With kids in the family who can resist a special "silly" set - also makes getting help for laying the table easier if the kids want to get the little cats or funny apples out!! And... in 20 years time they will walk into a shop like mine and remember their childhood family meals - good eh?
Now, I have also been told of another use for these salt and pepper pots, depending on the number and size of holes people have told me they use them for hat pin holders - wow creative!
Most of the sets are in the $20 range. Email me if you want more information firstname.lastname@example.org.
