Shake It Shake It Baby

In about 1975, you could pop into your local Thrift-T-Wise and pick up one of these salt-and-pepper shaker sets, for 39 cents.

I'm not sure in which Provinces these were marketed, but these were bought in Oklahoma.
I am pretty sure that "Table Size" means that these are the right size to go on your table. They are NOT the size of your table.
Unless you're Captain Action, maybe.
In case you wondered, these fine shakers with stylized Gypsies and elaborate "S" and "P" symbols did not come with the seasonings inside. So you could be a very subversive seven-year-old and put salt in the "P" shaker and pepper in the "S" shaker and wait for Dad to get mad.
