The catalog exceeds 86,000 items, but our favorite is a special piece from Rock & Roll Hall of Fame inductee Dolly Parton. Dolly, who is famously from the Smoky Mountains, has a global reach. However, no one loves her more than her fans back home. See Dolly’s dress on display at the location in Pigeon Forge and admire it as you celebrate in your own dress!
