When I first married, everything had to be a complete set. I found it was impossible to keep up with drinking glasses, as they broke more frequently than I expected. I like clear glassware, and found that I could pick up glasses for as little as a dime at garage sales and thrift shops. They coordinate well on the table, and I have a steady supply if these break, too.
Thanks, Judy. Brings back a lot of memories. In my childhood home, the title would have been, 'Matching Jelly Glasses Is Unnecessary'.
The older I get, the less I am influenced about what is "supposed" to be.
My favorite tall, clear glasses come from the dollar store. I probably buy about 4 new ones a year because they break.
I got beautiful crystal when I got married, only to have my husband complain that they didn't hold enough. I bought beer mugs with handles, and we've been using the same 4 for 42 years now for iced tea. I finally gave the crystal away.
