Chris, are your places mostly Antique shops or Salvation Army-type places or  ?????

Comment by Chris Pollock on September 10, 2014 at 6:23pm

This was about a 60mile trip one way. That's usually about how far we have to go. Usually skip at least a month before going back to the same place again.

Comment by Betty Proper on September 10, 2014 at 5:50pm

My heavens! You do find some lovely items.  How far and wide do you have to travel to find so much?

Comment by Chris Pollock on September 10, 2014 at 5:42pm

Here are some more

Comment by Chris Pollock on September 10, 2014 at 5:32pm

Today's finds. Photos aren't the best even though my phone is supposed to take excellent pictures. Will have to get my charger for my other camera on order. Anyway, here they are.

This is kind of out of focus, I'll have to try for a better one to post.

I need to re-do this one also

Comment by Chris Pollock on September 10, 2014 at 8:53am

What are some of the methods you all use to mark your glass so you know what it is. For instance, do you have a tag or something with the pertinent information placed somewhere on the piece? For now I've just got a piece of 3x5 card with the information written on it and set down inside the piece but that is so tacky.

Does anybody know who made my pink bowl?  Thanks for your help.

Pink glass Bowl

Comment by Chris Pollock on September 9, 2014 at 8:30pm

I'm curious about this bowl that I found awhile back at a GW. It rings like crystal or AB however there are four mould marks coming down through the center of the large hobstars only they only go to the bottom of the design not all the way to the bottom.  The glass is 3/8" thick the bowl is 8 1/4" W x 3 1/4" h.

Thanks Vicki, I'm working on ID's for everything new. If I can't find it I'm hitting up the Vintage Glass FB page. So far they've been a big help. Before the computer crash there was an area in my file manager for each photo called 'notes' where I'd made notes about what each photo was. On the new file manager, not such option. Even when I pulled over all my backups to this computer there was no such option. Luckily I've got quite a bit on Pinterest with what it is and also most every piece has a little piece of 3x5 card in it with what it is. Judy is determined to get a pink depression glass handled sandwich tray. Hopefully we can find one, going out again this week. You can sure tell she's felling better.
