The Dorothy Days features... Fancy Dodo

Hi everyone :),

Today is Friday so that means.......FEATURE FRIDAY :) ....Horray!!

This week I am really excited to be featuring Lora from


Lora is originally from Bostom but has spent her first year away from home this year living in L.A. Her Etsy shop is called Fancy Dodo and she started selling under that name from last year. The common thread with her items is that she takes thing that would otherwise be extinct and repurposes them to be fancy again. Hence the name, Fancy Dodo. Creativity must run in the blood as Lora is mostly inspired by her Nana who gracefully multitasked on many creative projects - making jam, painting, sewing costumes and holiday dresses for her grandchildren, and putting on family dinners for 30.

Lora sells a range of items but her friends fell in love with her earrings so they have become her primary product. She started collaging comic and magazine images onto bottle caps in college because they were the two things which she had in abundance!

I love seeing items repurposed so Lora's bottle cap earrings really caught my eye when I visited her shop. Here are some of my favourites









Lora is doing her first craft fair at the end of the month which she has been busy making items for :). I think Lora will do really well as she has such lovely and quirky items :). She says that after she finishes the craft fair her shop will be restocked so keep checking back to see lots of new items!

Please be sure to take a look at Lora's shop.

Hope you all enjoyed this week's feature

Have a wonderful weekend
