I Know The Salt And Pepper Shakers Is The Girlfriends Thing But The Mr. Managed To Pluck These Gems From The Flea Mkt Last Sunday! Status: Russel Wright? For A Buck? Yes Please.
I've been on a streak with these Russel Wright Iroquois nesting salt and pepper shakers lately. Seems that lots of sellers don't know that they are anything special. Looks like I've got four and a half sets of these!
But before we take a closer look at the shakers check out these spiffy hand made pillows
that I picked up at the third estate sale from last Friday morning. I got all kinds of goodies
and still haven't shown you all of them! Don't worry...you can be sure that you'll have to
suffer through seeing all of everything sooner or later! But aren't these pillows sweet? They
aren't Barkcloth and kinda seem like fiberglass but are softer. I love the pattern. I've got
lots of drapes that kinda look like these but aren't as soft.
Nice catch, right? Whadoya think about the Trader Vics set? More Tiki = Good Tiki! You
know......these are small enough that you could turn them into X-Mas ornaments...if one were
so inclined! Mine are joining the Tiki collection. I don't yet know if I'm down with the green
Russel Wright S & P though. It's not the most appealing color. Anybody (Dana!) know
off hand what the actual color name for that is? I think the other set is in Ripe Apricot though
it's so hard to compare colors (and really dial it in) using pics on the web.
