The club started in 1983 and was originally called the Salt Shaker Collectors Club. Membership consisted of both antique and art glass single shaker collectors and novelty and figural shaker collectors.
As the club grew it became difficult to support two entirely different fields of collecting so at the 1987 convention it was decided to split the club membership into two clubs — the Novelty Salt and Pepper Shakers Club and the Antique and Art Glass Salt Shaker Collectors Society, now called the Antique Glass Salt and Sugar Shaker Club.
The “new” novelty shaker club quickly elected officers, started a newsletter and continued the tradition of an annual convention with a commemorative shaker.
Membership now includes collectors from 48 states plus Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Belgium, England, Germany, and The Netherlands.
We are a 501(c)(7) organization. Bylaws available upon request.
