Hedgehog salt and pepper shakers must be all the rage. I found the sweet kissing pair, made by Grasslands Road, in Estes Park, CO. The adorable toothpick holder, which goes beautifully with them, came from Galena, IL. My neighbor found the handsome brown pair at Kmart, and I saw similar ones at Target last fall. My son and his wife gave me the tiny hedgehog spoons made by Kikkerland for Christmas. My kitchen is certainly cuter with these additions!
Even Macy's is getting in on the hedgehog trend. A friend of mine found this pretty green hedgehog there. My son gave me the perky hedgehog note holder by Deahun for Christmas, and my sister-in-law found the soap dispenser at Bed, Bath, and Beyond. It seems that most of the major retailers have at least one hedgehog item. When I first stared collecting hedgehogs, they were extremely rare to find in the US.
