Vintage salt and pepper shakers make a fun addition to any meal and a great conversation piece. There are thousands of sets available, with a vast price range. Collectors should concentrate on a specific theme or it is too easy to become overwhelmed with the selection process. Even single shakers should not be overlooked. You can always mix and match! You could even use them for other finely ground spices.
Here are some of my favorite sets. Many vintage shakers were purchased as a souvenir from travel destination gift stores. Some are still recognizable, but often the vacation location has worn off.
