A Good Find

michiganknob2As I have mentioned before, I am not a shopper. Occasionally my wife coaxes me to enter a shop and once in a while I find something there that interests me.

Such was the case recently when we visited the Thistle Gallery on Main Street in downtown Douglas. First I was greeted by Mary Glinski, the very friendly owner of this four year old establishment.

For some time we have been looking for unique hardware for our kitchen cabinets and I think we may have discovered what we are looking for at the Thistle Gallery. These unique pulls use polished Michigan stones mounted for use as pulls for drawers and kitchen doors. Each stone is unique, natural and very interesting. The pulls are reasonably priced. I purchased one as a sample to see how it would look in our home. Sharp is the word. The natural look of the stone compliments our wood cabinets and would also look great with granite counter top.

My wife informed me there were many other things of interest that I did not notice. I guess I should listen to my wife more often.
