Those who know long time Birmingham retailer and resident Dulce Fuller, owner of Woodward & Maple, 266 E. Maple Road, are careful to note that she is not going out of business – she is retiring. “After 27 years, she’s just ready to retire – and she deserves it,” said co-worker Kyla Bingamen. Fuller first established the beautiful and eclectic boutique in 1991 featuring exquisite items from European and American collections. The intimate 1,000-square foot shop has offered everything from fine china, from Herend and Anna Weatherly to crystal, beautiful women’s handbags, leather gloves, jewelry, scarves, and clothing for women and children. “Dulce will still do some interior design work for family and friends,” Bingamen said. Bingamen noted that Fuller will also stay active traveling, with family in Europe, and lots of interests. “It’s been a pleasure working for her.”
