One of the best things about going to a Flea Market is finding different and unique items not sold in stores. At Flea Markets you can mostly find used household items and mass produced knickknacks, jewelry and clothing. However, there are occasions when you come across unique and original hand made items. “Design-A-Can” is a kisok owned and operated by Lolita, a friend from high school. In her kiosk she carries mass produced items, but she also sells hand sewn bottle and can covers. Last week she had completely sold out the can covers and was filling the display cases with these cute bottle covers. They are individually hand sewn dresses that are made to cover a normal size bottle of dish washing liquid. How cute are they, there wouldn’t be a need to hide your soap under the sink with it wearing one of these dresses.
The dress covers are individual and unique sewn in fabric that would appeal to anyone including people of different political parties. She also sells President Obama T-Shirts, sunglasses, caps and key chains; Breast Cancer Awareness items; children’s toys, and games; scarves and hair accessories, a little something for everyone. If sports is more of your interest she has pillows and blankets with NFL, NHL, and NBA logos. However, one of the cutest items I saw was the “Sunday Church Hat” hair clips which can also be worn as a scarf or lapel pin. She doesn’t make these herself but they would be perfect accessories to jazz up a suit, or hat when attending church or special family gathering.
If you are planning a special event like a birthday party, a Bridal Shower, a Super Bowl or Sports party, or even Fraternity/Sorority gathering, Lolita will accept special orders and create a unique item to make it an even more memorable. Design-A-Can kiosk is open on Tuesday, Friday and Saturday from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm, so if you are in Dover go to Spencer’s Bazaar and check her out or let me know and I’ll contact her for you.
