Let’s talk about glasses
Xylohouse’s are getting out of hand. We have
tumblers for short drinks (bought at euro Disney)
pint glass and half pint glasses from breweries + pubs (Oundle, Tiny Rebel, Rusty Bucket)
large wine glasses
gin goblet things
whisky/spirit glasses with an optional keeps-it-cold-without-ice
not in shot, weird little tasting glasses for sweet spirits. forgot they’re in the other side of the dresser.
It’s all going on, basically. And I’d estimate that we use them all over the course of a full year, but use only 20% of them regularly.
Tell me about YOUR glasses
Too many. Far too many

I also have a sideboard that opens like a cocktail cabinet full of glasses I’ll take a pic of later, but it’d look weird if I started emptying the top to open it up. It’s gorgeous though
This is the exact kind of vindicating post I needed
I just have normal glasses
Just remembered I have one of two unbreakable glasses left. Other one broke
came in the thread to find out what mouth glasses were
big fan of Peugeot disgustin whisky
You get Mercedes ones for the nice whisky I guess
I really like conical pint glasses. These ones:
Stick a stout in that, very aesthetically pleasing imo
Got a good selection of glass types.
But my favourite are a set of these stemmed pint glasses with the name of my backyard bar etched on them.
My boyfriend has loads of glasses that just sit in the cupboard gathering dust. Why does a man who doesn’t drink alcohol own so many wine glasses?
One for the unpopular opinions thread, but glasses are overrated - they are slippery to wash up, easy to drop and dangerous if broken. I use a mug for cold drinks and there’s not a damn thing any of you can do about it.
Rarely use glasses. Don’t drink much and if I did it could be drank just fine from the can it’s in.
We use the bottom left yellow tumblers for water at meal times or whenever around the house. The shorter green tumblers too on occasion and used with the little pitcher in the back. I made them myself.
