My (Very Spoiled) GS Rescues! :) I think most of us "glass lovers" also seem to have an "animal lover" gene!

Your glasses are very unusual Kathy, but I also think they are modern. The thing that is bothering me with those though, is the top part? Is that cased glass, or is the top actually frosted?

It's a bit confusing, The stem and base appear to be blown amber glass as you say, but I'm not at all certain that's the case with the top?

  Our Animal Shelter has a Hugh Garage Sale Once a year at the Fair Grounds. It lasts three days with donations pouring in every day. The profit helps so many animals. Wonderful to see so many animal lovers.

Happy Holidays everyone.

At first I thought these Martini Glasses were probably some thing Pier One would stock.

They are not identical. Amber encased glass, 7.5 inches tall.

Very unusual.

LOL Shirley! and Bless your heart! Now, I wish I had time and a strong back for such an endeavor, as you know I do LOVE my Doggie Charities! and in fact, I did donate all the cute little dog collectibles left over from this estate ( including many Lennox USA Schnauzers - as new with boxes) to a friend of mine who does auctions to raise money for dog and cat rescues. :) I packed them all up and shipped them out to her for her upcoming FB auction. She donates 100% to rescues!

But, with my back and lack of time I don't think this would be a possibility either - but it's a fantastic idea! :)

Awww! Vickie, I have a solution for you for the left overs!  LOL  Pay the estate owner for all the left overs (after the estate sale) and open a thrift shop yourself!  LOL   Then you can donate the money you make to helping the dogs and cats of your area.  Well, just a thought anyway!

Thank you Chris, I have donated to the Vietnam Vets also, they are willing to pick up and take all "small" things. They will not pick up furniture or any heavy items though. So, this presents a problem for me too. UGH! I just wish some charities would "see the light" here! I really think they are missing out on many good opportunities to make a lot of $$ for their people!

I understand them not wanting to take "junk" nor would I expect any of them to. It was just so shocking that really beautiful, mint condition furniture and vintage housewares (most new in the box - never used) would be more "acceptable" for Pete's sake, ya know? LOL My son finally finished up last night, God Bless Him! I just got my clients check mailed out, so I am "officially" DONE!

"Happy Dance" Back to Glass - at last, at last! :)

Vicki, before I wrote, I thought about the items belonging to others.  However, when you mentioned that these were items that you were wanting to donate to charity, I thought that they were items you simply had to dispose of.  I also had not thought of the possibility that your customers might want to take a charitable tax credit for them. :-)

We have VNA / HOSPICE THRIFT STORE HERE .I like donations to go there

Comment by vicki hufstetler on November 19, 2014 at 6:04pm

Hi Betty, I am familiar with Freecycle and I do like the concept. I'm afraid it is not at all practical for my purposes though. I cannot leave other peoples items just laying about for someone that may or may not be coming for pickup. You see, these items do not belong to me, they belong to my client. I do as they wish me to do. This one just turned out to be a much Bigger job, than I had planned on it being. The season has a lot to do with the problems here to. Oh well, yet another lesson learned, and at least my kid made a few bucks, so it it Almost completed - Thank Goodness! LOL

Comment by Betty Proper on November 19, 2014 at 5:51pm

Vicki, if you are giving items away, how about trying freecycle?  I realize that you have to "be there" if the items are not at your home, but while some folks do not come when expected, many are quite willing to.  When someone wants something that we have offered on freecycle, we just leave it on the non-screened section of the porch for them to come and pick up.  (This month we are having the logs from a very old large tree that had "given up the ghost" being taken away to be used for firewood.  - In this farming area,  you do not need freecycle for such, when folks see a tree being taken down, they knock on your door and ask if it is "spoken for". :-)
