Gecko Fashions dresses trendy ladies in high-quality garb and chic lingerie and sells locally made jewelry and artwork. The flirtatious Next Level one-shoulder bubble hem top ($24) flaunts any figure and pairs deftly with the handmade "OHM" necklace ($41). Those hoping to intimidate rivals at Tuesday-night bingo may opt to wrap up in a cotton tee such as the locally designed "If You Can't Win Fair, Play Naked" V-neck ($9.95). Socially minded shoppers will appreciate the opportunity to support local artists through purchases and the fact that Gecko donates five-percent of proceeds from all Save the Ta-Tas gear, such as tanks ($24) and buttons ($2), to breast-cancer research.

Though many things have changed on Main Street in Newark, Grassroots Handcrafts has remained an institution. The store, which sells a wide range of specialty gifts, such as bath and body products, candles, women’s apparel, kids’ novelty toys, and home decor, has been in business since 1975. It’s still operated by Marilyn Dickey, who gets help from her two daughters, Kristin and Joanna. Delaware Today gave a shout-out to the store, calling its wares “funky, fun, and unusual.”
