    Years ago I used to collect salt and pepper shakers. Those days are over but this is a set I bought at the very first auction I went to.

    I'm not too crazy about live auctions, I can't handle the adrenalin rush! haha

    The Uncle Moses wobbles a little and it scared me to no end, I thought he was going to tip over when they wheeled out the cart they were on. Well, as you can see, he's hanging in there and it's been over 30 years and is the same condition now. That's just luck tho.

    Most of these sets are in red and you all know by now, blue has been in my collection (I should say "museum" right eye? haha) for some time now and that's why I bought them.

    Thanks for looking.

      Great couple - I love them.
      I get the museum bit......I have one but not organised, cataloged or tidy even!
      I'm going to use Eye's term too lol!

      Hey Share these are very cute! Have you gone to the King Richards monthly auction in Whittier? I can't sit around that long but fun to watch for a little while. I used to go to Native American (closing Pawn shops, trading posts, collections) and LOVED the adrenaline rush. We'd get a pint of good beer, read the Vogue magazine and nonchalantly Pounce when our items came up....that was the early 90's. I haven't seen that auction company in years. Love my bracelet too! Thank you. Will post it soon. I'm behind...holidays you know.

      Thank you Phil, I have only seen a couple since I've had these. I listed them a long time ago too but they didn't sell. Guess I'll continue to keep them. Happy new year!

      I started collecting a few years ago. I love anything odd or usual!
    15. shareurpassion shareurpassion, 4 years ago
      Lamplover, Oh that's an easy fix. Come on over!!! haha seriously!

    16. shareurpassion shareurpassion, 4 years ago
      LL These two are long gone now. They were my first purchase at an acution back in the mid 80's. An experience I'll never forget!
    17. Lamplover78 Lamplover78, 4 years ago
      I feel that way at times just on ebay lol... so i bet! I was in California 2 years ago. Was not what i expected! Of coarse i went when it was kinda cold. Beautiful flowers tho!

      Think these went with a blue stove. Nice
    19. shareurpassion shareurpassion, 3 years ago
      roaddog, that's very possible. I was just reading the comments and I didn't say why I would never forget that first live auction, one of the main reasons was because the little man shaker kept wobbling! I thought for sure he was going to do a face plant! Yesterday I saw a stove like I used to have. A 1930's Wedgewood, black and white with the light that came from the back and up and over. I loved that stove! I'll go back there and take a photo of it. Thanks for the comment!

      Lamplover, how's your collection going? I have 3 sets left. I'll have to post them. You do know a very good tell tail sign of the authentic old ones is the bottom hole where the cork goes, because they are never perfectly round!

      A very belated thank you to those of you that stopped by!
