November 15, 2012My New Favorite Glasses………….Thrifted Retro Atomic Turquoise Starburst Glasses!
Oh my gosh y’all………..I was shopping in a thrift store last week and I about keeled over I got SO excited! You know how it is, you are walking the aisles – kind of cruising along and not really expecting to find anything that great when ‘Whammo’ it hits you right smack in the face. Then you get kind of jittery expecting someone else to come up right behind you and snatch everything out of your hands. Well, that is why I pretty much ran to the checkout when I found these little pretties!
Holy Macaroni! Turquoise Starburst Glasses!!! Eeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
And a whole entire set of 8 too!
And guess what – no chips, no cracks, no dishwasher haze crud…….nothing! In fact they look as pristine as the day they were made!
They measure almost 6 inches tall and look to be a standard drinking glass size.
Ummmmmmm yeah, I was pretty much freaking out!
So I gathered up all of the glasses and high tailed it to the register and after ringing up my purchase I paid a total of $ 5.92 for all of the glasses! The glasses were 74 cents each! I know, crazy right?!?
Here are some pictures with white napkins in them so you can see the stars a bit better.
There are varying sizes of aqua stars all over the glasses. So cool!
Sadly there is no stamp or mark on the bottom.
Does anyone out there have a clue who made these and when??? Has anyone seen these before?
I personally have never seen this style of Starburst glasses before, so I was really excited when I came across these!
Has anyone else come across some cool retro glasses lately? Let us know!
