For some reason I feel better knowing that such a thing as the Novelty Salt and Pepper Shakers Club exists. Although the website doesn't look like it's been redesigned since the mid-90s, it's up to date; there's information about their upcoming convention this July in Knoxville, Tennessee, and you can check out recent photos of shakers in their newsletter. Brush up on your shaker lingo with this handy guide to shaker designs (I'm a fan of the "huggers"). If you feel at home while browsing the site, joint the club!
