Cranberry Glass.............

Welcome to "THRIFTY THURSDAY" hosted by Leigh of

http://lbratina.blogspot.com/ Today I'm showing some Cranberry Glasses that I picked up at a Garage Sale.......this summer. It was two ladies and a husband who were selling their lil' neighbours stuff, well some of it but the rest of the stuff was theirs.

They were originally asking $10 for the four Cranberry glasses, they said they were well over a 100 years old and belonged to the lil' old ladies Grandmother. I told them I will take them if I can get them for $4 and after some hmmmm's and ahh's they said 'okay'. It was kind of late and they wanted to pack it in so I guess that is why I got a bargain.....otherwise they will probably just be sitting away in the basement in a box.

Close look at the details.
My Mom got me started collecting Cranberry Glass, she had a vast collection.

Thank you for stopping by and be sure and visit http://lbratina.blogspot.com/ to see other treasures.
Happy Thrifty Thursday!!!!!
