Answer by  beck (1099)

These can be found in abundance at a variety of place. Start with antique stores and talk with the owners, tell them your interests and they can lead you to sources. Try flea markets and the best online auctions for every kind of antique salt and pepper you could ever want. Don't be afraid to bargain the price.

I think you should start looking at your hometown antique shop first and start from there. or if you can, you could create you own salt and pepper shakers and make them look antique!

My grandmother started her collection by visiting garage and yard sales. She would find all kinds of shapes and sizes. She increased her collection by visiting the local flea market.

Other peoples junk is other peoples treasure, so start with yard sales and the local thrift store. These items are priced cheap, just make sure they're unique and in good condition. Google them, see if you have a match and if you don't donate them back to the store. You just may luck up and get that treasure.
