Fantastic Farm Auction at the Biggest Salt and Pepper shaker collection in the world museum
In September last year I went for a country town thrift shop kitsch hunt while visiting my mother in Toowomba, in Southern Queensland, Australia. I almost hyper ventilated when I accidentally came across this auction. It was between two small towns on a back road. A lifelong collector had recently passed and her full kitsch museum that I had somehow never heard about was being auctioned including over 7000 salt and pepper shakers which were the centre display in her dusty old museum that boasted to having the biggest salt and pepper shaker collection in the world. A sad day for the museum but a dream come true for an avid kitsch collector on the hunt
This is one of about 30 cabinets of salt and pepper shakers
But there was also a lot of other stuff – over 1000 lots in the auction – this is just one of many rows. This old lady was one fine hoarder
And here are a few close ups to get you hitting that jealous button
Some fine Australian Kitsch to show that American is not always kitschest – probably made in Japan too though
Nothing came in ones at this auction – money banks galore
Bidding was fierce
But bargains to be had – $20 – Cookie jars sold to the tall kitsch collector at the back – me
Ahhh – One of the happiest days of my life.
