She’s an icon, whether it’s for her singing, her movies, or her… curves. And now country music queen Dolly Parton has opened her first-ever retail store in Nashville, Dolly Parton’s Trinkets & Treasures, and plans to be on hand and in person for the official grand opening and pink ribbon cutting on Friday, March 12.
“When I was growing up in the backwoods of the Smoky Mountains, any trinket was a treasure to me,” says the vivacious singer, songwriter, author and entrepreneur. “The mail order catalog was my wish book. I wished I could have everything I saw. Those childhood memories inspired my new Trinkets and Treasures store. Come on in and wish and dream…and I will make them come true.”
Dolly Parton’s Trinkets and Treasures is located in historic downtown Nashville on 2nd avenue. The 1,000 square foot space is a colorful reflection of the singer’s eccentric “Coat of Many Colors” taste and is filled with the singer’s music and videos. The store offers a mix of Dolly-centric items for fans of all ages including a music section stocked with Dolly Records’ releases–including the November 2009 two-disc DVD/CD set “Dolly: Live from London” –and a listening post to preview the tunes, t-shirts, hats and a collection of children and tween items.
For the store, Dolly has also created fun items like a “Burpin’ 9-5” baby bib and special limited-edition “Coat of Many Colors” customized guitars, hand-painted and embossed with rhinestones at her Nashville studio.
Dolly Parton’s Trinkets & Treasures is located at 126 2nd Ave North, Nashville, TN (next door to Wild Horse Saloon) and store hours are 10 a.m. – 8 p.m. Sunday through Friday, and Saturday from 10 a.m. – 10 p.m. This marks the first retail store for the internationally renowned superstar who launched her own Dolly Records in 2007 with her Backwoods Barbie CD.
