Salt and Pepper

I love a good find in an opshop, most of what takes up my home is from an opshop, and part of the fun of opshopping for me is looking for cute and interesting salt and pepper shakers. I collect them and love finding really unique, modern, vintage salt and pepper shakers. My collection is getting quite large. I am needing more shelf space as the window they are sitting along is now full! Here is my collection, all opshopped or given to me by family from overseas adventures or christmas!

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
These are a bit sad. I need to fix a brocken neck.
 
These are our missmatched salt and pepper shakers we use everyday.
 
 
Hope you like my collection! Do you collect anything?

  1. I do like your collection-such a variety of styles-my faves are the painted wooden ones that look kokeshi-esq, and the peas are so cute! I love collecting, i have a collection of eiffel towers, a small collection of kokeshi dolls, and turkish style linen towels, crown lynn colour glaze crockery...i think thats it!

  4. What a fun collection...at least they don't take up very much room. Which ones are your favs? I am hopeless with vintage linen..some it is so bulky it's ridiculous but I love it & least I can sell some it if it threatens to take over whole rooms ; 0 Have a great week. Catherine x

  7. I used to collect s & p sets so I have quite a few knocking around. I really must show mine off one day soon. I like to collect Ladybird books, vintage sheets, wooden handled kitchen untensils and broken crockery from the beach(!). I used to collect more but I'm actually trying to declutter these days. xx
