Dolly Dimples Waitress Statue

Lovely Dolly Dimples stands guard at a roadside candy/gift/weird stuff store. Worth a stop if you enjoy bizarre retro-retail.

Dolly Dimples

Dolly Dimples has been at her home for so long that it seems her feet are sunk into the pavement or they have just paved over them because they were unable to move her. The store is quite the treasure -- several great items in and around the store to see.

Bulbous-headed Waitress Statue

I saw an article on you guys in the Kansas City Star and thought of a giant I've passed countless times in Silver Creek, New York. It's not the giant Indian, but a waitress. She stands in front of Valvo's Candies (great homemade candy!).

Dolly Dimples (The Bulbous-headed Waitress)

We saw the bulbous headed waitress on and decided to have a look at it, as it was on our road trip route. She is outside Valvo's candy store. We asked the cashier in the store about her and she said her name was Dolly Dimples and that she had been there for as long as she could remember.

I don't know if this qualifies as a true roadside attraction, but she sure is ugly! I think she's about 12 feet tall. This giant waitress is located on Route 5 in western NY state, between Dunkirk and Buffalo; I believe it's in Silver Creek. She is in front of a candy store.
