Someone recently said that life is a series of U-Turns!  Having "done" Fredericksburg a few years ago, I almost drove through it without stopping today.  Then I saw it.  DOOLEY'S!  The magical pull of DOOLEY'S hooked me into one of those U-Turns!  Fredericksburg does not need Dollar Stores or a WalMart.  It has DOOLEY'S!

Girls just wanna have fun.  And these girls shared my love of silly hats.  Yes, we had fun! Complete strangers; instant bond!

Alma Mae (yes, that's really her name) stocks, restocks, works the cash register and always wears a smile.

And the truly remarkable thing about Dooley's?  Its employees.  This trio's combined years of employment at Dooleys is over 100 years.  So, OK, that says something about Dooley's management as well.  Awesome!

Hair nets, silk flowers, gingham nightgowns, yarn, John Deer scooters and wagons, ribbons, bows, buttons, stoneware, cast iron cookware, spinning eyeballs that light up, hats for "regular" people, Aquanet, oil cloth by the yard.  If Dooley's doesn't have it, you don't neeed it!
