This Little Piggy
These little piggy salt and pepper shakers came home with me today from my new favorite local antique shop. The "Shed" is run by an elderly man, who, I have a suspicion, doesn't really want to part with the hundreds upon hundreds of items in his care. And I do not exaggerate the extent of his inventory; Christmas ornaments, Tiffany-style lamps, and kettles hang from the ceilings; old library card catalog chests hold corks in many sizes, old power cords, hundreds of decks of playing cards, drawer pulls, and knitting needles; There are buckets of door handles and spigots and an entire aisle of salt and pepper shakers. There really is very little room to walk and the prices are a tad high (as I said, I don't think the owner really wants to sell), but if you are in need of an antique cane, or a Hall escargot server, this place is tops!
