Nothing is safe from decoration, including car antenna’s. Obviously these devices are nothing new, but one inventor saw an opportunity to give them a makeover, reports Flea Market Zone.
One night three years ago, Dewayne Lytle was sitting in his car when lightning struck. â€œI was in a drive through, and I saw a decoration on the antenna of the car in front of me,â€ he recalls. â€œIt was beaten up and kind of ratty, and I just found it interesting that people put these on their antennas. I decided to come up with a line of cute designs that could reflect peopleâ€™s personalities and interests.â€
Inspired, Lytle worked to design a line of car ornaments he calls â€œTenna Tops.â€ And he broadened the appeal by including an elastic cord option that lets them hang from car mirrors. Now heâ€™s up to 50 designs, and more are on the way. â€œOur goal is to release 10 new designs every year at a minimum, so that we always have new products coming out,â€ he says.
The suggested retail price is $3 for each Tenna Top, on down to three for $10. Wholesale, the price is $1.50 to $1.70 each, based on quantity.
