I love sea lions, as many of you know from my posts about volunteering at the aquarium. I also love vintage salt and pepper shakers shaped like animals. Imagine my delight when, over my Christmas vacation in Michigan, I found not one but TWO pairs of sea lion salt and pepper shakers for my collection! I found both at Salt City Antiques on Michigan Avenue (Salt City will be mentioned in more detail in an upcoming post about antique stores). Can you believe my luck?
