The collection consists of more than 20,000 Salt and Pepper Shakers from all over the world. A labor of love of collecting for more than 30 years. See the amazing variety of animals, vegetables, people and other colorful shapes, and the creativity of all the artists that created them. Great fun for all ages!

I came shortly before they closed and was warned that they were closing on time. I would still have to pay, but for $ 3, not such a hardship.. A huge unique collection, indiscriminately displayed, I thought, but no, there is a "method to this...More
