Christie Antique Show finds [Part 2]

 At the Christie Antique Show my parents and I were looking for items that we want to add to our collection as well as items that my parents could resell at their Antique booth at Brydges Street Merchant Market in London, Ontario. We noticed at the end of the day that what we had picked up was vintage kitchenware's and quite a few salt and pepper shakers. I don't think we need anymore (s&p) for a while. I find vintage kitchenware is becoming very popular as it can be used in our everyday lives. Here is the salt and pepper shakers that we got!
This pair is a blue milk glass. It is not labelled but it is a very simple and colourful pair.

 This pair is a red/orange coloured polka dot pattern on milk glass. I believe it is made by Hocking company. These are worth $25-$28 each.
 This is a depression era pink glass. It doesn't have a pattern on it. We picked these up for 4 dollars!
This salt and pepper set is called the windmill pattern and is really popular. The lids were originally painted red, but with age this set has red speckling on the top and most of the paint has come off. They are milk glass with a painted blue windmill and red lettering. These are about 3 1/2 inch tall. These were made by the Hazel-Atlas company.
 The three spice jars are the Dutch scene pattern and have a different blue person on each jar. On the three spices the lids have been repainted and this is what the windmill lids would have originally looked like. Each jar is to have a red star above the name of spice. They are about 3 1/2 inch high and made of milk glass. They are worth $12-20 each.
This I think is my favourite. It is just the Pepper but it is really funky! It is a white milk glass that is painted yellow and has the black dots. It is also 3 1/2 inch high.
