Vintage Salt and Pepper Shakers

Do you have a Vintage Salt and Pepper Shakers collection? No? Well then you're in the right place to learn How to Start a Vintage Salt and Pepper Shakers Collection; it's as easy as 1, 2, 3.

Step 1: Check out the extensive selection found here.

Step 2: Click to go direct to Amazon to make your purchase.

Step 3: Repeat steps 1 & 2.

I almost hate to see them called vintage as I can remember some of these on our dinette table and my grandmother had a number that were off limits to us as kids. I recall standing on the step stool so I could see her assortment displayed in her kitchen cabinet.

Vintage Salt and Pepper Shakers make a fabulous collection for yourself or your kids because the supply is endless, they bring back memories and the designs are fun, happy, and well, they just make you smile. Best of all they don't cost much, many are under $20 some even under $10 so they make great birthday or holiday gifts.

There are a number of superstitions about salt and pepper you have probably heard them before and perhaps you have been known to carry them out. I didn't come from a superstitious family so I tend not to be so inclined but maybe I should.

Superstition says -

When you spill salt you should immediately toss a few grains over your left shoulder or all hell may break loose.

The salt and pepper shakers should be passed together and then set on the table not in someone's hand. I'm not sure what happens but seems like good manners to me.

If pepper is spilled you will have a serious argument with a friend, I guess its good I'm not much of a pepper fan.

So, do you believe in these superstitions or think they're just bunk?

Vintage Kissing Salt and Pepper Shakers

Ah, is there anything sweeter than Kissing Salt and Pepper Shaker sets? I’m thinking a collection of kissing salt and pepper shakers would be divine, the possibilities are endless and the selection immense. Personally I would start with the Bride and Groom and the Senior Couple because they’re sort of like the young and the old.

Did You Know?

That when in a restaurant if you sprinkle a bit of salt on a cocktail napkin the glass will not stick to the napkin, seems like a good way to avoid the flying carpet napkin trick if you know what I mean.
