I walked into a thrift store in Portland on Saturday and found seven Libbey #8475 5.5 fl-oz. sour goblets (not the case pictured above). I bought all of them for $0.99, each! Until about 2010, I used to find those fairly commonly in thrift stores down in big, bad Los Angeles. Unlike then, I am not going to broadcast exactly where I found them here!
Libbey discontinued this wonderful sour goblet in the mid1980’s. They should certainly bring it back!
If you are in Los Angeles and looking for glassware that you can purchase individually and pick up at the Elemental Mixology location, check out the glassware section of the Elemental Mixology storefront.
The auction just ended and I can break secrecy. Plus, I cannot resist gloating! Satisfaction is mine in the matter of an auction of fifteen of Libbey’s long-discontinued #8475 five-and-a-half-fluid-ounce Citation Sour goblets! That’s a case-and-a-quarter. My stock had dwindled to just three of them and I had withdrawn them from use by students. Today’s acquisition means that I will be returning this classic vessel to regular use during Elemental Mixology courses. Death to the coupe!
