This is a one of a kind place. The owner is a hoot. Hopefully she will sing the song of her museum. What fun! Near everything.

My wife loves umbrellas and was so happy to discover this tiny museum. She donated several from her collection & the owner/director was very appreciative. Quite the presentation. Peaks Island is a great destination...you can't miss this little shop when you visit
