Vendor of the Week: Whatever Wacky U Wear

There is nothing trashy about Annette Bates. That being said, let me introduce you to her line of goods made from recycled materials, Whatever Wacky U Wear. Bright, colorful and fun items designed to appeal to all ages, and they are a clever re-use of items that are most often destined to the trash bin: bottle caps, guitar picks, old records, wine corks. 
Coasters are popular items at Whatever Wacky U Wear
Exactly what is Whatever Wacky U Wear, you ask? "Whatever Wacky U Wear is fun, a collection of handcrafted one-of-a-kind jewelry and unique gifts made from 'whatever,' especially recyclables," declares Annette Bates, the owner and creator of WWUW, "I make earrings from everything: bottle caps (over 950 kinds of beer, soda & champagne caps) guitar picks, candy, spoons, forks, zippers, barbie dolls, domino and scrabble game pieces, popcorn, pencils, raffle tickets, poker chips..."

She also makes salt & pepper shakers re-using bottles, the most popular being Coronita and Coca-Cola shakers. Cork boards in a variety of sizes are made with old corks and present a colorful and clever display of discarded wine, champagne and tequila corks. Coasters made with bottles caps are a favorite, and her ear-rings made from guitar picks are always a crowd pleaser. 

One man's trash is another woman's treasure at Whatever Wacky U Wear
The latest craze, according to the creative Ms. Bates, is a unique belt created from bottle caps. Unlike any bottle-cap belt you may have seen before, these belts are custom-crafted, with each belt piece being cut one-by-one and glued back together, making a fun reversible and one-of-a-kind piece.  

Custom orders are available upon request. Just place your order and give it a few weeks, and voila! The perfect gift.
