Dilly Dally Emporium
Look at Karyn's marvelous Autumn "Christmas" tree., shown below What a clever idea! Wouldn't it be amazing to start a tradition of decorating one after the back to school rush and then change it over the day after Thanksgiving to a Christmas theme, as you eat turkey sandwiches with cranberry sauce and stuffing on the side?
Do you remember the advertising jingle, "You can trust your car, to the man who wears the star?" Texaco advertised this way for years and the employees had the Texaco Star on their uniforms. I think the Dilly Dally's building used to be a service station, take a look at this vintage logo built into the building. Those were the days when business owners expected to be in the same location for a while.
You can find Dilly Dally at 200 Main Street in Mathews, VA, if you happen to be out that way. The phone number is 804-725-0955.. As Karyn's quicky business card says, it is "4,000 square feet of the tastefully unusual"...my kind of place.
