Mary Ruth Dixon had a dream of expanding her rubber stamping obsession in to an actual business. The sense of community and creativity she experienced in other stamp shops was something she felt would work in the town of Boiling Springs, NC. So in 2005, Mary Ruth and husband Keith opened Dorothy’s Stamps-n-Scraps, named in memory of Mary Ruth’s mother.
Housed in what has always been a residence, the objective was not just to be a retail store, but also a gathering place. Mary Ruth hoped that all who entered her shop would sense a comfort and freedom, and maybe even a sense of home. She wanted to carry the best products, host the best guest teachers, and serve her customers in the best way possible.
