Mann's Mercantile Shops

Posted by
Steven (Chicagoland, United States) on 24 September 2020 in Architecture and Portfolio.

A building on the same site as Mann's Mercantile Shops at 1176 Main Road on Washington Island. No exterior signage really identified the building other than that it housed souvenirs, an art gallery, and handmade gifts. We weren't sure about the presence of gnomes (one seen here), but we saw many souvenirs with the saying, "There's gnome place like Washington Island." Note the grass rooftop here.

Years ago some people liked to have gnomes in their gardens here, but they seem to have fallen completely out of favour now

@lisl: I still find plenty around here. We must be behind the times. ;-)

I like the grass growing on the roof and this pretty wood shop with its warm colours.

an excellent capture of this somewhat kitsch architecture, though the grass roof is a nice touch and could do with a goat on it:) Nice crisp strong colour

@grouser: Wait until you see a photo in the near future with goats on the roof of a restaurant. That's if I deem the photo worthy. Maybe it will be a Silly Tuesday post?

That looks very Scandinavian in the style of the building plus the sod roof. Actually even the gnomes I believe are Scandinavian. What a lovely spot that is and they seem to have a fun sense of humour!
