I was beyond thrilled when I scoured my own 1960′s Dorothy Thorpe glasses a few weeks ago at two different Goodwills in Texas. I think I literally did a happy dance right in the aisle. I first found a set of the letter Q and took 4 of them home with me. There were a couple of extras there but they had dead bugs in them and were beyond filthy. I decided I did not need to bring the dirt home with me. When we hit the next Goodwill two glasses with the letter C, for Craig were there and of course I snatched those babies fast. When we got home that night I hit Ebay to see if they were authentic Dorothy Thorpe and was so thrilled to see that they were! Such an amazing thrift find and each glass was only 99 cents. They go for so much more on Ebay, again a happy dance. Craig surprised me a couple of weeks ago and came home with a package from Ebay with a set of 4 glasses with the letter L. I keep one of those glasses by my desk so I can look at it every day.
am on the hunt to find two more C’s so they are equal to my L’s
these were meant for me, don’t you think?
the letter Q has no meaning to me but I would love to collect the entire alphabet
perfect for a jewelry like myself, always remember quality control before you ship out a design
our initials, don’t they look sweet together?
the collection displayed on our shelf in the kitchen. I have a few other different collections that I cropped from the photo of non Dorothy glasses. Will be doing another post on those in the future
