TIN SALT AND PEPPER SHAKERS

Found these in the clearance bin at a store recently, $1.97 for the set...

Retro tin salt and pepper shakers
...and of course just HAD to buy them for the farm.  Not sure how practical they'll be, but come on, they are too cute to pass up!

Any of you find anything special lately?

Have not been able to post a comment for about a week - this window did not come up. These are SUPER and very "farmy/cottagey". re the Ribshack Red, a good inexpensive South African wine from our 70 year old Douglas Green estate, very popular and excellent with our traditional BRAAI (pronounced BRY)- BBQ to you LOL - but also very good with spicy food, e.g. curry

Oh, I love them. They are unique and different than the regular everyday plain S&P shakers.
You find the coolest and best finds. Shakers are also great for powdered sugar to sprinkle on French Toast, fresh homemade donuts, waffles, pancakes etc.

Those will be perfect for the Farm! So colorful. Another great bargain find!

Brilliant find, I love them!! How will the salt go in the tin? Do you think it will corrode it?

MaryJo said...

Whimsical, fun shakers with a vintage flair! Lucky find + a great price!

Gail said...

I like these.

FionaG said...

LOL!! Thanks Sharon but I actually meant whether the salt would affect the tin as opposed to how you get the salt into the tin. I can see how you took it the other way though.

Sorry for delay in replying. I'm glad you were able to comment, thanks of this. I love that the winery is near you. That's cool. It is very good with the bbq and grilling and I love that it's good for spicy foods, thanks for the info! Stop by, hope you will still try to comment.

Thanks and yeah, I never thought about shakers for stuff like powdered sugar. Thanks!!

1st Man said...

The inside is coated in a protective coating so I think it will be ok. Hopefully!! Ha.

1st Man said...

Thanks!!!

1st Man said...

They add pops of color too, so that's nice. Thank you!

1st Man said...

Yep, makes it easy. Though It think she was also asking about salt reacting with the metal inside.

1st Man said...

Great pops of color for sure!!

1st Man said...

Definitely, thanks!!!

1st Man said...

Thank you, I smiled when I found them, ha.

1st Man said...

Ha, I kinda thought about that but wasn't 100% after seeing the other point of view, ha.
