Vintage Crystal and Glass...

Crystal Candlesticks & Stopper - Vintage and more
One of my weaknesses when out thrifting is for vintage (or not) crystal  or glass candlesticks.  If they are crystal and a unique design and a great deal I usually buy them whether they are vintage or not.  With the glass ones I am usually only drawn to the vintage candlesticks.  Like vintage linens, they all seem to collect somewhere in my home.  I have a hard time parting with them.  If they commanded a great price I might be convinced to part with them, but on the whole they do not.

So, here they gather on my little hutch, which is almost full.  Guess I will have to part with a few if I find more I like.

What is your vintage weakness... or any other for that matter... that you find yourself collecting?

  1. Your crystal pieces are lovely, Leah. I have some pressed glass cake stands and Depression ware that are so pretty so I understand your affinity for these treasures. I'd much rather surround myself with these old beauties than things from "modern" stores. Thanks for sharing your lovely collectibles.
