Looking to buy good quality but not too expensive glasses (several kinds) in smaller quantities (2-6 glasses per style). Found a few sites that have items I like and was wondering
a) if they are good places to buy from
b) if there are any other sites to check out
looking at thebostonshaker.com, awesomedrinks.com and barsupplywarehouse.com
Want to get new old fashioned, highball, collins, hurricane, coupe glasses....with maybe a couple other unique/fun ones
I can speak of the quality of the Boston Shaker and have bought many things from there, but luckily I can inspect the glasses in person since I live in town. Many of the glasses are from Libbey but others are from higher end glass vendors.
The other places I can recommend are antique shops in your town or a few towns over. We'll frequently drive an hour+ to shop at stores that have great selections of vintage glassware. We've gotten plenty in the 50 cents to $5 a stem range ranging from cocktail to rocks glasses. Also, Salvation Army stores can be goldmines.
