The Story of Dots

A unique shopping experience, right in the heart of Historic Downtown Arab.

.


Dot
A big question is "Who is Dot?"

The store is named after my mother, one of the most beautiful and creative people that ever lived. She was a girl scout leader, president of the school PTAs, room mother for all of our classes, ran the spring festival, often won "yard of the month" for our neighborhood, sewed for the public, hosted dinner parties, and still found time to spend with her children, encouraging us to use our imaginations, figure out how, and be creative. She taught us to think outside of the box, demand more for ourselves and be the best we could be. Naming a creativity "Arts & Gifts" shop after her just seemed overly appropriate.
Kids
When you live with an overly creative mom, you are challenged to become creative. All of my mom's children are creative in a variety of ways. We're all curious and constantly trying new things, so it's ever changing. Many of the items you see at Dots are created by my siblings. Art, woodworking, sketching, sewing, candle making, lampworking glass beads, jewelry, needlepoint, sewing, clay creations, crochet, knitting, jewelry making, altered & mixed media art, journaling, photography, and on and on and on....If we've not tried it, we soon will! To keep our homes from filling up with created items, the shop was started.

I often get called "Dot" because that is the store name. I typically won't correct you because inside, I'm smiling!
