I have always had a little bit of a fascination with drinking glasses. I remember when I moved into my first apartment, I went to the Goodwill store and bought $20 worth of just drinking glasses (those of us who go thrift shopping know you can get a lot of drinking glasses for $20).
I don’t really know what the big attraction is but I love all different kinds of them. I especially love vintage glasses. (I actually love vintage anything)
You may have noticed that lately a lot of department stores have been selling these beautiful vintage inspired hobnail glasses.
|Pier One Clear Dots Drinkware $6 for one|
|PB hobnail outdoor drinkware $36 for six|
I LOVE them!!!
Unfortunately They are way too costly and I can't imagine paying that much for a set of four glasses, regardless of where they come from.
Last week while I was in Dollar Tree looking for four inch round mirrors for my PB inspired Parat mirror, I came across these beauties.
|Dollar Tree Libbey Drinkware $1 each, for a total of $8|
They are 8oz clear vintage inspired glasses. While they are not exactly hobnail, they still have that look that I LOVE. And let me just say these are NOT made cheaply, they are very heavy, and just in time for Easter. Ya wanna guess how much I paid for all eight? Only $8 of course. Everything in that store is $1 .
I also noticed that there were many other types of drinking glasses that I would love to have, and for only $8 that is a very thrifty way to fill my drinking glass collection.
Anyone else love to collect drinking glasses?
