A few months ago I stopped by what must be the greatest treasure trove of eclectic design on the island. Part art gallery, part antique store, Hole in the Wall Antiques and The Woodworker's Bench is run by Frederick C Phillips, a cabinet-maker and furniture restorer. At Hole, you will find old shop signs and advertisements sharing space with sculptures made from driftwood and cedar, bizarre stuffed animals cohabitating with stirling silverware. Original art work, some from the owner's daughter-in-law including one piece which features a real tree frog encased in resin, adorn the walls and are available for purchase. The shop is a whimsical, folksy place and there are some beautiful and unusual pieces.  

Hole in the Wall Antiques and The Woodworker's Bench opens, Thursdays, Saturdays or by appointment only.  Have a look around after the jump.
