Shop specializes in the one-of-a-kind

The Pilot/Marge Woodfin
Dottie Nord, proprietor of Dottie’s Corner, said, “I have a treasure trove filled to the brim with my favorite things, heavenly gifts for earthly people.” 

That treasure trove in Dottie’s Corner is part of the little mini mall at 1105 Chetco Ave., and it truly is in a corner.

“I am blessed to have a little place and to be part of this community,” Nord said about her little shop that opened in May.

“It’s blooming with neighbors,” she said about the cozy complex that includes Seaside Peddler, Natosha’s Trading Co., Snowdog, and Glassic, plus the Seaside Bakery.

“It’s a dream come true,” Nord said. “My husband, Randall, loves to fish, and this is what I was meant to do.”

Fishing and friends is what brought them to Brookings in the first place, about 15 years ago. In 1996 they bought property in the area and in 2004 they purchased their current home.

Nord first had a booth at the antique mall in Harbor. “I had some wrought iron and other things on consignment, and then I joined Feather Your Nest,” she said. “ Susie (owner of Seaside Peddler) suggested I come here, and this is the perfect place.”

“People come in to the other shops, or to the bakery or Seaside Peddler, and when they find my corner it’s a pleasant surprise for most women and men. I have gifts for hopeless romantics, collectible dishes, small architectural pieces from the 1920s and ’30s. My space is limited to all one-of-a-kind pieces, plus I have scented drawer liners.”

She added, “I also do free gift wrapping and it’s a great place for secret sister shopping.”

Dottie’s Corner is open Tuesday through Saturday, 11 a.m. to 5ish. Nord specified “fiveish” because she would never close up if a customer wanted to continue to browse and shop.

“I have a little spot here for customers to sit and enjoy bakery goodies,” she added. “And I have lots of gifts in my little personalized store for people to enjoy roaming.”

For additional information about the special gifts at Dottie’s Corner, contact Nord at 541-661-1853, or pop into the corner any day except Sunday and Monday and be prepared to find treasures galore.

The shops in the mini mall all participate in Second Saturday Art Walk, with special sale items.

  • Unknown election outcome is stocks' big fear
    Senate races next week could hold the key to whether the stock market glides through the year-end in a typical post-midterm election rally or gets hit with a fresh bout of volatility.
