Hippie Alert! Fads come and go - and sometimes they come back again. Take tie dye, for instance. It's back. Even tie-dyed peace signs are back.

Heather Hickey couldn't be happier. She and her husband Tom opened Live Free and Tie Dye last spring in a building across from their go-kart track at Weirs Beach.

They offer tie-dyed T-shirts, sweatshirts, tank tops, beach towels, hats (like the one pictured here), girls dresses, tote bags and infant onesies in a variety of designs. If you don't see a design you like, you can make your own.

"It started when our staff at the go-kart track asked for tie-dyed uniforms," Hickey says. "Our customers liked them so we made some extra to sell."

She figures a lot of it is nostalgia for late '60s and early '70s when tie-dye-clad hippies roamed the landscape.

"When people see it, they get a remember-when look on their faces," she says. "And I think the bright colors make people smile."
