It's that time of year; I need to make a round of the Good Will shops and look for some vintage cocktail glasses. The bartender at my foie gras poutine place just scored 10 really nice matching vintage cordial glasses. I'm jealous.
any tips on what to look out for? i see some sometimes but i can't tell if they are junk or worth picking up
I just look for things that appeal to me. Don't expect sets, I mean I'll pick up just a single glass sometimes. It's also cool to see just how huge our glasses are these days and how small a classic glass is. Here's a random pic I just found of the very first one I picked up:
I gave up booze for September so have had nothing to contribute recently, however, I just finished celebrating my brother's first child with some VEP Chartreuse, and then a tasting of El Dorado 15 vs. El Dorado 15 aged in sauternes casks.
