Salt and Peppers on a Trip

OK, I admit it... it's been way too long since I blogged here! I've been focusing on my other blog and have been sorely neglecting this one. I'm sorry, dear little blog, I'll try to do better...

I thought today I would tell you about a little trip these cute salt and peppers took. I found them at an estate sale and listed them in my shop (which I have neglected too -- so many things to list, so little time!)

 Anyway, they recently sold and the shipping address was to a restaurant in Massachusetts. Curious, I did a little detective work and found that they were going to Bronwyn Restaurant which serves German and Central European dishes.

Don't these pretzels look good?

When the buyer messaged me that they had arrived, she told me how much everyone loved them, especially since they were made in Germany! I had to admit to her that I had put on my detective's hat and found the restaurant, and wished I were closer because my hubby LOVES German food!

So if you happen to go to Bronwyn Restaurant in Somerville, Massachusetts, look for my salt and pepper shakers!

  5. they are adorable. I thought at first ... salt... ...Somerville. But we're on the Letter R! Glad we all got the chance to visit your other blog. I say you need more time! {:-D

  6. That is really cool! Believe it or not, I have family near there because my mom was more in Somerville! I'll have to see if we can stop by to enjoy the restaurant when we're visiting cousins sometime.

    1. And by that I mean "born in." Thanks, autocorrect!

  7. I think this means you need to go visit them and see if they are being properly cared for -- and to have a bite to eat!

  8. I totally get why they bought those salt and pepper shakers! They are GREAT. I love them :)

  9. I'm glad they found a good home where they'll be well used!
