     Visit the only museum of it's kind in the world, with over 20,000 shakers and growing!  The collection began about 20 years ago when we did not have a pepper mill, at home, that worked.  So off we went on a quest to find the right one.  At first we found one or two, then three or four, until it became an entertainment.  Soon we found the 'world of shakers', where the shapes, themes and colors and endless, as you will see!  One of the main purposes of the museum is to show the variety and the creativity that can be found in the salt and pepper shakers.  As you explore the collection you will enjoy the largest collection of mills in the world, they vary from country to country, as well as shapes and the materials they are made from.  After enjoying the museum, look around the front for lots of neat hand made jewelry, shakers, spices, bears and MORE!

WINDOWS #9 & #10: The mills after the fruits are from Denmark.  And now it's party time.  Bring out the beverages.  In Europe wine and beer are used by Monks, here there are beer and wine salt and pepper shakers as well as the Monks.  Before you leave this section, there is a mill after the beverage in the middle, with a little bit of Gold decoration, which is covered in leather.  Also a few of these mills are battery operated.
