Sometimes I wonder what my life (and my house) would be like without the charity and wisdom of other bloggers. I wouldn’t know about so many of my now favorite things. It would be sad and I’d probably still have the hideous yellow leather couch that came with my house, barren walls with only a few pictures hung here and there, no squash trellis, and I wouldn’t know about Seed Savers. I would never have found our amazing wedding photographer. The wedding in general wouldn’t have been nearly as cute (or as time consuming). Things would be different.
I also wouldn’t have a brand new set of glasses (in 3 sizes).
We’ve been looking for inexpensive, but semi-stylish glasses to replace our lovely Ikea set, but I hadn’t found any that I was sold on. We break them all the time (apparently not an issue with Duralex, thankfully), so I didn’t want to register for nice drinking glasses that we’d be replacing once a month.
I almost bought them on ebay, for a much inflated price. That would have been too bad. I read the Apartment Therapy article that Jora linked to, but was crushed when the glasses weren’t available online. Yesterday, before I clicked “buy it now!”, I called our Cost Plus just to see if they by some chance had any in stock. 20 minutes on hold and yes, they did. In 4 sizes. And I made the poor guy check to make sure they said Duralex on the bottom.
So now I have them. And the entire purpose of this post is to tell you that if you want them too, just go to Cost Plus. They apparently carry them all the time. Our store has a new shipment coming in on Monday or Tuesday.
