My Kitchen Stuff


I am certain that most of you do not share my love of vintage kitchen stuff. My collection of these 1930's era kitchen shakers is my largest collection. The shakers were very inexpensive at that time, and sometimes a free give away. I have a set of these Roosters, however mine have a factory defect....there is no green on the glass rooster.



I have a few of these, mismatched colors.....but I like them anyway.



I have one of these in a sugar shaker. Many of the sets included sugar and flour, these are more difficult to find. In fact, the most common shaker to find is Pepper. The reason? The Salt shakers were often dropped and broken.



These Tipp City Shakers are a great set of spices....a rare find! Spices are more uncommon and valuable....and for a set $$.

My favorites are the shakers with the pretty designs on them, made by Tipp City Shakers. I have collected many designs, and my collection exceeds 125 individual shakers, many of the vintage metal racks, and wooden racks. I rarely purchase them anymore. I don't see any designs that are rare enough to collect, and that have a low price. I am thrifty...you understand.

I have been collecting shakers for over 30 years, and I think that I am pretty knowledgeable on the subject. If you have questions...I can probably answer them. Happy Collecting!
