Stroll and Shop Historic Downtown McKinney: Doozie’s Corner

A quaint spot with a collection of boutique-style merchants housed under one roof, Doozie’s Corner recently relocated to 208 E. Louisiana St. Your eyes are drawn first to the original hardwood floors and eventually wander up to the high antique ceiling. You notice a white picket fence that wraps around the entire second floor of the store, which is decorated with so much unique merchandise it’s tough to decide where to start your shopping.

Doozie’s Corner is well known for its CeCe Caldwell’s Natural Chalk + Clay Paints. Many of their national retailers travel to this location for workshops and training sessions.

New to Doozie’s Corner is an event room that is available to reserve for a fee. It offers a lovely setting for baby showers, wedding showers, birthday parties or any other special event. Store owners also are working toward adding a “man cave” that will be filled with beverages, Tvs and gift items, a place to escape and have fun.
