Went today with my dad and husband. We really enjoyed our visit. I thought it was so cool how such mundane things can be shakers. Ended up buying 3 sets. Completely worth $3 if you like this kind of thing.

The Spanish proprietor's mother collected these 20,000 plus examples of salt and pepper shakers. Some were great art, some were really funny, and others were quite unusual. They did a great job of organizing the shakers by group, and there were interesting maps toward the...More

I came shortly before they closed and was warned that they were closing on time. I would still have to pay, but for $ 3, not such a hardship.. A huge unique collection, indiscriminately displayed, I thought, but no, there is a "method to this...More
