Let’s take a vacation with Dorothy Lollipop from DorothyLollipopKnits
1. What is your favorite vacation destination and why? Where exactly in the world is it located?
My best & most recent holiday destination was Corfu. We visited in May, at the very beginning of the holiday season. We had a beautifully quiet and gorgeously sunny holiday. Lots of lazing around the pool, peaceful walks along the beach and plenty of time for knitting!
2. What are several places everyone visiting this destination should see?
Amazing scenery, great beach-side restaurants & Corfu Town, itself for the markets and night-life.
3. What special customs, traditions, geography, nature etc. are intriguing about this destination?
The coastline is lovely and the mountains are very dramatic too.
4. Where are the hot spots to eat and drink?
Best fish restaurants are right on the edge of the beach.
5. Have you been to your favorite vacation destination more than once and will you visit again?
We have been to Corfu twice and will definitely go again!
6. What are your social media sites?

Hello I am Dorothy Lollipop…. my name is my brand! I market my knitted toys as ‘Unique’ because I design and write all the patterns myself. Having built up a range of unique hand-knitted toys over many years I began selling on Etsy in 2013 Some of my toys have been used to support charities in the UK and Australia. They have been used as props for professional photographers and for stage productions. I also do a variety of commission work and have designed two knitted characters for a Children’s book. Each of my toys can be custom made using any choice of colours and details. All my knitted toys have been professionally tested and CE labelled “safe and suitable for babies and children of all ages”. It’s so nice to have been accepted into the CIJ Team My favourite Christmas item is the knitted reindeer…. I love making them as each one has it’s own unique character and cheeky smile!
Hello everyone, My name is Jurgita and i am from Lithuania. I am making stone beaded jewelry and hair accessories. I love travelling, it inspires my creations. My brand name – “Ta-Daa Accessories”.

Hi my name is Mikshita and I’m from Surrey, U.K. I am owner and maker of Small special moments. We make unique message in a bottle and this is our first ever year doing Christmas in July. Thank you for letting us be a part of it. We started last year October(fairs only) and have now decided to concentrate on our Etsy shop this year.
There are plenty of message in a bottle on Etsy so what makes us so unique? We are the very few who hand foil each personalised message with customers chosen colour, have the message hanging perfectly with or without a charm. We offer our customers the chance to build their own bottle and offer option to have it freestanding, hanging or as a magnet. Last year’s best sellers over Christmas were these little beauties.
