GATLINBURG (AP) — Nestled near the downtown strip in Gatlinburg is The Salt and Pepper Shaker Museum.
According to The Daily Times in Maryville, 37-year Andrea Ludden and her family opened the museum when they moved to Tennessee in 2002.
The collection started with 12,000 salt and pepper shaker sets and now boasts more than 20,000 pairs.
The shakers are displayed behind glass, 10 shelves high. Red radishes and purple eggplants sit in the same window as roly-poly chefs and lobster claws.
An identical pair of nuns smile from behind folded hands and pink cheeks. There are a pair of red bulls from Spain, peacocks from India and gondolas from Italy.
