If you happen to be on the Square in beautiful downtown, Liberty, KY, this holiday week (and it is worth a visit) you might check out Sweet Beans n' Things Coffee, 543 Middleburg Street, which has ice cream items, in addition to its great coffees.
Within less than a block, there's Liberty Lights, 36 Hustonville Street, a first run movie theatre, set amid the many local downtown stores and restaurants.
But you have to make sure and stop by the Snap Dolls manufacturing facility at 654 Campbellsville Street (KY 70), Liberty, KY.
Stacey Hoskins Beeler started the company in 2010 out of her home in Casey County. Stacey had fond memories of playing with paper dolls as a child and wanted to create cloth paper dolls that would be more durable and fun to play with. She and her husband launched Snap Dolls in 2010 and later filed for a patent on the snap together cloth toys.
Snap Dolls features a number of diverse female characters with interchangeable outfits that can be snapped on and off to change the look of the doll. Other outfits can be purchased separately to add to the wardrobe of the doll.
As the business grew and the Beeler's needed employees they reached out to some of those who had lost their jobs after Oshkosh B'Gosh closed their Liberty plant several years prior.
Snap dolls now employees 6 full time people and as many as 20 part time employees. They are also helped by many friends, family members, church goers and supportive community members who help fill orders.
You can find Snap Dolls in every Cracker Barrell across the country as well as a number of specialty boutique shops.
Their website is: SnapDolls.com.
