     Visit the only museum of it's kind in the world, with over 14,000 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!

SNEAK PREVIEW / RUNDOWN OF WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT
(BY WINDOW EXHIBIT #!!!)

bulletWINDOW #1: Begins with Stones and Sterling silver.  On the windowsill the shakers are made form marble and onyx.  Up on the shelves the Horseshoe and the Lamas (from Peru) are made from Sterling Silver. The man and woman are made from a nut found in South America!
bulletWINDOW #2: Features the Transportation and Carriers.  They vary from Burros to Bulls and even a Pig carrying corn!
bulletWINDOW #3: Welcome to the world of cooking,  Our Chefs come from around the world. The wooden chefs with the red hats are French and a few are Italian!
bulletWINDOWS #4-#5: When you have cooks there is always food.  The menu is extensive in salt & pepper shakers.  Are you in the mood for fried eggs, sausage, hot dogs, hamburgers, toast or desert....you'll see the ALL!
bulletWINDOW #6: Every meal should be balanced out with a helping of vegetables.  Here you will see a style called Anthropomorphic, which means that a thing (fruit, vegetable, appliance) is made into a person usually with a face or even arms and legs!
bulletCORNER: Let's go for a picnic!  The hanging shakers with the handles are ideal for Bar-B-Que's, and don't forget the picnic tables!
bulletWINDOW #7: Picnic tables, rolling pins, and flower bouquets as well as Roses should belong in a picnic!
bulletWINDOW #8: Fruits are always good for you.  On the top shelf you will notice fruits hanging, they vary from colored glass to colored plastic.  The orange tree with the girl  next to it has the baskets as the salt & pepper shaker.  There is a strange bird amongst the fruits; his body and head are shakers.  The metal of the neck and beak is where the condiment comes out!
bulletWINDOWS #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.    

Here Comes The SECOND HALF Of The Museum
(The Bottom Shelf In The 2nd Half Are Miniature Mills)

bulletWINDOWS #11 & 12: The Mills are decorated with Gold Leaf are from Italy. Chickens, chicks and roosters...what more can be said??!!  Here you will see a pair of chicks in a log, on the windowsill, which are called Knodders. Knodders, are highly collectable and are: any salt and pepper shakers which are balanced and will swing back and forth.
bulletWINDOW #13; Cows, cows everywhere.  Amongst the cow shakers is a collection on milk pitchers in the shape of cows, donated by Michael Kensinger!

bulletWINDOW #16: Raining cats and dogs.  The plastic cats on top of the green box are 'squeaker' cats.  Tip the shaker upside down and they MEOW!
bulletWINDOWS #17 & #18: More animals...Frogs and princesses looking for Mr. Right.  Mice feasting on cheese, lady bugs on flower stools and horses.  On the top are a few pigs with magnets, kissing each other.  The vagabond mice with fur are an example of highly collectible shakers, with fur or fabric accents!
bulletWINDOW #18: Old and rare Italian mills with gold leaf and paint!
bulletWINDOW #19: Being located across from the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, it's only fitting to have squirrels and bears, even deer's, but we're not sure they are in the park.  On the windowsill is an example of shakers made our of walnut shells!

bulletWINDOW #25: Light bulbs and more glass!
