Looking for coupe glasses

Hi all - I've been searching for some basic coupe glasses to have around for parties and am hoping to find the best deal. Being a non-industry civilian, I'm not sure where to go. I'd love to end up with 25-30 pieces, preferably dishwasher safe. Anyone have any ideas (that may not turn up on a basic google search)? Thanks folks!!

    $24/set of 6 . . . not sure if that's in the price range for buying 30 glasses or not.

      Those coupe glasses are $45 for the set; not $24.

    2. I think I've heard that Libbey (Libby/sp?) has decent prices for multiples. Depends on what size coupe you need...

      1. how about a restaurant supply? A lot of them sell to the public.

        1. Have you considered vintage glasses? One of the charity thrift stores here sells old coupes for 25/50 cents a piece. I've got a good collection of fun vintage barware from there. My stuff doesn't all match, but I figure that makes it more interesting. I love to drink out of my old glasses. Makes me feel festive. (i dishwash mine and have never had a problem.)

              Nice glasses. I do the same thing, shopping at thrift and antique stores. I have dozens of unmatched, and quite a few large sets as well.

                One of my best all time deals was 24 duralex picardie tumblers for $10.

                One of the stores prices glasses according to size. So gorgeous old coupes are considered "smalls" at 25ยข a piece, where a pint glass with a scratched up Red Lobster logo would be considered a "large " and go for $1. Totally crazy pricing system. Works for me though!
