dream Castle by choosing the elements you love from the various pieces in the galleries. Being that we are at the very beginning of the season, my "stock pieces" are VERY LOW, because thanks to all of you, 2015 was a FABULOUS YEAR! I sold nearly every piece made! I'm very very busy right now rebuilding my stock for this season's shows and consignment at Maiden Bedlam in Elgin, IL. As I've always done, I will share once any available pieces are on the website and let everyone know of upcoming shows. I hope this clears up any confusion as to why after you've made your way here, it appears I have nothing to sell. You now know that's not the case! So please take a moment to look around and create your very own Dream Castle! I can be reached via Facebook Messaging, and via email: Neisha@neishasdreamcastles.com
Please take a look around and I hope to hear from

In October 2011, we started saving in our new Dream Castle Fortress. In September 2015 we celebrated 20 years of marriage by taking a Dream Adventure to England & Wales! We drove the region for 10 days and even stayed in a castle for 3 nights on our actual anniversary. I promise - it really does work!! Our next Adventure...Germany!
