I have never been much of a collector. Once I realized this, I decided I wanted to start collecting at least one thing. Over the past 10 years, I have been collecting single serving creamers. The moment I saw one for the first time I knew right away I wanted to start collecting them!
One thing I have found is they are hard to find! I have bought one off of Ebay but that just seemed too easy. I like the hunt. It has been fun over the years to find one a bit different from the next and add to the collection. I have about thirty now. Most of them were used to serve cream at diners. I actually haven't done much reserach on them. I just like the way they look. I do use them on occassion when a need a single serving of cream or I have found that they make a nice bud vase depending on the size of the bud.
I find it fascinating that someone decided that they would start to serve cream in an individual serving and designed a creamer for this purpose. I don't think I have ever seen anyone serve cream like this. I think we should go back to it. It was a lovely thing!
