In Response to Re: GALE-PINK GLASS:
Hi Vickie you should still treat yourself every now and then.I can't believe some of the prices on all this stuff when i was 12 I started collecting you could get depression glass for pennies now it's through the roof on many pieces.Did you know that there are clubs,depression glass clubs for collectors! I will keep my eyes open and will let you know if I see any good deals on pink depression glass. The bunny hugs salt and pepper shakers were designed by a woman by the name of Van Tellingen she was an illustrator of children's books.She designed these for a company,don't remember the name of the company.I bought these at Goodwill for a whole Dollar.Not knowing anything about them,just because they appeared to be vintage.As far as I know she had 9 different salt and pepper shakers.I just found the ducks and I don't even want to say what I paid for them.These were produced during the 40's,50's and I think early 60's.There was a fire in the factory and all the molds were lost.These were designed to be picked up together to salt and pepper your food. I think these are the cutest little things.

Gale I didn't know that there were clubs for the glass! The shakers are cute and now I will also watch for these. It was interesting reading about the history of the shakers. I think I was born in the wrong time era. I like many vintage things. I feel like I'm displaced living in a town and when I lived in the mountains for five years while I was married I felt like I was "at home." Came to live back in my home town and I feel like home sick for the mountains. I like camping and "home-y" food. There's other things but don't want to bore you! :)
