Vintage Glassware Haul

glassware20151217

Here is one positive consequence of the fact that most so-called ‘craft cocktail’ bar-tenders and enthusiasts are followers in the herd of BarSmarts-educated coupe users: I can usually walk into any Goodwill in Portland and find pre-prohibition specification glassware.

In Portland — where mixological mono-culture seems especially severe — neglected, absolutely-traditional glassware is gathering dust in thrift stores.

Who the f*ck cares that coupes are rare in Portlandia’s Goodwill stores when you can find authentic [from left to right, above] cocktail goblets, daisy goblets, sour goblets, cordial goblets and eggnog goblets?

Let us hope that the non-diverse, coupe-kudzu, bar-borg don’t catch on until those of us in the know have sniped all the low-price gems like these!
