Anything glass I absolutely love! I've always had a weakness for pretty bowls. I like the pressed glass vintage bowls. I love the Depression glass and the many colored glass. Some of my collecting has gotten out of hand, however, I do have an Antique booth in Daphne AL where after I love some of my things a little while I may take it there to share with another glass lover. At times I have a very hard time sharing though and continue to love a piece that I've gotten at any estate sale or auction.
Hi everyone! I'm new to Just a Pinch and so far am really enjoying it. Was really excited to find this group.
I am recently retired and loving it. For years I have on the side been an antique and vintage dealer specializing mostly in glass and dishes.
I am not trying to sell my goods to you (please believe that) but I do have a killer library of reference books and would love to join in on any discussions.
I started all this when I inherited some old dishes from my grandmother and bought a book to identify them. It just mushroomed from there. I quickly though fell in love with glass. I especially love the feel of a quality piece of glass.
Many years ago (hmmm, way too many!) I fell in love with a cobalt bottle at a flea market & my interest soared. Now I have hand painted barber's bottles & medicine bottles, my interest doesn't stop with just one thing.
My late mother-in law left me a wonderful book on American glassware & I guess I'm sort of a cobalt glass nut.
I am not having any people coming this Christmas eve. It kinda sucks being in a town where you don't know anybody well enough to have over for Christmas. Anyway I think I will use my fancy glass for just my hubby and I. Do it up real pretty.
My love of glass started when my mother gave me some beautiful candlesticks that I had always admired on her mantel. She had gotten them from the S&H Green Stamps store back in the 70's. After she passed away in '03 I researched the candlesticks and found out they were a Fostoria etched pattern and have collectors value. I have been collecting more glass since then-I just love pretty glass!
