"Kathy, that was a wonderful anniversary gift. Lucky girl.
Yes, Vicki, giving Mikasa Crystal is a good idea for a wedding gift. Also I think it takes a few decades for most young people to get the appreciation of the vintage. …"
"Hey, something old is the best gifts, to me. I'd rather get a piece of VINTAGE glass any day for Christmas, than something expensive and new. But some of the younger generation you will need to explain that the item is a part of our…"
"Pretty bowl, Chris. Not sure I'll have time to do a little hunting for it today. So much going on. But I'd rather be identifying glass then out and about in this Christmas rush! LOL
MY OPINION ONLY, vintage glass is…"

"Angela, that is wonderful. You sure have done well for only collecting 4 years. You are saving our history, thank you. I know what you mean on eBay, I do allot of surfing on eBay getting prices and identifying my items, and once in…"
I am a member of the Glass & China Collectors of Bakersfield. I collect many types of glass. My favorites are glass & ceramic basket, L E Smith Bittersweet & Lilac. I also love Viking and old enamel ware items.

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
Its a blast collecting but even more fun sharing my finds with others. I have a rather slap-dash system but everybody gets a turn being displayed for at least a month. I have groupings on the dining room table-I commandeered half of a bookcase so there's 5 shelves there, plus I bought a chrome-look rack for the kitchen at Costco that has 4 shelves and I can get two displays on each shelf. I'm just about tapped out as far as patterns are concerned but you never know when a new one will appear. I have Inarco Mood Indigo and Orange Spice which are fairly easy to come by but the cool plum is harder to find. I,too, love the deep color. Thank you so much for commenting on my photos.
