One For Me, One For The Booth

The thrifting the other day was spectacular!  Goodies of all kinds came home with me in just a few hours, and everyone I ran into was in a great mood.  It was a lovely way to turn my frown upside down!  (I had just left The Little Dude with my parents so he could go on vacation, and I cried like a baby.)
These sweet mid-century glasses by Georges Briard were practically tossed into my cart.  That's how much I loved them.  I was able to find eight of them, so I am going to sell them as two sets of four.  I was going to keep them for my house (that way my family has something to drink out of other than beer glasses on Christmas morning) but then I found the following set.

A few feet down the aisle these Luminarc glasses sang to me.  All eight of them will be living at my house, at least for now.  Won't these look fabulous with some Black Snowflake Pyrex?

Which set would you keep?

I found these stainless steel cups, but I don't know much about them.  They are fairly small so I don't think they are for milkshake machines.  It almost seems like they should have something on the outside, like a leather cover.  I saw a few examples of this online, but I'm not sure of it.  Does anyone know anything about these?  I'm going to sell them, but sure would like to know a little more about them.

And last but not least (for this post, trust me, there is more!)  my first spun cotton snowman!  Isn't he fancy looking with his little top hat!  He's going to live on my shelf, maybe even year round.  : )

Now I'm off to join the party at the Common Ground for Vintage Inspiration and then over to My Romantic Home for Show and Tell Friday.  Have a great weekend everyone!


  1. What an amazing haul so far! I would have died if I had found those glasses. Keep your fingers crossed that Maddie & I have some luck this morning:-)


  2. Love both sets of glasses, but I would have to agree with you. My faves to keep would be the second set.

  3. I think keeping a set is BRILLIANT!!!!!!!!! Those are adorable!

  4. Lovely glasses. I would keep the second set too since it has a handle (that way you can also use them for hot drinks like cider and mulled wine. Yum!)

  5. OMG I LOVE those Briard Santa glasses! You've been finding so many good things! Keep it all for yourself! I always regret parting with any of my vintage x-mas! LOL (so selfish of me) lol
