Salt-N-Pepa Shakers


These take me back to when I had a salt & pepper shaker jones and featured them regularly here.

They were created by Addie Gartland of Keansburg, New Jersey who wrote, "Finally, an easy way to tell the salt from the pepper. I can't tell you how many times I've grabbed for the pepper, given it a shake, and was like, 'What the hell is this white stuff?! Sugar!? Oh! It's the salt.' Now if Pepa was there all like, 'It's me you want. Ah, push it,' I would have enjoyed many a meal more."

More: "Now the confusion is over for you too! Each salt and pepper shaker stands 3.75" tall and 1.5" wide. These are glass shakers with stainless steel tops. These are my own illustrations, digitally cut out of vinyl and applied by yours truly."


Alas, once upon a time for sale on Etsy but now sold out.

I suppose you could make your own if you've got nothing better to do.

Wait a sec — what's that song I'm hearing? 

Yeah, Mike — I'm talkin' to YOU!

Periodic Table Belt



From the website:

Our process starts with natural vegetable tanned raw leather which is hand-screened, hand-dyed, and hand-set with steel or brass rivets. Graphics are printed in water-based ink; color is hand-tinted, then applied using eco-flo, low-VOC leather dye. The dying process involves custom tinting eco-friendly dye and applying many layers in order to get rich and lavish tones.

The belts are then hand-polished with a waterproof protectant. The careful attention to each piece creates a one-of-a-kind, long lasting, and unique accessory that only gets better with time. All belts include removable buckles and keepers.


Bringing it back to middle school Science class, this belt is hand screened with the Periodic Table of Elements. All belts are made to order and will be printed onto your color choice of leather. Please include size, color choice, and whether or not you'd like studding at checkout.


Belts measure 1.5" wide and are cut to your size when you order. Back is branded with our custom Heartcore logo.

This is a unisex belt. For women send your measurement where you like to wear your jeans and for men, send your pants size.
