PASS THE SALT & PEPPER, PLEASE
Do you like to collect things? How about salt and pepper shakers? I have quite a few sets that I've collected over the years. I find them at yard sales, flea markets, and thrift stores. Some were given to me as a gift, as friends and family members are always on the lookout for them.
Most of mine fall into the catagory of collectibles, antique, vintage, and novelty. Salt and pepper shakers come in all manner of materials. I have wooden, metal, plastic, and glass ones.
The novelty S & Ps are the cute ones, even though they can certainly be used at the table as their intended purpose. There are so many catagories to choose from to collect, as it suits your interests. You can pick one theme, or just randomly create your collection.
Some themes include animals of all types, holidays, kitchen wares, letters, clowns, souvenirs, lettters, advertising, and many more. Some can be very rare to find, very costly and valuable; others can just be fun to add to your collection.
I entered one of my salt and pepper shakers in the fair one time. It was a kangaroo, with the baby joey sitting in a pouch. I won a ribbon for it. The picture is similar to the one I have. What I need now, is a display case for all my sets.
For very little cost, you can start your own collections of salt and pepper shakers. It is a fun hobby and a great topic of conversation.
