Lonely Planet review for Brass Knob
This unique two-floor shop sells ‘rescues’ from old buildings: fixtures, lamps, tiles, mantelpieces and mirrors. The store’s raison d’être though is the doorknob – brass, wooden, glass, elaborate, polished and antique. The Brass Knob is an absolute fantasyland for anybody renovating (or even just living in) an old house or apartment. Staff can help you find whatever you need, and the classical music overhead adds to the charm.
