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

You're on the island so why not stop? Down the block from Brads Bike Shop, which I recommend to help you see the island, this little shack displays an unusual collection of norhing more than assorted umbrella covers- not umbrellas- just the covers. Quirky? Weird?...More
