Old Fulton Town Square Retail Building Hosts New Business

The historic A.J. Mattox store building on the town square in Fulton has come alive again with the opening of Curly Willow, a retail establishment featuring unique gifts and home décor items. Curly Willow Designs features a unique retro Christmas display in the front window (photo above) reminiscent of the 1940’s and 1950’s. The old A.J. Mattox building was built during the 1920’s serving as a general merchandise store. The business was later owned by Cecil Whitesides and the business was known as Whitesides where the customer could buy everything from garden seeds and overalls to shoes and household items. Today the old store building has many unique features including the old oiled wooden floors, 1940’s style lighting the ambience of a retail establishment from Fulton’s past. The Itawamba Historical society applauds Curly Willow Designs, for moving the gift and home décor business to Fulton’s historic town square
