Thrift Report: Summertime Glassware

Hi friends!  I'm pretty excited that 4th of July week is here. My job is incredibly intense in the summer, and this is one of the few weeks when I'm able to take a break.

In honor of this week of blissful warm weather goodness, I thought I'd share some summery vintage glassware that I've picked up over the last few months. All of it will be heading to the shop soon!


These are so fun...a set of seven frosted Tom Collins glasses with a mod red and aqua design.


 I've had glasses like these in my shop before, but these are special because they are HUGE!  Seriously....like Big Gulp sized.



I think this little set of peach lustre rocks glasses is so pretty. Perfect for a more sophisticated summer bar cart.



Here's another fun set: eight little lowball (almost roly-poly shaped) glasses in a mod white and teal design. They go well with a little teal and gold cocktail pitcher I picked up a while back and stashed away.


And finally...


I adore these "sun tea" tumblers! I love the retro punch of the red graphics and the slightly tapered shape. I actually have a set of twelve that I bought in mint condition from a local consignment shop, but I'll probably sell them as two sets of six. Because, well...does anyone really NEED twelve sun tea glasses?  I would guess not, but you never know! ;)

That's it for today! Wishing all my US readers a safe, festive holiday!

xoxo

  2. The "Tom Collins" tumbler glasses I believe were made for Dairy Queen by Libbey. I have the pitcher that matches the sun tea glasses. Oddly enough, it is not a "jar" like you would think but an actual pitcher. Love the graphics on it!

    1. The Dairy Queen connection totally makes sense, now that you say that! THANK YOU for this info! Very cool that you have a matching sun tea pitcher...you're right; I've seen the jars (the bright yellow ones, usually) but never a pitcher!

    1. I know...Sun Tea is so retro, isn't it? My mom and her friends ALWAYS drank it in the 70s. I'm not sure on pricing for the shop yet, but if you're interested, convo/message me and I'll cut you a deal. ;)
