New barware (Status: let's have a drink with the Bopfish)

Time was I could drink like a fish... a Bopfish, perhaps?  On my way back from my home town I stopped at an antique mall in Delaware Ohio where I picked up this set of ten glasses.
Whoa, almost too many lines... causing an op art effect!  Maybe if we shoot from slightly above...
A couple of the glasses have some damage to their cool pattern, like this one where some of the gold washed away  
or this one where the black pattern has some dishwasher burn
Still, super cool!  They were priced at $24.00 but the booth was 75% off!

  1. Love the glasses and it's perfect weather for a porch cocktail! We’ve been eyeing that Hey Wake sofa in Delaware.
    If you get the chance to pick up the summer edition of Columbus Crave magazine, there’s an article in the back about a new place called The Grass Skirt Tiki Bar opening up in Columbus late summer and some of the cocktails are displayed in retro glasses. I especially love the pilsner. Hopefully it's just a little sneak peak into their plans for a super cool retro fun tiki joint!

    1. That Hey Wake sofa is pretty cool!
      I've been following the "Grass Skirt" plans for a year and a half. Fingers crossed, it'll be really cool.

    1. It's wacky that the story seemed to flair back up on Friday; I ended up do ing an interview with ABC News (dot) Com, the New York Daily News and a Canadian Broadcast Company radio show "As It Happens".
