Vintage Love

I was tired yesterday. I'd opened the store, so that meant my day started sometime around 4:30... in the morning. Yup, there is one. Anyway, I was determined to get to my local thrift store yesterday because it was 1/2 price day and I'm on the search for an entertainment center for son's room. (More on that to come). And, of course, since I was there I had to check out the dishes.

Let me just clue you in on something. I LOVE dishes. I love anything from around 30's, 40's and 50's, but I don't discriminate if it's something truly incredible. I have quite a collection. More than my small kitchen can hold, but I'm working on that as well. Anyway, yesterday I made a great find. Check it out!

These are circa 1960's Hazel Atlas Souvenir glasses from Niagara Falls. I've never been to Niagara Falls, but I love the pictures surrounding the glasses and the fancy gold rim added to the top and they are in MINT condition. Best of all... there are 6 of them! I was so excited I scooped them right up. It wasn't until I got home that I was able to determine that they were produced by Hazel Atlas. Don't know anything about the company? Google them. I was amazed at the amount of products that I had either had or seen over the years that were made by the company.

So, the question is do I pass them on to someone else that will love them or do I hoard them... err, keep them for myself? Hubby was quite intrigued by them, but he mentioned that it doesn't help if I just keep it all. Looks like they are going to go into the Etsy shop that I'm putting together. Or not...

We'll see

Visit Common Ground and enjoy all the great projects there!
