I think this is such an amazing piece and love the fact that each bowling bowl shaker has this little knob to make shaking more easy and convenient.

“Frontier City” – Onstead Michigan.

    I love this S&P for many reasons. First is that it’s made from wood and not plastic. Second, the ‚Äúbowling pin‚Äù only remotely resembles a bowling pin. How on earth was the decision made to not go the whole way and get the right curves when a properly proportion bowling pin would have still served the purpose as a handle to pick the whole thing up? Third, I love the little handles on the bowling pins. They spared no expense here as they easily could have just had balls sitting in a little concave burrow in the base. Fourth, I love the photorealistic trees almost looking like the base is made of marble. And fifth, one of my all-time favorite things about travel souvenirs, that unless Onsted, Mich. is filled with bowling alleys what does the sport have to do with the place? Excellence all the way around.

    I love the wood shakers but found that moisture, wood and spices didn’t go well together.

    Yeah, not sure what they we were thinking when the skimped in making the bowling pin. It would have been great if they drilled a hole in it for toothpicks!.
