Retro Cool Glasses for a Dinner Party.....

Do you know what is always exciting to an op shop lover and vintage hunter? It's finding out about an op shop tucked away that you never knew existed. Last weekend we ventured out on a bit of a pre-lunch adventure and it turned up trumps straight away.


There was no possible conceivable way these retro amber glasses were going home with anyone but me, so I grabbed the attention of volunteer pronto and got these babies wrapped up safely. I know it's a long way off but we are hosting Christmas dinner here this year with Ben's family, and these glasses are going to look amazing as part of our table setting I'm dreaming up......yes I'm planning that far ahead, I'm aiming for an epic blow their socks off celebration.

I love op shopping throughout the year for special occasions, celebrations and events and tucking things away. I know many people shop retail bargains through the year for Christmas a birthdays, but do you do the same for op shops scores as well? Do you have anything tucked away already?

They are gorgeous, I can't resist vintage glasses and would have snapped them up too!
Yes, I buy ahead too; for birthdays and Christmas. If you are buying secondhand, you have to get things when you see them, you might never see them again! xxx

They are fab, are they large glasses? I rarely find ones big enough for lager and cider and always snap up odd ones when I do!
Yes, I only buy secondhand so grab suitable presents all year round. x
