It all started with a few pepper mills on a California windowsill.

Andrea Ludden, 37, says her mother's collection of salt and pepper shakers eventually grew so large that at one point her family had 2,000 sets boxed underneath another house where they lived in Texas.

"Finally my dad just said, 'This is enough,'" Ludden said. "He said, 'You've got to do something with this.' And she said, 'Let's open a museum.'"

Geesj, over 20,000 !!!
If you visit that place, how can you ever look at ALL of them ??

OTOH, after reading this, I looked for ALL the shakers I have ....
I found 17 sets ...
Did not realise I had that many ...

So I can see where this is easily possible to get there .....
