"Chris, that box with the vents, is a complete set of 8 Libbey cocktail glasses. They are still wrapped up, except for the two right in front of the box. The pattern is Straw Flower. They are very pretty.

"Chris, sounds like fun hitting the Goodwills in the big city. I went to 4 different thrift stores today. Didn't find any glassware, but I did get a few ceramic items I like. Oh, I did get a milk glass Hazel Atlas pitcher, but…"
"Yes, I think the mint green really goes with every color. I actually started a cherry theme in the dinning/kitchen area, with reds and then the colors just came into place. Every color looked so good. I love colors that Pop in the…"
"Marlin, I just washed my head lady and found this crack. How much of a price difference is it going to make. Here is a inside view and an outside view of the same crack. The brown on the cheek, looks like brown paint from the eye…"
"Marlin, May I ask what price you would suggest for my Velco # 10759 head vase. I see one on eBay for sale for $80. that is with shipping and one for sale on Etsy (as Donna pointed out for $224.) Bakersfield prices are usually lower than Los…"

Thanks Shirley, I feel in love with Carnival Glass the moment I saw my first piece, didn't have a clue what it was just knew I liked it. That piece was a plate, Fenton's Peacock and Urn. It was in a box with tons of other stuff. I was going through boxes of old 'stuff' a friend had inherited. Last Christmas he sent me that plate! I have about 85 pieces now. Guess it's time to take a few new pictures. :-)!!
Hey Shirley! Wow, great collections!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I myself am having to move in theopposite direction, getting rid of some things and downsizing because I am going to be building a small Tumbleweed home. But the idea is to furnish the home with functional antiques. So, I am looking for free standing enamel farmhouse sink, and a very small apartment size hoosier, so keep an eye out for me, okay? Robin
