searching for cheaper versions of wine glasses

  • 9

I'm looking for wine glasses that look like these, the small goblet preferably.

http://www.juliska.com/page3.html

only not $42/stem. Is there a specific name for these types of goblets? Crate and Barrel have had similar ones on the past but they're usually too big.

Normally I might not balk at the price when finally finding the glasses I've been looking for almost 10 years but at that price I'd either lock them up and never use them or be depressed for months when I broke one.

Thanks!

  1. Have you checked horchow.com? Similar stuff but not exact. It's a high-end site, but the stemware is still a little cheaper than $42 a glass.

    1. LisaLou, Check with your local restaurant supply house. If they don't have a design that you like in stock, they can order from a catalog. You will need to purchase a case of stemware, but the cost for an entire case will probably be less than $75.00. The best part of commercial glassware is its durability. Unlike the cheap stemware found at Target or expensive stemware at Macy's, commercial glass is designed for hard use without easily being broken.

      1. You might also want to try Cost Plus World Market. They have a very decent selection of glassware at reasonable prices.

          I was about to suggest that too. They would be more likely to have that more casual, old world look of the goblets you linked. If you're a bargain hunter you'll want to scour your local Ross/Marshall's/TJMaxx/Tuesdan Mornings, etc.

          1. re: Pei

            Also try Home goods which is the high end store of Marshalls/TJ Maxx. Good luck and let us know if you find them.

        2. Thank you for your help! Cost Plus appears to have something very clost and I can get 4 for a little over half the price of one of the Juliska's

          I'm going to take a look at restaurant supply places as well. Thank you for your help!
