Where does this stuff come from?
Our items do have a little bit of a back story. Everything we sell comes from two estates the first belonging to my paternal grandfather and grandmother. The second estate belonged to my great uncle and aunt. Both men were in the military and traveled the world extensively, collecting every unique thing they could get their hands on. My great aunt was an avid salt and pepper shaker collector and the ones you see featured are from her collection. Every time we venture into our storage area we bring in another box and unearth treasures from their past, quite often we find a little-handwritten note tucked inside of items telling when and where they acquired it. Many people in our family have claimed several items, however, there is simply too much to hold onto and not all of it within people's interest. Putting it out here gives us the chance to give old treasures new light, out of the depths of the 1970's newspaper it is wrapped in, and into your collection where it can be cherished once again.
