One of my favorite set of s&p shakers at “Willis Wonderland”. There is an incredible collection of s&p’s at “Willis Wonderland”. I love how the spice has to travel up and through the neck to the head. Eight ball shakers.

Covered wagon shakers.

I love these and I’m assuming that these were issued as some sort of promotional item?

Ceramic dog shakers. Next to them is a pig driving a car.

New York City souvenir, plastic shakers.

    You can see the breathtaking beauty of the turkey S&P’s here: https://www.alleewillis.com/blog/2009/11/27/allee-willis-kitsch-o-the-day-vintage-turkey-salt-pepper-shakers/

    I have a lot of 8-ball kitchen accessories including these shakers, about four other varieties of shakers, a couple sugar bowls and two ice bowls. Some of those may be bowling balls but I guess it could go either way.

    I also have cowboy and Indian shakers that go along with the covered wagon shakers in the third photo.

    Not sure about the derivation of the Phillips 66 gas tank shakers but I’ve had them forever. I think I also have some Esso and Mobil ones somewhere.

    I love the dog S&P’s because they’re so elongated. I’ve had them at least 30 years and have never had to add salt or pepper. The pig driving the car set was given to me by my sister, who bought out some little old lady’s collection of about 100 sets 20 years ago in Omaha.

    I got the New York City toaster souvenir shakers when I was still living in New York. I never even noticed until now that the World Trade Center was on there.
