Fairy door to a little precious-things shop in Suttons Bay, Michigan.

Garden-statue and other tchotchke store in Suttons Bay, guarded as it says by Winkle the dragon. There's another dragon on the other side of the sidewalk guarded. They're taken in after the shop closes for the day.

The small river feature --- with goldfish inside --- that marks the edge of the garden-statue shop.

Trivia: George Barr McCutcheon's novel Brewster's Millions (basis for the several movies) was originally published in 1902, under a pseudonym; it would sell at least five million copies in McCutcheon's lifetime.
