About this project

****UPDATE: In the event you wish to own MORE THAN ONE PAIR OF ADORABLE SHAKERS just pledge the corresponding amount (10 for each random pair, 20 for each specific pair) and send me a message!!
*************************************************************
Hi. I'm Dannielle and when I was just a tiny child I inherited over 700 pairs of salt and pepper shakers (http://shakers.tumblr.com) from my great-grandmother, Verna May Roberts. I have since found homes for a good number of them, but still (15 years later) have a "crap ton" that are still in foster care (aka my living room).

You see, I'm moving to New York City this spring (to follow my dreams) and I can't possibly bring them all with me, but there's NO WAY I'm leaving them on the streets to fend for themselves. It's a scary world out there and no one should have to live this crazy life alone.

My goal is to find a good home for every pair of shakers before my lease runs out (March 31, 2010). They're all good shakers, none of them have ever been any trouble to me, and I want them well-respected and cared for as long as they live. $10 gets you one pair of shakers. 500 shakers at $10 each is $5,000. So that's my goal! If every shaker doesn't find a home, no one gets a home...depressing, right?

You can see some of their conversations here:
http://shakers.tumblr.com

ALSO, if you want to get really intimate with the shakers, you can watch the "hit" reality series, Shaker Love, donate just one tiny dollar and you'll get more information on the weekly drama.

Be careful though, you just might fall in love.
